I've had the red Gorilla lugs and the color chipped off so easy it was ridiculous. The gold ones appear to be the same kind of finish, so I'm guessing they would do the same. I'd look for something anodized.Ah, I get it. It's aluminium in general that's at issue here, not the quality of the material, construction or the brand? Okay, who's a good make of steel lug nuts who also do them in gold, especially with the points on the end? One thing I'm not interested in are open ended lug nuts.
UPDATE: I've just found that Gorilla do make their lug nuts in gold! Damn, they are so sexy, and would go great on my Tangerine Scream! Wonder why CJ doesn't stock them, especially since the Tangerine Scream ST is so popular?
I like the Gorilla ones, but are there alternatives, especially sporting the aforementioned bullet or missile like spikes on the end?
