Check out my nuts!

Decided I wanted to do a stud conversion with a little spin. I wanted a good quality closed ended lug nut, and the best I found were the spline drives from McGard. These are essentially the same lug nuts that are BBS branded. For a little customization, I had them laser etched! Check it out.

Gotta thank the guys at OC Engraving they did a great job with this and in very quick time too. Anyone that wants to have a set of these made or some similar work, I highly recommend them.

Must've been painful getting your nuts laser engraved.

They do look awesome, though!

Those are some nice nuts! A lot of people may covet your nuts and possibly try to pull them off if you find yourself parked in a dark alley way or parking garage so I'd be careful!

Yeah you'll need either 44mm (no spacer) or 57mm studs. The 57's are nice because with these particular nuts you can go with no spacer all the way to a 15mm spacer and it still works.
