mate,

Japanese goodies on your car are a nice treat.

i've had plenty of different wheel nuts and to this day nothing beats my Work Wheel nuts. Cheap ones of eBay, yeah they look good this week, but the colour fades on them, ive seen them even break because they are a light cheap aluminum.

In regards to using lightweight aluminum wheels nuts i would only look at the good brands. And good Wheel nuts with locks are a lot less common for people to have the Lock socket unlike the cheapies.

Sorry its just my 2 cents, as by the time you buy 3 sets its the same price as a Jap brand

IMHO & it's all so subjective, but on black wheels and black car,....

1) Black is safe but stealth

2) Red is a powerful colour to match black but the RAYS ones can tend to fade into pink in the sun

3) Blue is also showy and girls luv it

4) Titanium is sophisticated

Personally i dont trust alluminium nuts and also how they all say to not use a rattle gun on them is a hassle. There are steel ones that are coloured i would go for them.

Love your explanation - actually makes a lot of sense. I never had Ray ones but heard that fade heaps.

Are those Nismo nuts and valve caps or did you put Nismo stickers on them. Never knew Nismo made wheel nuts. Love them!!

Has anyone had D1 Spec Jap wheel nuts? I am thinking of getting a set of blue ones. What you guys think? Any experience?

Personaly wouldent use aluminium to fasten anything unless its pop riviting something.

When u tighten them up wouldent the socket (correct size) scratch the flamin mongrel out of them making them look shit?

What wheel nuts you suggest to go on black Volk TE37 wheels on a black GTR?

McGard Splinedrive nut & lock set in black or maybe the red caps clicky.

Hardened steel, good pricing & they supply work, bbs, etc
