    I'm looking for a solid chrome or polished aluminum lug nut to replace the OEM's that I have rounded. I'm looking for good quality lug nuts that won't rust.

    Thanks

    Thanks, here is the problem w/the OEM. I like the look but the aluminum gets rounded. So I was thinking a solid lug-nut maybe chrome.

    I believe they are chrome. :notsure: They are from a 2013 offroad edition of that helps or makes a difference.

    Wtf are you talking about? Our lug nuts are not aluminum and maybe you should try using a 21mm socket if you're having problems rounding them. I've had my wheels off probably 100 times and my lug nuts are still in great shape other than being dirty.

    I was thinking of getting gorilla lug nuts I want the one piece design these two piece ones tend to warp and get water under them in winter which causes big problems... Anyone have any suggestions on what ones work best with the oem wheels ?
