A few of us were discussing lugs on another thread and options for black rims so I thought I'd post a few pics of the ones I went with. I ordered these through my dealer at a cost of $59 CDN. These lugs are all locking which was a bonus for me as I was only interested in the color. The kit comes in many colors, includes the tool and also 4 valve stems.

They look good. You'll notice the wheels black gloss finish does not cover all the way to the edge of the stud opening. When you look straight on it gives the appearance of a silver ring around your lug. A small brush and some black rust paint will fix that right up! Takes a while but bothered me to see the ring so I did it.

Can you go over to my house and do this for me? :) LOL


I installed the black lug nuts and I have the same problem. :( By the way, I also installed a key lock in black as well.

Just put the Gorilla black wheel locks / lug nuts on my black split spoke Z51 rims today. I think it makes a big difference. My wife...eh. Here's a couple of photos. You can decide for yourself. I got these on Amazon. The full system for 20 locking lug nuts and the keyed removal tool was only $48. Amazon prime - free 2 day shipping. I kept waiting for the drone to deliver them to my house, but they came on a truck instead. LOL. I think Kate looks much more badass now.

Wonder how these black lug locks would look on a satin or chrome wheel ?

I would love to see black lug nuts on the machine face wheels.

I'll find out how it looks soon enough when my convertible gets delivered next month.
