    I have these and I love them. They grab way more thread than standard lugs, which on our trucks is important because of the notoriously short studs.

    And I bought them from wheelers and I was very happy with their customer service.

    You need 12 x 1.5

    The rim selection looks to be fine.

    OK, this might be a solution to my problem. I want to run a set of old school 16x8 KMC wheels, but they just barely hit my calipers when I try to mount them up. (Ground of about 1/16" of the caliper, but chickened out in going further.) If I were to use a couple of your 1/4" spacers with these extended thread lugs, I'd have about the same amount of thread to lug contact as stock.

    Is this sound thinking or do I just need to (finally!) ditch these wheels and move on?

    Any idea when those spline drive lugs will be available in black? I guess they don't need to be spline drive if there's a comparable lug in "traditional" style.

    No one makes extended thread lugs of any kind in black.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up. How long have black rims been popular now? And still no one has made them....

    Yeah, why is that anyway? Supply and demand I guess. Have to stick with the extended "standard" drive nuts in black I guess.

    I thought I'd seen some somewhere...maybe the were just the longer nuts vs the shorter and didn't have that "thread extension." I couldn't find them in a quick Google search....my bad.

    Oh, the longer lug nut won't do any good since the studs are so short. Longer lut nuts are for vehicles with really long studs.
