Monster Lug Nuts perfect for VMRs, ForgeStars, Beyern, TSWs and more!

Maverick Man Carbon is now a Master Distributor for Monster Lugs!







Looking for lugs nuts for your GTO. With high offset wheels that people often put on their GTOs usually mean a flat faced type wheel.

However Monster Lugs will fit all other after market wheels as well. These lugs are also open ended which are perfect for those whom race and are required to have open end lugs.

Other options in color are Chrome, Red, Blue and Silver.



Wheel locks are available also inquire within.

How do the finishes hold up? I've seen many nice looking lugs chip once a socket was used and also seen red lugs turn pink after time
True! +1 for THIS question.

MavMan I wish you had these in DEC when I paid $60 for some crappy ones :(

every lug over time doesn't look like new. use a impact gun you're going to get scratches. but then again you should be using an impact on your aftermarket wheels either. ;)

i use personally both the Black and Chrome Titanium on my other vehicles. They have been off more then a few times and yes they do have scratches just like any other lug would form a socket. cheap sockets will leave more marks (less tolerance). i also had both of these on my cars for over a year now and no fading.

as far as the red your are specifically asking about i have seen that happen not in these lugs but in others as you speak about. however the most culprit is the sun. any anodizing can fade over time with the suns UV.

Any pictures of a silver set? Do they match the OEM 18s well? Hate the cover over the cheap OEM lugs.
these do not come in silver. they do come in chrome though. however i do not have a photo of the chrome ones yet. i'll try to take a photo of one.

as far as matching what do you mean? these are totally a different style of lug nut then the stock one.

i doubt anyone here would have these on their cars. this lug style is very new.

It was in your original post that silver was an option? Look below in bold. I understand they are a different style, I was asking if the silver lug was close at all to the silver color of stock 18s.

Yes those I thought you were talking about he new 35 type. But yes they are very close. They are a flat sliver like the OE lug covers
