Yes, you read that right - I'm getting new nuts! :woohoo:

The sexy nuts I wanted were out of stock just about everywhere, but I managed to buy some off Amazon. I paid too much for my new nuts, but what the heck - they're black and 56 year old guys get all teary-eyed over this stuff. :tissue:

My new nuts are supposed to arrive next week via UPS - I sure hope the UPS driver treats them gently. I figured I needed new nuts for WBM and I will post pics of them as soon as I'm wearing 'em. :discomonkey:

Always!

Chris, they are black McGard spline nuts. The chromies I've had forever are getting pretty shabby, even if no one ever looks at them any more.
My red nuts are starting to get a little mangy, too, especially after the tire shop used their air wrench on them. :shake:

Phew, for a second I thought they were the kind that dangle from your bumper!

How much? These nuts might be in the "bling" category, but they do serve a purpose than just sitting there and look pretty. I've wasted all kinds of money on craptastic nonsense all the time, so these McGards are worthy of indulgence, even if you paid full price, IMO.

I have the black set also. Mine's been on the vehicle for a little over 3 years now, and still look new. I picked them up from Ebay, including the key, for $64 shipped.

If they start to turn blue consult with your significant other or a physician. :huh:

It's always best to use your spare nuts if you're going to let other men handle them.

Be sure to add a tad of white grease to your studs....you don't want the inside of your nuts to be dry.

Yeah, unfortunately, I got the new guy. Usually they tighten my nuts by hand. Now my red nuts have scratches and gouges on them.

Has anyone ever painted their nuts?
