Just wondering if people like the 2014's lug nuts

Sorry just looking to see a thread about the 2014s that don't involve the back of the car. I don't know what else can be said about it. I know I've beaten the dead horse myself on that topic.


Sorry back on topic. I really like the lug nuts on the 2014s myself.

I think the 2014 lug nuts are horrible, just plain hideous! How could GM go and ruin a perfectly fine car by changing the lug nuts? They should have consulted with Camaro5 first!

Oh the horror....

Yes, I do find the lug nuts to be quite a nice view on the 2014s. Just like much of the car itself.

Sorry back on topic. I really like the lug nuts on the 2014s myself.
The lug nuts look a semi shade different from front to back, so I am not going to buy the car.

I wish that GM would offer color keyed lug nuts to match the car. I honestly don't know what GM is thinking sometimes. I mean really, chrome only option on lug nuts?

GM really took a step backward with those lug nuts.... god what are they thinking?

IMO they look way to similar to Honda lug nuts.... next thing you know a riced out civic is going to pull up next to me, point at my lug nuts and then give me a thumbs up... GM you make me sick

They totally stole those lug nuts from the Prelude. GM thought nobody would notice but these Camaro5 members don't let anything get by them.

I don't really care for the lug nuts too much

They look too European to me. Nothing Camaro-like about those lug nuts

The Lug Nuts are fine! It's the size of the metal flake they used in the paint for 2014 line that makes me wonder WTH they were thinking.

I would think that starting a thread about it would only make it worse, you know like a little fire on a flame.

The aftermarket is full of lug nuts.........but you're right the 2014's could've been better. Clearly not a well thought out design.

'14 lugnuts suck...What were they thinking? Don't like them at all. I'm keeping mine, they are better in every way.
