    Looking for some new lug nuts. It seems like my 12 year old factory lug nuts with the beauty covers are finally beginning to swell. I would like to replace them soon before they become too much of a pita. It's a 6 lug just looking for some good durable lug nuts that won't swell like these.IMG_20201014_175110.jpg

    I second gorilla. I’ve had their ET lug nuts for long time and they treat me well.

    I like the gorilla too. The spline drive lugs are awesome but it’s sort of like having a wheel lock in that you have to have an adapter socket.

    I got gorilla lug nuts from @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc awhile back and I got great customer service and a deal at the the time that was very competitive to internet prices :thumbsup: (cheapest I found at that time) YMMV

    (no not being paid for this , just my experience and I’m passing on a good word for them )


    Edit : deal was they had a promo or something at the time when I bought mine and it brought the price down cheaper than other sites prices

    Thank you all for the suggestions! I will definitely be looking into the gorilla lugs!
