Last I bought were GM S.S. covered lugnuts... they hold up OK, but I painted the uncovered base of them and you have to be careful to have a wrench squarely on them so you don't rip the S.S. covering off them...Fine at 20 for $20...

I run a tire & repair shop that does a bit of aftermarket wheels. I agree with using a major brand and using stainless instead of chrome.
Additionally use a fresh, perfectly clean socket. Hand install them or at least spin them on very slowly. This will reduce breaking down any finish, which leads to corrosion. And you will be far less likely to mark the lug pockets in the wheels too.

I just bought a set of these from Billet Specialties, and they are made by McGard??? I've always equated Billet Spec stuff as decent, I'll let you know in a couple of years how they hold up - lol.
Whatever you buy, make sure you have a spare or two in the car to guard against the Chinaman's revenge.

Most chromed nuts today are pretty poor compared to years ago. about the best today is Gorilla brand. Weld is also good, maybe McGard still is too?
If you really want to eliminate the corrosion issue, stainless is the better deal.
Gorilla and McGard.

Anyone know a good brand lug nut that can hold up from rusting out?
I bought some for my project truck and not even a full year they started rusting. Btw it hasn's seen the road since they were put on.
