I got mine for my Supra at this site. Since they specialize in Fords, double check part number with McGard before ordering. Their prices seem to be the best, but they don't keep many in stock, so you might have to wait a few days for them to receive from McGard.

Be careful and good luck.

Ray,

What size did you get? McGard recommended 12 x 1.25 which I don't see on the SP Motorsports site.

Thanks

Hm, sorry Neil. I bought mine for the Supra, and it used 5 lugs 12x1.5. Didn't know it's 12x1.25 for Subarus. There are a few other online places, as well as Autozone, I believe, that will order for you. But they usually run around $95.

Good luck.

I ordered the 12 x 1.25 size that McGard recommended. I pulled a lug off of my WRX and it only had a depth of 1" so I figure the 1.25 is a safe bet. 1.5 would look too tall. I paid 91.70 delivered for the whole kit..

Holy Crap you paid almost $100 for lug nuts?

I didn't expect they would be that much!

"LUG NUTS" Thats all I have to say.

The kit comes with the spline lug nuts, weight matched wheel locks, chrome valve stems, and the tools for the lugs. I didn't think that was a bad price..

For reference the numbers are not quite what you think they are. It's 12mm (width of the inside of the nut) x 1.25mm (thread pitch). The length is usually found elsewhere. If you where to get 12 x 1.50, the thread pitch would be wrong and you would damage the threads.

Pretty good price you get, Neil. Yeah, $100 for a set of lug nuts sounds expensive, but if you have one of those "tuner" wheels that has a small, round access to the lug nut, your only other choice are those "open box" nuts. Discount tires gave me those before, and in less than 2 years, they were totally rusted out. Luckily, I got them off safely and quickly; but imagine and parts and labor you're going to spend if just one nut seized.
