Dumb question - but, are you guys torquing the Gorrilla lugs to the 110 ft-lbs listed in the manual, something different, or just as tight as you can? Wondering if the different finish means a different torque than the stock chrome lugs should be used.

Great idea. I think I can make that happen.

Great, thanks! One more question. I put the Gorilla lugs on today, fresh out of the box. The original lugs were lightly coated, maybe with an anti-gallant. They also came off well below the 110 ft-lb spec. Should the black Gorilla lugs also be coated or is it ok to install as-is... assuming threads are clean, dry, etc?

Got them on. Look good. Fast service!

Ordered a second key. I have lost mine before. This time I am accounting for stupid.

+1 on the USMC shirt maybe with some mods.

I just wanted to say I've had zero problems with these and they are cheap insurance for our expensive wheels, lest someone decides they like them enough to try and steal them. Since I live in an apartment they were mandatory IMO...

Do you need a whole set of 20?
Do they sell just a 4 pack of OEM Chrome to swap out one lug to lock up the wheel that way?
