Well, being I will be getting Alcoas soon, I want some decent chrome lugnuts to go with it. I was going to put chrome covers over the nuts lug nuts, but it seems this may be a pointless endeavor. Any recommendations?

This may help you a bit, they aren't the typical locking nuts, though.

those are the exact lugs and locks i have on my truck. the reason i like gorillas is because they dont strip out as easily as the dealer locks. of course you want to order chrome ones instead of the black ones in the link.

i didn't get locking nuts, simply because i lose things a lot....and i don't want to lose the key to the locks......

it cost me like $50 for the complete set of nuts.....they are guaranteed for life not to rust, peal or chip the chrome off....
