    Hi all, I want to replace the oem lug nuts and want to have some that are all steel and not with the kind of thin "cap" that are now all distorted... can someone tell me if those lug nuts are full steel please?

    I also looked at them

    Thanks!

    I'm looking for the same thing, same problem, caps are in bad shape. Both links look like they are solid metal to me, but your guess is as good as mint.

    I asked the seller about the black ones and he sais they are full steel so I ordered them. They will look good on my black dip rim lol I would have like to have the chrome one but they are longer and don't know if it would looks good on stock toyota rims. I like long lug on "taper" style

    I actually paid > $100 for a set of McGard lugnuts and locks once. :anonymous: Lugnuts are rather critcal for safety, though, so I don't mind spending good money on them.

    Yeah but wasn't very sure about the hex head. The whole nut can be forged steel with the crappy cap on top and I don't think the seller would say it in the description that you will mess the half of your nut trying to loosen them off lol

    Finally received my nuts, bought from the first link. They are full steel, no cheap caps on it. Feels solid. Glad to have ordered them.

    Don't forget to check your lug wrench will fit the new ones.
