i am going to look around and see if we make some one piece stainless capped lug nuts that look good. the 2 piece lugs are a nuisance. lol we are trying to get more business from G.M. to replace the plastic caps they use.

Hope this is not off post too much, but how do you clean down in those socket wholes when you wash your wheels......I have stock rims and they are a pain to get in that tight spot and get it cleaned and shiny.

They look great! Those are a definite if you have any chrome rims that show the lugs.

Another reason why I love my swoopies.

My 95 has one piece chrome caps. Why aren't they being used anymore? I think they are longer than the black ones on my 02 and probably would stick out. I haven't tried one on it to see though.
