So i did a search already, no awnsers i am looking for, i just got some new RSL Mase rims, i go to put them on my car, and find out the lug nuts don.t fit in the holes, so i go to auto zone, and Advanced auto, no luck, Does anyone have RSL MASE rims??? if so, where did you get your lug nuts from?? this is the only thing keeping me from getting my rims on my car!!!!

you need tuner lugs....call around at some auto stores and ask specifically if they carry tuner lugs
worst-case, you can order them online. here's a place that showed up on google for tuner lugs: http://www.justforwheels.com/index.jsp?Make=FORD&Model=FOCUS&Year=2000-on&sub=lugresults&cat=lugsandlocks

Thank you!!! I am just going to order them off that site, one thing, I thought i read in one of the threads that you shouldn't use open ended lug nuts. i will probably need open ended, because i have a cover to put on after i put the lug nuts on, so they have to be short.

open ended threads let moisture and crud accumulate on the ends of the lug bolts
I would try my best to get closed-ended....let me take a pic of mine for you...just a sec

it will have a cover on it, i was also going to put some corrosion preventive stuff on it to seal the end, so they don't rust. i just dont want to buy these and have the cover not fit, you know what i am saying? Do the open ended lug nuts have a tendency to crack? just wondering. oh, and one other thing, i was looking on that site you posted, do you think these are worth getting? Hubcentric rings (http://www.justforwheels.com/index.jsp?cat=hubcentric&sub=how)

here are mine.....excuse the disgusting dirt and rust, they have had a rough winter.
you can see that they stick out past my rim maybe a 1/4"

as for the hubcentric rings, yes I recommend getting them. This means that your wheels are balanced/centered on the car using the hub, not the lug bolts. This is how our car was designed. You shouldn't have to pay more than 20 bucks for them, though, so don't overpay.

If you have a Discount Tire near you, they'll sell you a lug set and wheel install stuff for $39.
Make sure you get the lug key too.
