    Ive recently just been contacted by 4wheelparts, they stated my ProComp lug nuts have been recalled. Im not sure the reasoning but, they are giving me a refund once i send the defective ones back.

    The problem is, before I send them back, I need to find a replacement set for my now recalled ProComp lugs. They have to be ET lug nuts (due to the lug centric methods) and they can't be acorn lug nuts because of the size of the methods holes don't allow a socket to fit. They have to be splined like the ProComps were.

    That brings me to my question! What lug nuts are you running on your methods!? besides the ones pictured that are recalled.

    Boom. That's it. Thanks @Clay7160

    I'm not sure. I've never checked. The way the center caps fit in from behind lead me to believe centering rings wouldn't work well. @nv529

    Neither have I, they've been fine for me.

    I'm just gonna purchase new ones, then swap them out when I rotate my tires next time.

    Sounds like a plan. Give SCS they may help out with some good nuts. That's what I'm going to do if I get this letter. But like you they need to refund me if they are going to do that.

    does that mean they are centered, or does that mean they stick out more?

    Not sure with 3rd gens. But they helped my first gen fit 33"s. The tires are exactly flush to the flares.
