WTB Chrome Lugs

I am looking to buy a set of chrome lugs to replace the Steel (unrefined looking) lugs on my chrome wheels. Wheels are the OE 17". Anybody have any ideas?

Here is a photo of the ones I put on my '97:



A little closer up:



I bought them from maxspeed-motorsports.com, here: http://www.maxspeed-motorsports.com/suspensionparts.html

Thanks for the lead. I was trying to avoid the $250 pricetag . Looks as if I will either have to pay it or deal with the set I currently have. Seems like alot to pay to keep the stock wheels. Thanks for the lead.

I agree that they are a little steep, but I looked and looked and searched and could not find any other source that compares with the quality of these.

Once you get these, you should also "invest" in an aluminum 19mm socket or a rubber lined 19mm socket so as not to mar them while installing/removing the wheels. No air tools either.

Regards, Maurice.

Great idea on the rubber lined socket. I will look into that. I would also recommend that you put the rubber lined socket in with your spare tire so if you have to have a tire serviced you have a socket that the repair shop can use without damaging your lugs.
