good lugnuts please!

Could anyone direct me to a good set of lugnuts?
I bought some from the local Murray's store and the caps are rusted and falling off after a year... what a freaking waste. I like the length of the stockers, the ones from Murray's stick out too far- it looks dumb.

McGard are good so are Gorilla's (least cost). Muteki is very good as well and very light weight if you're interested in that sort of thing. Just be careful when ordering, some Muteki's are open ended which some people don't like or need (good for racing). They do have closed end ones.

if you want non locking lug nuts then AutoZone sells a set on aisle 2 that come with 16 one-piece stainless nuts (all we need) and 4 ugly ass locking nuts you can throw away haha. I use those for my race wheels.

Part number is: 711-341 and they are in the correct M12x1.5 thread.

Thanks a lot for responding to such a simple thing! Where do I find McGard's or Muteki's? what stores sell them? I just saw Gorilla lugnuts today at Murrays...pretty sure that's not what I have now but not 100%

Ebay for the Muteki's. Summit Racing, Jeg's, or J.C. Whitney carried Mcgard's as well as lot of other places.

I used the Gorilla lugnuts from Murray's when I had my Neon. I wasn't very happy with them, they seemed to dig into the aluminum rim too much. They were too soft or not smooth or something. Try New Five Auto in Livonia, they may have something decent. PM me if you don't know where they are.

Ah another former Neon owner brought over to the Focus side lol. I am guessing you modded the piss out of the Neon as well? I think I dumped too much money in that damn thing only to see it die a quick deat at the hands of my cousin once I sold it to him. I definately miss that car. It was a very reliable turd. lol But back on subject now. I have always gone with Gorilla nuts and haven't had any problem out of them. Just never used the locking lugs though. Always seemed like a waste of time. If someone really wanted the wheels that bad the locking lugs would only slow them down by 5 more seconds anyways.
