Tuner Lug Nuts

Here's the dilemma...

I'm shopping for some tuner lug nuts to add some color to my wheels, or at least something other than black.

I'm mainly looking to stay in the color scheme of my car which is black, a tad bit of gunmetal/carbon fiber, silver, red, and orange.

Here's my wheels


Nice wheels but boring to look at sometimes.

Here's my car


Basically I would like to know, will Rays or Work lug nuts fit my wheels? I know we have to get 12x1.5 or whatever. Someone informed me that Rays lug nuts don't fit G-games wheels, and I was like "??" I need ideas as well as what color you think will look good and not too over the top but add some more color.

I really desire Rays lug nuts (prob not the extended kind but open-ended would work) but I don't know if they'll fit.

Here's other options I found...

Hey guys... I did a lot more research through google, and I have come to the conclusion that the wheels I have, G-games 77W have small "tuner" lug holes and require small "tuner" lug nuts, and Rays lug nut shape doesn't fit. I might just go with open-ended Muteki. They are supposedly of compact size, made to fit small holes.

What do you think of the red?

I saw Steve (icyaccord) is rocking some red ones, which look amazing, so I'm thinking red will spice up my wheels.

my work lugs require a 13/16 aka 21mm socket so see if one of those sockets fit in your wheels

Thanks, man, but I already bought some Mutekis, cause I didn't get your response till now. But this is good info for people that Rays lug nuts do not fit all Rays wheels.

Go with the red Muteki lug nuts, I think they'll add a bit of contrast to your wheels without looking out of place. Just be careful not to over-torque them, I ruined one set of them already.

Yep, that's what I did... thanks again for the ballasts btw!

The Muteki lugs were cheaper and have open end, so they should look pretty nice. It'd be nice to have more color.

I'll post a pic once I get em. I won't over-torque... my friend and I just use a torque wrench... no air tools.

I don't think red will work that well on your car's color/theme.

yea not all lug nuts fit all holes. and if u try to make em fit u can jam em and **** up the paint on the rim. those are really small holes and the rays lugs are quite big. but any skinny tuner lug will work. post pics when they are on.
