I just did my every 3 months brake pad inspection/replacement,
and the stock lug nuts with the plastic caps on my factory saw blade wheels on my 1996 vette are rusted, crappy junk IM ashamed to have NEAR my vette,:lookinup:
anyone found nice QUALITY,chrome lug nuts that work and stand up to repeated use without scaring & flaking chrome due to use???

yeah! I know!
theres damn few QUALITY parts out there!
well I CAN DREAM!

IF SNAP-ON, MATCO, and EVEN CRAFTSMAN
can BUILD SOCKETS that GET used DAILY where the CHROME doesn,t flake off nearly INTSANTLY ON THE FIRST USE,
YOU might THINK a LUG NUT could be built that way,since theres no moving parts, and its LOW TECH!

Grumpy,
I had chrome wheels put on my '84 and went with stainless steel. Ok, so they're not chrome but they look real good. No rust and they do shine up with a little elbow grease.

Good luck

I use Tuner Lugs, which all require a special socket. The chrome probably still sucks, but the fact that they give you a special tool to install them makes marring them a little more difficult.
