Arrow What kind of lug nuts are there in the world...?

I have the standard chrome ones that came on my bbs wheels and wheel locks... I've seen lots of pictures of people using the Rays lugnuts that are blue and they look pretty good... The price sucks being $100+ for lugnuts..

Just wondering what types of lugnuts there are out there that we can use on our wheels and the different colors... I was thinking of getting blue just to have some contrast against the gold wheels..

Thanks,
-Nigel

Just make sure that the bevel of the lug nut fits the bevel of the wheel where the nut and wheel touch. I put Rotas on my car (for winter) and bought the spline nuts with the integral bearing (that means that the contacting surface of the nut stays still against the wheel as the nut rotates while tightening) from Subiedude.com. After researching on NASIOC I found that some after market wheels have a different bevel than the stock BBS wheel that came with my car. So you just need to make sure that the nut you use matches the bevel angle of the wheel...

What lug nuts will work with the stock bbs sti wheels? I really want a color of other than black or chrome... Blue, red... I don't know.. I think blue would look cool with the gold wheels....

Yeah, very true! I learned the hard way!
