Question Which Lugs?

Hey guys, looking for your opinions on the color of lugs I should get. I have some Steel Grey (Gunmetal or Dark Grey) SDR's that are going on a Silver WRX sedan. I'm leaning towards black, what do you guys think?

Black is definitely the call, but since I did not pay too much for my wheels/tires...it just doesn't seem right to pay $80 for lugs...you feel me? Leaning towards getting some Muteki's or Gorilla's (spline style).

Gorilla also has plain hex lugs in black chrome. Special order them whereever Gorilla lugs are sold. You can find Gorilla's catalog here:

This is good to know. I went to a local shop (Wheel Warehouse) and they only had chrome Gorilla's (non-spline) in stock. I've decided to go w/ Muteki's in black...Since not too many people have reported on them, I'm a little hesitant...I'll post a review in a bit.

If all goes well, I'm getting some black Muteki's through an ebay seller for $36.00 shipped. Just waiting to receive them at this point. The seller is from Mach3accessories.com if that helps.

Thanks Hank...if my deal falls through on my Muteki's...the new Zenki's may be a great option.

Are there any good black lugs that include a lock nut in each set of five?
