    What is so wrong with those alloy/Aluminum lug nuts? I have some on my car..so much easier to deal with & light weight.....but For those who feel the need to shave the weight off...hehe. I just remembered Porsche utilizes them on a lot of their vehicles also...So if they are good enough for Porsche its good enough for the FiST.Also I NEVER EVER EVER USE and impact to tighten lug nuts. I spin them on by hand....Then I ALWAYS USE A TORQUE WRENCH with appropriate setting

    SAME HERE, just with forged steel lug nuts. :)

    To me, the weight (or the cost savings over forged(?) 6AL4V titanium, IF I were going for weight), is just NOT worth the slight weight savings in the CENTER of the wheel, where it means the LEAST, and the strength difference (yup, even for the supposedly 'forged' aluminum alloys).

    Bwahahaha!

    I've had them on for just over a year now. They are in pretty bad shape, most likely from discount tire and firestone using an impact on them.

    I will be looking for something new. I'm not worried about locks or special key sockets. They don't work anyway and if someone wants my stock wheels they can have them.

    What's the problem with the spline drive ones (besides aesthetics, which I'm okay with)?

    I've had the provided socket split open on me on two separate occassions. I forget what brand they were but I've sworn off splines since then.

    i finally got bit by this last night when doing my flaps and just ordered the black chrome McGards. they're not sooo bad so I still got the lugs back on but not waiting for it to get worse.

    Yeah, I'd be nervous torquing aluminum lug nuts to 100ft-lbs

    Never had an issue....just don't use a IMPACT GUN to put them on. and TORQUE WRENCH to set them...like I stated above. If Porsche uses them...if they are good enough to go on a 100k+ vehicle and are used right there shouldn't be an issue.

    I use an impact but mine is adjustable. I set it to 2nd of 5 settings then torque with a wrench to 80. No need to go to 100. Or maybe it's time to finally read the owners manual
