Black or chrome lug nuts

I just bought a set of pro comp 7069. They are flat black and are going on a red jk with no Chrome its all red and black. I can't find any flat black lug nuts. Should I use black (gloss) or chrome lug nuts?

'tis your jeep but I would go with black lugs. The chrome will stick out like a sore thumb and draw attention to them instead of the wheel.

I went with chrome, but I feel like mine might tie in better because of the aluminum ring on my beadlock.

If I could find some flat black lug nuts it would be a no-brainer but all I can really find is the gorilla black lug nuts and they seem to be gloss black from the pics. I may call around and see what I can find

Personally I'd go with black.

I have the gorilla lugs....crappy product.

If you're worried about the gloss factor...give it a few months, they'll rust and look like shit soon enough.

The splined socket you get with them will ensure that the black comes off soon enough.
