Yeah, you go! I checked, I think Gorilla or the other brand ??? sells the black cone lugs, they look black chrome in the pics though. You need a thin walled socket also and NO ONE that I know makes a black locking lug to fit.

Cool, I'll have to check again. I'm running silver Pintlers now waiting on argents to arrive. I'll definitely check Gorilla again for the black kit.

I got the black powder coat spline nuts instead of the black chrome and they are crap. All rusty after one winter. My son bought bright chrome and they are also rusty but not as bad..

Marcus recommended the Pro Comps.

Need advice or parts without all the bs. Call Marcus at River City Offroad

IF you have a local Discount Tire you can walk in and get a set. The ones by me usually have them in stock for like $45 bucks.

However, IF you're in any part of the rust belt be prepared to be disappointed in them next spring. Chrome or black.... all turns to rust.

Lord, give me patience. I'm afraid that if you give me strength I'll need bail money too.

So the gorilla ones aren't rusting? I had to get the pro comps again, because the gorillas were backordered and I'm not looking forward to the rust. They are about half price, but I don't really give a shit cause I hate seeing rust. I mean I live in Arkansas for christ's sake, it might snow once a year

I have the gorillas. Buying actual monkey shit would have been money better spent.

Shittiest product I've put on any vehicle.

Buy something else...you will hate these.

They rust....fast

The spline socket was made with as much precision as a Yugo.

Have fun swapping a wheel on the trail with shitty lugs.

I take my rig in for tire rotation and the shop guys curse and swear at them as they take them on and off.

I paid $30 bucks for them and feel ripped off.

Seriously...I hate these things.
