Default Budget Aluminum Lugs

www.ezaccessory.com

16 m12x1.50 lugs with priority 2 day shipping for 32 bucks.

The have black, blue, red, and gold. The price was right at 1.50 a piece. We are building my sister a budget track miata and this was all I was going to splurge on her. Well I ordered Wednesday afternoon and got them Monday. They are nicer than I expected but not a nice as Emilio's 949racing lugs. I have the two side by side.

The part that takes the socket is about 1/3 longer, they weigh the same, cheaper powder coating, shorter where the lug seats on the wheel, thinner tube. For the price they are a bargin, if you have the cash buy Emilio's.

Bound to be better than the autozone cheapies that I used on the last car with my 6UL's. Be a nice upgrade for my new wheels.

How much were the autozone ones? I didn't know they sold aluminum lugs.

They weren't. They were cheapo steel ones. It was all that I could find locally that would fit my Sportmaxx counterbores and I carried them over to the 6UL's when I got them.

The big question is... how strong are they. How many cycles of use will they last. Etc...
