Default stock lug nuts

Anyone have a good lead on where to buy stock lug nuts for 2007 w/17" wheels (in my sig)?

Walmart f'd all of my lug nuts up then put some replacement ones one that were rusting the NEXT day!

thanks

I do not recommend the stock lug nuts. They are steel nuts with a cheap aluminum cover. If the lug wrench slips a little, or the nut is too tight, they will separate. Then you have to drive a socket on them with a hammer to reshape and remove them. They left me stranded on the side of the road in the rain. Get a good quality aftermarket lug nut and sleep better knowing you once less thing to go wrong.

Thanks, I read similar stories thru the search function. My stock lug nuts were on since the car was brand new in 07. I rotated the tires at least 10-13 times with no issues with the stock lug nuts. The main reason I liked them, is that they do not rust...even after 6 years. Anyone got any recommendations for lug nuts that do not rust? A link is much appreciated.
thanks,
jd

Thanks, anyone running these on their car? I'd like to know exactly which ones you are running.

I am running the black version of these, and the black is not chipped at all. My dad uses the chrome ones on all of his cars and he is satisfied with them. They don't get marred or anything after dozens of uses.

My Enkei wheels came with some small chrome spline ones.....total crap. Ordered some black Gorilla acorns via amazon.com Way better and a great price.
