what lugs nuts to buy

Hi All,

I'm a noob here, just over a week of owning a Focus ST. I have some Ford racing 5 star wheels on the way and would like to buy a quality set of lug nuts. I want them to also have a locking lug on each wheel, be black to match the wheels, possibly blue to match or come close to the PB color of the car. again I want quality lugs that will hold up by not rusting or color peeling off and doing what their intended to do, hold the wheels on. From what I've read I want steel lugs not aluminum.
It looks like I need 12mm x 1.50 RH Conical seat - 60 degree, if it's different let me know.
are there specific brands to stay clear of and are there preferred brands. Where to buy is always a plus.


I saw a vender here that sells so many that I could even begin to guess which ones are quality and which are not.

thanks in advance, 1fastang

Mcgards will fit your need. Might look better with splined lugs instead on of one locking nut.

after following the link and looking around, I have more questions. How do I know for certain what I need as the sites seem to not show 2013 Ford Focus ST, not to mention I'm going to be changing wheels so does one wheel differ from another. the link shows under application Ford Focus 2000-2007, 12mm x 1.5
13/16'' Hex Size. when on jegs site the cutoff in the year they supply for is 2010.

I went to McGards web site and fr 2013 it only shows Jeep.

I need a break, my brain hurts.

I checked with Jegs via email. they were very quick in responding with help. The link you gave me for the McGard 65357BK is the right one and there's a set which includes 16 lugs, 4 locking lugs, a socket for both kinds of lugs and a pouch to hold the sockets 65557BK.

Thanks again, 1fastang
