Just wanted to do a small review on Drop Engineering Lugnuts. They are nice and light but they change colors, and not too happy about that.

They should look like this:

But now look like this:


Called Drop Engineering and they said they can't honor the lifetime warranty because they turn colors if you use wheel cleaner or use power tool to remove and put them back on. None of which i have done in under a year i have had them.

Other than that they don't look bad bronze now but would prefer black as they were when i bought them. And I do like that the are very light. So just forewarning if you buy these expect them to color change lol. I hate to do a bad review but this is for people to know before they buy them based on my experiences with them.

That's strange... but how could you sell something that is going to be exposed to wheel cleaners/different chemicals and not honor a warranty for them completely changing colors?

They do look good bronze though.

Exactly! All i did was wash and dry wheels, im thinking sun wear? Even still shouldnt do it , replied back to them saying i was very disappointed they dont stand behind the quality and longevity of their product, got no reply back. Pretty shady if you ask me.

Its not sun wear. I've had mine over a year and park outside. Still black.


I wash my wheels with regular car wash soap, what do you use?


Also its weird that they turned bronze...instead of a normal aluminum gray.

Maybe they had a bad anodizing batch where they were prepped wrong?

I know i was tripping out when they did this it started slowly fading. I just use the meguires gold class soap. Bad batch is possible! I just cant believe the horrible customer service.
