I just bought these wheels also, are your lug nuts black chrome or are they the stock ones? I love your car. I have been looking and looking for a IOM car with these wheels. Nice job!

Thanks Man1acs! They are the stock lugnuts. They add a nice break-up of the black chrome. Still waiting on my black chrome center caps to arrive though.
