It's not too bad. Definitely take your time and measure twice. If you ever want to remove it, then you just buy new bed caps which are inexpensive.

17x8.5 +06 but that wheel is disco'd in the cast version. Only the forged true beadlocks are still built for that style (Fuel Rotor)

Did the short gorilla lug nuts fit?
I need to buy a set of lug nuts.

If you are interested in Gorilla there are two options (these part numbers are for black)
  • Gorilla 26144BC are the proper size (14x1.5) and have a smaller diameter that fit nearly all aftermarket wheels we have, however they are 2" long and this length isn't necessary for most wheels.
  • Gorilla 26148SBC is the same nut but in a shorter length. Unfortunately I don't think they come in a kit and must be purchased individually. I found them for $65 they look great, and will be the perfect length on many of our wheels.

Also, a bit of caution. I initially purchased the RRW VS1 lug nuts attempting to save a little bit of money. These lug nuts are of VERY poor quality, however RRW Customer Service was great and took care of me. The powder coating on the VS1 chip if you look at them wrong. I was able to do damage with my fingernail. If that isn't bad enough the thread quality is poor and you can feel how rough they are hand threading them on. Also had one nut sheer itself in half at 120 ft/lb. Had tightened them all by hand, pulled my torque wrench out and was torquing everything to 120 before going all they way to 150 ft/lb. Entire head twisted off and split the nut. Luckily I only pooped my pants when it happened, but it damaged my torque wrench as it let go very violently and I smacked the garage floor with the wrench. Instant refund, and RRW was great, but I wouldn't trust these nuts and it cost me a brand new torque wrench.

Yes the work just fine and look much better in my opinion... A little more expensive though. I'm running them on a set Icon Alloy's

Do you happen to have the product number for the key?
Never mind I found the correct one. I accidentally ordered the wrong size.
