I don't know what the Porsche lugs are made of, but the Volk/Rays ones are made of duralumin alloy, which is not soft. I'm sure it would be easier to damage the threads on them than on normal steel lug nuts, but I've been using mine for 4 or 5 years with no issues.

Where did you order them from? I never even knew BBS sold lug nuts, I'm just curious.
