Thanks for the advice guys! I'm not too worried on the looks since I'm gonna be covering them up.
Do you guys know the thread size for an 06? I think I got the 12mm by 1.5 but I can't remember and I threw all the old packaging away.

There is no problem with running name-brand aluminum lug nuts. The problems that occur come from people that don't use anti-seize and use impact tools on them. When installed properly they work just as good on a non-RACECAR.
I have Godspeed 50mm nuts for my aftermarket wheels and the luck nut is seven-sided and keyed. Usually you can pick a brand that you like and find multiple sizes in the thread pitch that you need. Research the brands that you are considering as a whole and then narrow it down to the length you're looking for.
Here's a picture of my nuts -

I use and recommend Gorilla brand lugs.
I also agree to the above; don't buy cheap aluminum lug nuts. Hardened steel only.
Open end lug nuts just look weird to me, but to each their own.

Gorilla Automotive 21132HT Small Diameter Acorn Chrome 4 Lug Kit
I did order an extra key after I got them, but both keys still work great and I havent lost either of them yet

most of the ones on this page will be fine. reputable vendor too
stay away from the Mutekis though, I've heard they're crap. and I'd never use aluminum lugs either... though that's a personal preference. and if you're afraid of rusty wheel studs, don't get open ended lugs
EDIT: just read that you're running a cover over them... not sure about length in that case. at least rust won't be an issue

I use gorilla brand on my focus. great customer service too. I had to have the key replaced last year. I gave them the key number off the side and within three weeks got another shipped in from cali.
I will gladly use them again when I get wheels for my mazda.

I like the Gorilla Brand. Had them on my Contour SVT, and a new black set of 20 locking for my Focus.
ANY wheel lock can be taken off by a smart thief. No question there. The crooks you can stop are the casual idiot.
No problem stopping those sorts with Gorilla locks. Nice that all 20 are locking. And they look nice.

|odd3010||Gorilla or McGard are going to be better than most. If you tighten them on by hand and take your time they won't rust. Its when you take them to the shop and they use the impact guns that cause a lot of damage to the lugs. The good thing about the black ones is that you can easily touch them up.|

|mikebontoft||I admit I'm not sure what is a good brand. don't get the locking ones that are just straight ribs.... they come off with just a 6 point socket! If someone really wants your wheels.. they'll get them.|
