I have them on my CTSV with Finspeed rims and Raptor with HRE's (why not, I ruined the truck anyway) They will make just about anything.
Jesus!! For the price of a set, they should come with rims and tires.

Never gave my nuts that much thought. These look great though and I'm going to order some up for my project. Thank you!

Last time the shop had to buy titanium lugnuts, they were for a Porsche; $29 each 15 years ago. Never knew Gorilla made HD lugnuts! Their regular stuff seems to gall either on the rim or the stud. I'd like to find a reasonable set of thru-hardened nuts like what McGard makes. Doesn't seem to do much good for others, no matter what their construction is, if they're only case-hardened on the outside, leaving the threads soft.

Thanks for all the tips!

I'm just about to order new wheels soon and like the open Gorilla set. I've been happy with Gorilla in all the past years. Even used them back in the early and mid 90's on my college cars when I had cheap cast wheels. LOL!!
