    So I just painted my stockers black and not liking the chrome lug nuts. Is there a cheap place I can get some black lug nuts without breaking the bank? I noticed mine has a washer, should I be looking for a set that has washers?

    Thanks! I don't mind buying online or buying from a local store if they are priced right.

    You need the ones with washers, that's what holds the rims on. Acorns won't do it. I paid $8 a piece at an auto parts store to replace some. You may be able to find some ebay colored ones or somewhere else for cheaper. If you paint, or everybodys favorite, plasti dip, you'll have to do it after they're torqued or else you'll marr the finish. I imagine plasti dip would be the easiest and most economical, but would have to be redone every time you take the wheel off if the finish get's messed up. You could do it temporarily til you find inexpensive colored ones. Good luck
