Lug Nuts

I am switching my 15" ranger edge rims for the fx4 spoke rims. What kind of lug nut does the fx4 rim run? Where can I get them? Thanks.

When you broke those, did you install how the instructions specifically state to do it? Always torque the regular lug nuts first, and leave the locking lug nut for last. Opposite for removal... take the locking one off first before you loosen then rest of them.
Also, not saying you did, but those locking lugs don't like impacts! If the McGards do happen to break, they have a lifetime warranty.
