I bought these (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-754001B/).


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.

Nice, thanks dude!

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.
