I have those too. I painted my wheels black, and I was afraid of the normal style lug spinning the paint off. Since the bottom spins free from the key, paint stayed in perfect shape.

Hard decision.
Do i want the alloy nuts that 949racing is selling or do I want some mcgard spline nuts. Both are nice. The alloys are cheaper. The splines are better, heavier, safer theft wise.
Where do you buy your nuts magna, mine haven't dropped yet?

Options: Alloys, Alloys with one lock nut, all splines, spline with a lock nut.
I've never had wheels stolen but as nice and $$ as the 6ULs are, i really don't want to experience that either.
