What Tuner Lugs do you Have?

What tuner lugs do you have? McGard, Gorilla, or some other brand? Do you have the locks also? How much did they cost?

Just wanted to get some feel for what people are paying for their tuner (lock) lugs. I have a set of 16 tuner lugs on my wheels already, but wanted to buy some locks. I recently saw 4 McGard locking lugs for $60 CAD (or about $37 USD). I also saw those McGard SplineDrive lugs, set of 16 including 4 locks for $120 CAD (or $74 USD).

Is it me or is that expensive for "lug nuts"?

I have the ICW chrome socket-lugs. They gave them to me for free when I bought my rims. Save your money untill you go to a BIG show like import shootout or carlisle... I got all of it...
4 18" Enkei RP08's
4 215/35/18 nitto tires
4 chrome stems
20 chrome socket lugs w/key
I got all that for $800 at the import shootout at MIR in MD last july
All I had to do was come home and have them mounted and balanced... $40 all
It was all still brand new still in saled boxes and plastic. And i got my type R wing for $125 at the same place that day. Trust me you cant beat it[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

I've got Gorilla's on mine. About $30 from JC Whitney. I got the red anodized ones. The anodize job on them is cheap as crap and is wearing off where the socket goes, but they sit so far in my wheels, all you can see is the tops, which have no wear.

I am using the McGard lugs on my car. I would have to say that they are the absolute best nuts I have ever used. They are tough, and they look great. Nice finish and everything.

i have gorilla, comes with 4 lock lugs, a key, registration number, and the other 12 lugs, looks chrome and it came with my wheels (1150 for 17" wrap in goodyear gs-d tires[comes on is300], rotated and balanced, really to put on, with the lugs too...)

one thing that makes me feel secure is that people can't get another key of the same registration unless they know my registration number

Are the colorless Gorilla lug nuts durable or is it just the colored ones that chip?

Bak: I took a look at JCWhitney's Web site and saw the Gorilla lugs there for about $30 like you said. I've e-mailed them, but just wondering if this is for all 16 lugs or what quantity? Seems sort of cheap for all 16 lugs, since I'm used to seeing $30 for just 4 McGard locking lugs!

klam - It's for all 16 lugs and the chrome ones should be really good quality. They anodized over the chrome is why mine are flaking off. Anodize does not stick good to slick surfaces like chrome without really sanding or acid treating the surface. I was looking at the McGard lugs that had the tips anodized red, but I'm not spending that kind of money for them.
