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.

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 -

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.
