Default Black Lug Nuts For Stock Rims
Spent about 30 minutes today talking to & comparing info with a tech from Gorilla Auto. Comparing measurements from my stock rim & lug nut with theirs, we came to the conclusion that they will work on the stock raptor rims. I ordered a complete lock set (#76604NBC) & will be trying them out when they get here. More to follow.

Love to get a set of locking black chrome ones like those!

Gorilla had previously told me that they did not have anything that would work on the 2012 rims, is this a new product? Hope they work!

Subscribed. Looking forward to hearing how they work out. I had Gorilla lugs on my old truck and liked them quite a bit.

From the pics they seem to be spline driven. Are they spline driven?

I have Gorilla Guard locks for mine, and this is the second set I am on. The chrome plating had surface rust on the first ones after only a couple months. These new ones I have had for about a month or so. Already starting to see surface rust. I'm doubtful they will last a couple years. If they do, they will be ugly and rusted. I'm still looking for new options on the locking lug nuts...

hosse, I read that the OEM stick out much further than the stock lug nuts. Do you know anything about this?
