    I did my center caps on my FJ wheels the same way. The chrome lug nuts look good with them that way too.

    Hmmmm, I like the chrome lugs, but I already ordered the blacks (which is an upgrade anyway). Those wheels look real good though.

    Looks great! Just for shits and giggles try putting the chrome lug nuts on one wheel and ask three people their opinion as to which looks better, with the chrome lugs or the black.

    Do the chrome lugs, super sexy.

    Also, you got balls for leaving a truck on jackstands sittin on just dirt o_O
    At the very least I would have put some 2x6's under the stands so they wouldnt sink

    Haha they were fine on the jack stands, it was gravel and the ground wasn't soft so it was ok. I do like the chrome lugs, but I like black better. Plus those oem lugs have that stupid plastic covering, despise those.
