Need help with Chrome Lug nuts

Hello, I drive a 2001 Boxster, I replaced the stock wheels with a set of used OEM Chrome wheels. Currently I'm using the old lug nuts looking to purchase a set of chrome nuts.

Very confusing, many sizes to choose from. Can anyone tell me what I need.

I would like the head of the nut to fit flush with the wheel and the thread of the lug be the proper length so this big wheel is secure.


thanks

Oh any recommendation where to purchase them?

I bought mine at LA Wheel, they did the chroming as well, they are a perfect fit and replacement. If Jennifer still works there she will hook you up.

Don't waste your time with chrome plated lugs. Eventually they'll corrode and look crappy just like the stock lugs. I got a set of stainless lugs from these guys and they're great. They can be polished to be virtually indistinguishable from chrome.

And if you don't want to blow $250 and set of lugs...just have your old ones powder coated. Less than $50 bucks.

I just painted my originals with a rattle can but, my wheels are semi flat black. $250 for lug nuts...no thanks. But that's just me, to each their own.

These are only $150 and they look the same except they're not polished.
