    Does anyone make black lugnuts for our trucks? I contemplated painting but I am sure the first time a wrench touches them the paint would not hold up

    I looked for a while for black lugs for the sport 17's and couldn't find any. So I just painted mine with the same wheel paint I used on the rims. After the TSB I need to touch up the rear and after I get an alignment Tues. I'll touch up the front.

    I haven't ordered them so I'm not sure, but the price is listed as each, so maybe that's how they are ordered. Give them a call tomorrow, they have a extremely helpful staff.

    I would assume only one locking lug since that all that would be needed to hold it on securely against a thief. As in he could take the rest off, but wouldn't get the wheel because of the one locked in place

    Plus i think you would need 6 sets if you wanted all of yours to lock since they come in a package of 4

    Waste of money. The first few times of taking the lug off, the black coating is ruined.

    I never personally ran a set by my boss has a set on his Dodge 1500 RAM and they look like crap...I buy my tires in town so I get them rotated every 3000 miles and my chrome ones don't even hold up...I can't imagine the black coating holding up to well.

    Just paint the ones that you have now. You can always touch them up. I painted mine when I changed wheels and they looked fine after being put back on with an impact gun.
