Black Lug Nuts, where can I get them?

I looked on 4wheelparts online, nothing came up under their search feature, I tried a search here as well, but didn't find anything. So, I want to eventually get some black lugs to complete my all black look to my truck. Has anyone here bought any from a place they'dd recommend. I hear that McGard and Gorilla make them, are lugs just lugs, or is one brand better than another?

New pics of the ride will be coming soon, I promise.

see the problem with "black" lugs min you put a impact to it the paint would come off....and with anodized it would get scraped off

I can get you black lug nuts. or you can go to your local discount tire company. we have a lot of color lug nuts. mainly for the ricers but black would be cool. let me know if you can't get them, We can work something out to where you give me moolah and I'll send them to yuo...

Last time I checked, my nuts were the same color as my arm...and stuff. Kind-of a smaller version of my head, only different.

superGILDO, aren't discount tire co. and america's tire co. pretty much the same entity? I'm going to give them a call and see if they can dig some up for me. I appreciate the offer though, and if I can't get them through them, I'll contact ya.

Regarding the good ol' rattle can, like someone else said, i don't want the paint to chip and what not when having to remove the wheels to rotate the tires.

I actually saw some guy in a jeep when crossing the street one day and he had black rock crawlers with black lugs, and I asked him where he got them, and he said 4wheelparts. Maybe if I call them I might have some luck.

Thanks again everyone.

This was 5 years ago, but when i was in the tire business, only ones you could get besides chrome or silver where the red and blue ones, but those use a Alan Wrench style socket to go on and off.

Never seen anything other than that.

I called up SUMMIT on Friday and asked where I could get them, and they said both of their vendors discontinued sending them out to them.
