    New Nuts! (Lug Nuts of course..)

    So, I come across a YouTube vid about a guy replacing the lug nuts on his truck. He had the same dumb tin clad nuts that we have.. I have destroyed a few of them in the past and just replaced with more of the dumb things... At a cost of something $10 each from the dealer..

    Anyway, I check out Amazon and find these from DP-Accessories. Solid steel, no stupid tin cover. Whole set of 24 was $105.

    So, my next tire rotation, I'll be putting these babies on.. That will probably be this weekend!

    The Mcgards don't have the large bulge like the OEM's do. If you're running the stock wheels it is advisable to use the large bulge, so it'll make contact with 100% of the surface area of the Ford wheels' cone.

    The Gorillas are fine, and they come in black as well.

    I got a set of 24 for $40 from discount tire. They are really good quality. Go and see what they say. I also may get some new wheels soon so I could send you mine for a cheap price.
