i have tenzo shu 4 rims, and i have stock lug nuts (new ones from autozone)

i use a deep socket 13/16 socket to undo my rims without scratching the walls of the rim/lug nuts hole. i refuse to pay all that extra money and shit for something that says "tuner" on it...

When i bought my wheels, they came with "tuner lugs." The stock lugs would not set into the wheels, the were too big. Plus, the "tuner lugs" need a special "tuner key" to get them off, so it makes them harder to steal.

You win pointless post of the year....

I think what they mean by tuner lugs are the smaller lugs. There are some rims that the lug holes are alot smaller then the fat ones on the b14..

yea! but sad to say it depends on what honda he is talking about...........unless it is a civic you are talking about (a car compairable to the 1.6L 200) than please shut your mouth

you can find those "tunner lugs" on ebay, many i have seen stick out kinda far and look really stupid.

When I got my rims, I had to buy new lug nuts because the old ones woundn't fit, (as mentioned above.) I went through two different sets, because the lugs didn't fit well enough on the studs. Pep Boys finally found some though and put those on.

Bottom line: Apparently, it was hard to find the right size of lugnuts for my Sentra, and I imagine it might be the same for you. Make sure they go on tight and that they maintain the 82-whatever lbs/ft of torque over 100 or so miles. Otherwise your wheels will come off.

There was a mention of length above, you should have the same or greater thread length on the stud as the dia. So 12 mm stud with 1.25 pitch would have to have about 10 turns. 1.5 mm pitch about 8 turns.
My tuner nuts provided by Discount tire are Ok, but the studs are short for the thick wheel flange.
Good Luck.....

my wheels came with the tuner lugs, I like them because you can't get my wheels off without the key which makes very hard to steal.

I also got the lugs from Discount tire, they are a smaller diameter than the stock lugs. They are the spline type, and I got a key for them. Now I don't worry about scraping the paint off the rims when removing the lugs. I drove around for a week with no problems, now the car is in the shop for some body work. Once I get it back, I'll check the torque on the lugs.....

I have black lightweight openended spline drive tuner lugs. Very good set IMHO. Made by muteki. Do not get kyokugen lug nuts, theyre pretty weak and have an even shittier key. Make sure you get m12x1.25. Certain aftermarket wheels have smaller wells, so you need smaller lug nuts(tuner lug nuts).

lol, I was laughing becuase he drives the 1.6 which puts down an amazing 90 pound feet of torque....my v6 tl puts down more like 200....
