Y​ou need to take the drum off and into a shop or automotive store and have them punch out the remains of the old ones and install some new studs. They can give you the correct size lug nuts as well. If they have a new drum, that might be cheaper. Double check the torque in the rest of the lugs to be sure they are tight. Did you have these off recently and someone didn't torque them properly?

you don't know the size? I just wanted to know that. I am not happy with this answer
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 9 months ago

We have no way of knowing that. They aren't "bolts" as you put it. Depending on who made the drums they can be about a dozen different sizes. I would go ahead and just take it into a shop for service then or call a good mobile tech. Put in for a full refund here. Not a problem..........
