Wink black lug nuts

gorilla automotive makes black lug nuts. check with them online to find your closest vendor

when installing, put a sandwich bag over the lug, and then slide a six point socket over the top to protect the finish

lug nuts

those will work fine, make sure to run down by hand, then hand torque with
a baggie over the nut to prevent finish from coming off-tire baron

lug nuts

yes they will work with brad's wheels, he can get them for you - cardinal rule:
never, never put heavy lubricant on wheel studs with closed end nuts...clean
and dry threads only otherwise torque will be altered - tire baron
