    I just switched out my new bolts on one of wheels. They fit well and look good. See pics ... new and old.

    Going to order some from Amazon myself now, same ones as shamrock249 and travman.

    Took my front wheels off to inspect my Powerstop crossdrilled and slotted rotors and ceramic pads since they were squeaking a little - they were just dirty/dusty, plenty of pad material left surprisingly - point being is the lug bolts were a little messed up, had to use a rubber mallet to put on the 19mm lug wrench to get them loose.

    So now it's my turn for new lug studs. (Yaay) went to rotate tires and half of them didn't want too hear it. I checked a few y'all suggested and went on CARIDs site and found some chrome ones I liked but they don't have a full set in stock. (Sorry carid) So I'm asking y'all for some links or suggestions for some chrome ones that you've found and are happy with? Appreciate the help....thanks!

    I usually put anti-seize on mine as well, though I've read that you should not as the the tightening torque spec is for dry threads. I've never had one come loose though, when tightened to the spec, and never had one that was difficult to remove either.

    I had my lug bolts shipped to my US address in Lewiston NY and my brother picked them up for me yesterday. I won't get them until my next trip down to visit him in about a month or two from now.

    When I was shopping for replacement lug nuts for my Jeep Liberty at a Dodge/Chrysler dealership they showed me the Mopar exact replacements (very pricy) and an equivalent Mopar lug nut (much more affordable).

    Apparently the claim was dismissed by the courts.
