aluminum are a lot easier to strip and their life seem to be shorter.

I think theres a video somewhere with a GTR on Fuji speedway where the wheel flies off and the aluminum lug nuts sheared off the studs.

Hi everyone! Hope your all well.

I'm after a set of the above.just wondering if anyone might be able to help me. It seems to be a minefield out there with plenty of fakes on the market ranging in price from $50 - $200. Places that actually sell real ones seem to be few and far between!

Now I'm after a red set, shipped to the uk. I've seen that a genuine set will come in at around $400.00 ... Which is fine BUT I've been quoted as much as again to have them shipped over and $800 for wheel nuts is bit crazy.

Anyway - 2 things then. If anyone could point me in the direction of places where I canbe sure I'm not getting ripped off for fakes and if anyone could perhaps find somewhere that doesn't want to take me to the cleaners to ship over here, $50 - $100 in shipping is bearable, $200 to $400 is a bit silly :-)

Hope someone can help!

So are aftermarket lugs not acceptable for our 8's? I was thinking about getting some to make it look a little more cooler but most say not to use on stock rims. I looked around to try and find if the OEM lugs are the ball type or the conical type? Sorry for posting a year later
