lug nut question

Which is the (stock?) lug nut that goes with the LR Freestyle wheels? Is there one out there that matches?

Ok, you can bring on the jokes now.

Is that a LR standard? Best place to buy (cheap/quick/quality)?

I just replaced all of my lug nuts as the old ones were boogered up from someone using the wrong size socket on them. (1 1/8 instead of 27mm)
I got them from LA Wheel and Tire. They also have the RRC solid lug nuts. They arrived quickly, but 4 of the 20 had damaged covers. I sent them an email and they sent out 4 new ones.

LN3550F is the stock D90 style
LN3550 is the solid RRC style

LA Wheel looks good. What am I looking for as far as quality construction?

Would you ever buy something like these off ebay?

You're right. Chrome would be silly. Just trying to find the balance between price and quality. Dealer wants over $20 per nut here in SF. fleaBay version is about $4/nut.

These are looking better and better:

The quality of the the ones I got was very good. Every one of the old lug nuts I took off had loose caps. The replacements were very solid and look exactly like stock.

Ah, I see... those are nuts with caps? How ugly are the ones without caps? Anyone have/willing to sell some?
