macdiesel This is why I bought mcgards.





Guess which ones are the gorillas. Mcgards still look like new.

macdiesel People buy gorillas because they are cheap. I tossed mine when they started to rust. My mcgards are garuanteed, have a built in washer to prevent damaging wheels. And I believe they make regular lug nuts without keys to take off.

Sorry if their quality isn't the greatest, I didn't feel like pulling my dslr out so I just snapped them with my iPhone.

I finally found somewhere to get Plastidip locally, I didn't think anybody would have it, but the chrome on the grille is now black. I am debating about using it on the white that separates the center from the two triangle inserts but am not sure about my masking capabilities; Also a friend is trying to talk me into dipping my wheels. While washing the car yesterday I found a chip about the size of the tip of my finger on the right rear rim, it stands out pretty badly when I walk around the car, but of course I will see those little things. The rims on his rsx are dipped and look great, so it has me debating!

lstat Just to update:

I did a little research on the Mcgard lug nuts and found a lot of people are buying Gorilla lugs instead. I purchased a brand new unopened set of acorn locking lugs from Gorilla on eBay for $34 shipped. They work and look great! Definitely a little more shallow than the stock lugs but they do exactly what I wanted. I am very pleased in the end

I could have swore I read somewhere they didnt make anything but locking lugs that took a key to remove, I will check them out, thanks!

replacement lug nuts

I did a quick search and didn't find anything, but does anybody know where to find black lug nuts for the 2013 Focus?

I was looking at the $32 sets at Auto Zone but upon comparison to a stock lug nobody was sure if they will even fit, and I am no fan of needing a key to go with them for removal. A few of the guys told me they paint their own lug nuts, so I tried it. Three coats of paint and three coats of clear coat later I am left unhappy with the way they turned out. I want black lug nuts but I would absolutely love to find somebody that sells a stock style.

Anybody have any ideas?
