    currently running the chrome lug nuts and thinking of switching to the black ones.
    the chrome ones are a bit longer than the black and stick out more. Pictured on my wheels/tires

    Still rocking the stock height.
    I think the black ones look better on the black wheels. That's what I plan to run when I order my black wheels.

    I think it depends on the wheel. I'd the wheel itself is black with chrome accents, chrome lugs would look good. if it's an all black wheel....black lugs would look best

    Black or chrome with those black wheels. I like some contrast over just a solid color and the chrome bolts with the chrome lug nuts looks sharp

    A little of this and a little of that.
    I would do black on an all black wheel but if you have chrome accents then leave ‘em chrome.

    I have color lugs on both our 4Runner Pro and Tundra Pro. I love them. Pretty cheap too.

    If you have a locking lug nut, you'll need to order an extra set one size smaller than what they have on the site. Great customer service and fast shipping.

    Welcome. I ordered the wrong size the first time. They were to big. They sent me out the right size on their dime right away. Great customer service.

    Depends on the wheel for sure....Easy choice here and went with chrome lugs since the outer ring has chrome accents on gunmetal wheels. No mismatched socks. :thumbsup:
