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.
