Was referred to these as a replacement for the amazingly cheap lug nuts that came on my car.

They are simply works of chrome art! Absolutely beautiful and work perfectly on my wheels!

Nice nuts, really nice...

Good concise web site. I didn't go to any price list. They don't appear to be cheaply made.

The only product I'd be scared of is the colored plastic "dress-up caps".
No tellin' how'd they fit on old hardware.

I looked at them for my Liberty and they seem great until they see a few salty winters. Which won't be an issue for you. If I still lived in FL I'd use 'em.

Had some on a car in Pa., they held up well. Got them at Summit Racing. Amazon undoubtedly has them.

I have some chrome Gorilla lug nuts on my Winter wheels and they get a lot of surface rust. You have to keep that chrome polished a couple times a year. The socket that came with them seems to be nice and heavy duty like an impact socket(probably is).

If you are into nuts, check out the McGard spline drive units! wink

I had their lug nuts before. Great looking product, though I used the ones with the stainless caps over the steel nut. I didnt wanna risk the chrome ones because I worked it a tire shop and had never seen a chrome lug without peeling plating. I dont know if it was any better tho as if you didnt have 100% engagement of the lug you would twist the cap. I ended up keeping a spare pack in the trunk for when someone inevitably broke one. I went though like two packs before I wrecked the car.
Maybe I shouldve risked the chrome ones instead.
