Had to "slum" it in the RS for the first real snowfall of the season.
The caps that round off can be removed by using a small chisel or screwdriver and hammer to pierce the center. The solid part of the lug nut underneath is hollow in the middle. After piercing the cover, use a pair of dykes to twist it off. It will take a little work to remove it. An 18mm socket will then fit.Just purchased my 2017 ST2 with 30k miles. Did the oil change with Mobil 1.
Attempted to rotate the tires when I found 2 rounded off lugs. I purchased some black gorilla lugs and I am wating for those to arrive. I will most likely take it into a tire shop to have them take off the lugs unless anyone else has a trick to getting them off?
Nice. I’m doing the same thing. Just went to rotate my tires yesterday and found two rounded off lugs. Garbage. Purchased a gorilla set in black.Replaced the garbage stock lugnuts. 28k miles on the car and those lugnuts have only ever been removed by me and have never seen an impact gun... and they were still beginning to fail. Terrible design.
Went with some black Gorilla 1 piece nuts which went on perfectly. I kind of like the different look too.
