Well that depends, Gorillas are cheap and spline drive, so that's good. Kyokugen are really light (if you care about saving every last ounce you can), but some people have had problems with them stripping. So, I would say pick either one, but if you get the Kyokugens, be careful if you ever let a shop take your wheels off/on.

Personally I use spline drive McGuards and McGuard locks.

I've been using Gorillas. 1/2 year on my SubZeros and then 1 year on my Attacks.

I'm using McGard splinedrives. They're expensive, but after making a Kyokugen experience , I wanted the best.

Stay away from kyokugens...

I've used gorillas for over a year now with no problems. I might move on to the mcgard ones when I feel like spending money again.

I just got the Zenki lugs from Revolution - part number is DNC-34A . Sounds silly, but make sure to get enough - they come in a pack of 16, but you need 20, so get a 4-pack as well. They're so light it's amazing!

OK, I looked at Revolutions Motorsports site and they come in a pack of 20 (not sure why you're saying 16), with matching valve stems.
So I want the 1.25 pitch; how long???

Thanks,

Rod

This is true. Revolution knows that you need 20. What I was just saying is that Zenki sells them in sets of 16 and 4. So Revolution would ship you two packages, one of each, but if you buy them somewhere else, make sure you get enough that's all.

I got the short ones, in black (to go with black subzeros)

I used acorn type lugs on my Rota Tarmacs, but my Formels have the deep wells and a 19 mm socket head can barely fit in the holes so i got smaller diameter kyokugen lightweight 7 sided lugs with the adapter key fitting to a standard 19mm head. They look great and fit well.

Default Stock lugs...lol

I've been using my stock lugs with my Attacks....wheels haven't fallen off yet....lol.

Just make sure you torque them to at least 70lbs and retorqe after x amount of mile (forgot how many) because the rims will give a little and re-torquing is necessary,..or so they say. Otherwise your wheels will fly off the car and you'll explode...or something like that.
