Rear wheel lug bolts

I have a 2006 adventurer 38J RV. The chrome wheel cover on the rear dual wheels became loose when someone drove too close to a curb or something hard. As a result, the lug bolts have become lightly damaged and the cap nuts that hold the chrome cover on do not tighten down all the way. I need to identify the lug bolts size and thread which seem to be 7/8" fine thread and wonder where I can get a thread repair chaser repair die to clean up the damaged thread and then buy new chrome caps. I am handy mechanically but have no clue about truck parts or repairs. It seems to me that the lug bolts may be damaged from time to time when the tires are changed so I am hoping I am not asking for mission impossible.

I tend to visit a number of forums on different subjects and that has me with mixed feelings. Forums can provide very good solid information or sometimes it is really not good, at all. So when faced with some things, I tend to want to do my own looking rather than ask and risk getting the wrong info. Some involves how much it will cost me in time, effort and money if the info is wrong, sometimes it involves how much trouble it will be for me to find out myself.
Tending to trust myself, I take the lugnut to a place where they have one of the boards to find what bolt fits the nut and that gives me good reliable info for ordering the nut or thread chaser. But I do know there are times when the lug bolts are changed out, so it gets down to how bad and how you feel about buying the thread chased versus having the bolts changed out.
Do you happen to know if the simulators are Dicor brand?
I found really super service dealing directly with them for the small part/lugnuts. I was involved in a trade and wound up with new wheel covers but missing two lugnuts, so the good fellow sent them to me FREE!!!! Not much better than free? They mostly work through dealers but some small parts are dealt directly apparently.
Phone number 574-264-2699 if you want to talk direct to them but their website may also be a big help on ID of the size for your model rig.
