Default seeking lug nuts - not spline, not 7-sided

Want something different than stock that still usess a standard 6-sided socket. I'm sick of messing with keys/adapter tools, so no spline-drive style. Everything I have found that isn't spline-drive is heptagonal/7-sided and still requires a special tool.

Try Subydude's lightweight lug nuts. I forget what they're made of, but they are very light and you can get them in black which I think is nice. www.subydude.com

Hope this helps!

The Zenkis are standard 19mm hex forged aluminum. Other than the fact that they can fade a bit, they're fine. Of course do not allow a shop to touch them, like any aluminum nut they can jam in an impact socket.

....what you describe can NOT be 'locking', by definition.....no 'key' = no lock

If you EVER let any shop 'do' your non-steel lugs, you will have them destroyed.

understood... another way to put it - I want one socket between my torque wrench and the lug nut, period. Not concerned about theft so locks are unnecessary.

Thanks for the suggestions and warnings about keeping them out of the hands of torque happy shop monkeys.
