Default lugnut question

I would like to know what lugnuts are better. The rays lugnuts or the Mcgard spline drive lugs. Price is not an issue, I just want something to protect my rims. Most online websites dont know how they lock they just say "they just do", so if anyone can answer that as well that would be great.

I have black McGard SplineDrives. They torque in nicely and sit well. High quality stuff.

the rays are made by mcgards but this set also includes the valve stems and 4 locking lugs that are different from the splinedrive system.

I have both sets but use the reg mcgards /w locks for security reasons.

Actually, The RAYS nuts are made by Fujita in Japan.

In terms of use however, both Mcgards and the Rays nuts will function in the same way. The advantage of the RAYS is that they are much lighter over the Mcgards.

By the way, you can buy Fujita lug duralinium lug nuts from vendors on NASIOc and they are much cheaper than the RAYS version. Of course, there won't be any RAYS name engraved on them but who cares

wow - I probably should weigh them to see if the Rays are truly lighter. Does that mean Fujita manufactures for Mcgards?

Cost/performance, I think Zenki is probably the best nut out there. Had for over a year of hard use on the Wicked and they never failed me....
