Default "Best" = cheap & reliable "dark" lugnuts for grey/black wheels

Hi,

have already done a comprehensive search of this forum and visited www.subydude and www.jcwhitney but was wondering about best solution...

i just bought used OE 2005 WRX wheels - the gray, http://www.subaru.com/servlet/resear...command=photos , not silver color without lugnuts and am looking for either gray or black suitable lugnuts...

subaru parts says they only have chrome and while quality the www.subydude offerings are a bit expensive for what will be my winter wheels...

it seems like the Gorilla black lugnuts from JCWhitney for about $30 are best choice - or just use touch up paint on lugnuts once wheels are mounted and that should last winter...

does anyone know if there are OE lugnuts for that wheel or a better solution,

thanks,

tim

Gorilla is actually a quality brand of lugs. I had chrome ones for my Subzero's and had no issues with them at all.

They also come with a locking key FWIW.

Try www.oakos.com

They have Muteki for $45 in chrome, black, and silver.
They also have McGard for a little more.
