    I bought these.

    Just in case the link doesn't work, here's the info:

    Summit Racing Lug Nuts #SUM-754001B
    12mm x 1.5RH
    Conical Seat @60°
    1.4" Long
    13/16" Wrench Size
    Black Chrome Finish

    I've had them for about a year and they've held up great. And at ≈$5 for a set of four, you're looking at $30 plus shipping for the entire car; totally worth it.

    Have you used an impact on them? If so, how have they held up? I bought some cheap ones on ebay and the paint was chipped up after the first impact use. I'm thinking I would have to get anodized ones.

    I ended up getting a set at pep boys...about $30 for all of them including lock nuts. They definitely get scratched up from wrenching on them, but you can't really notice the way they tuck into the wheel. As long as the rounded stays black they work fine for me.

    Black chrome is definitely the way to go, holds up much better than black painted. I have black McGard Splinedrives on all 3 of my cars and they look great, even after a few years of use and lots of wheel/tire/brake changes for track events. The McGards are also nice and thin, so if you have a wheel with tight lug nut pockets (like the Rota Torques) you're less likely to ding the sides of the pockets with a socket.
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...
