Smile Just In: Mcgard Spline Drive Lug Sets

UPS just dropped off the black Spline Drive lug sets earlier today.


Set comes with:
(20) Spline Drive Lug Nuts
(1) Spline Drive Lug Socket
(4) Valve Stems
(1) Storage Pouch For The Socket


Sincerely,

Here is a Spline Drive lug compared to a stock lug:


Here is the difference between the Spline Drive installation tool and a 19mm socket:
The socket is 25.5mm in diameter and the install tool is only 20mm which allows it to fit into small lug recesses found on some wheels.

Are the black McGard Splindrives going to be $69.95 as well. Also, are they 20 splinedrive lug nuts and no locks or 16 splinedrive lug nuts and 4 locks?? Let me know. Pics will help too. If they include the locks, I got dibs on one set. Let me know when they come in and I will order them. Thanx.

The spline drive lug socket essentially acts as a "functional key" as well as adapter to be able to put them on and take them off. All 20 in the set would be the same. Yes, I know, they also make "key" lug nuts, where you have 4 that are the normal type, and one that also requires the "key" to be able to get it off. I'm using these to secure my Fikse wheels onto my WRX, and I figure for most intents and purposes, the fact that you have to use their special adapter to take the lug nuts off, will deter most wheel stealing thieves. Of course, having a locking nut is certainly an additional layer of security. I just didn't do them because I wanted all 5 of my lug nuts (at each wheel) to look the same. I'm using the blue tipped ones, which are a fun match to my WR Blue Pearl WRX. I really like the McGard SplineDrive lug nuts.

Rally Punx, The black lug set will be $79.95. These kits don't include seperate locks but like Goodfinder said the spline drive lugs themselves are quite a deterrant.
Here is a picture of one lug and the socket:




Goodfinder, Thanks for sharing your experience with the Mcgards.

suby ej25,
These prices are + shipping right now. Shipping weight is assigned as 1 pound so the shipping is pretty inexpensive.

I'll probably be in for a set in black, I need some new lugs before spring, and have heard nothing but good things about these. Just to confirm: The spline drive lugs will be at least as durable as regular, six-sided lugs? Will they survive for a few years even if I change wheels 20 times a year? I had a bad experience with a product from a different manufacturer, so I'm somewhat paranoid and want to be very sure that I buy the right lugs this time.

Would it be possible to get an extra socket? I sometimes loose stuff.

The black lugs just arrived earlier today.


TheWRX,
Yes, the durability of these lugs should be equal to or greater than that of the stock lugs. I have never heard of anyone having any problems with McGard lugs, they are simply a very high quality product. I don't have any extra keys in stock but I will order some with the next order.

WRC WRX, yes these lugs should fit the Slip Streams just fine. I just added the black lugs to the website, you can find them here: http://www.oakos.com/Merchant2/merch...ory_Code=1000. We offer SSL encrypted online ordering on the website.

suby ej25, You have mail!

Barry, Thank you very much for your order. I am sorry but they will not be shipped out today. UPS is accepting packages today but they will not be processing any packages received today until Thursday. I will be shipping all outstanding orders first thing Thursday. I will mail you your tracking number at that time.

Thanks & happy holidays!

I just purchased Rota sub zero's in bronze, what color lug nuts should I buy; I'm assuming bronze, do the mcgards come in bronze?

The McGards are only available in chrome or black. Ultimately color combinations should be chosen by the car owner based on what they think looks best. In my opinion, I think black lugs look good on bronze wheels.

slprwrx, Rays Engineering may make some lugs in bronze, I am not entirely sure though.

blackbok, Thank you very much for your order. You lugs will be in UPS's hands around lunchtime today. UPS's website estimates the delivery date to be January 6th. I bet you will see it late next week though. I will send you a shipment confirmtion email after it has shipped.

I don't stock the 1.5 pitch lugs like the Toyotas use. I can order a set with my next purchase if you would like. That will probably be in about a week.
