Lug nut recommendation for 2010 Coupe

I was at the dealer getting my oil changed and was going to have my wheels rotated but was told my lug nuts are swollen. I purchased my OEM wheels and wanted to replace the lug nuts when I replace the wheels anyway so what should I buy and from where? anyone had to purchase new lug nuts?

Check out your local parts store. Dorman makes a line of replacements. You can also get them without that chrome cover that bulges - for much cheaper than a dealer.

Thank you for responding I feel like this is the only forum I'm on that no one responds. All I'm looking for is lug nuts that will work with my factory wheels is Dorman a decent brand?

Lug nuts are lug nuts. As long as you get the right style (conical/acorn style in your case) and get steel ones not aluminum.

Dorman makes many aftermarket parts.

When I got mine they came in a 4 pack. The 4 pack was cheaper than 1 at the dealer.

So they style on my factory 17" is considered Acorn?

Yes. Where it meets the wheel is shaped like a cone.

I called Dorman and spoke with one of the techs he told me that the ones in the link will fit even though the online calculator says it doesn't

I used the Dorman 611-182 and they are listed to fit.

The ones you showed originally have the same problematic cover.
