I just bought some new wheels from Discount Tire. They sold me the splined Gorilla nuts with the wheels. They originally sent the wrong color lug nuts with my wheels. Chrome instead of black, for my black wheels. They only charge $35 for a set of them and they come in sets of 24. I seem to recall it was 2 bags of 12, So I have spares. They finally sent me the correct ones (black, so rather than returning the wrong chrome ones, I just paid another $35 for them, as like many others, my stockers were toast. I think the previous owner used visegrips to remove and install them. LOVE the spline, although you need to keep the tool in your car (I have 2 now, as 1 tool comes with each set).

Those look correct!

I tried to offer that seller $5 less than asking and he refused, so I kind of didn't want to buy them based on principle!

Cross-referencing the part number shows these measurements:



Cliff notes: here are the gorilla part numbers for OEM wheels (large base)

Chrome 1.62" length - 66148DX
Black 1.62" length - 66148BDX

Random I tried $15, $10 and $5 less than his asking price and all got rejected lol. So don't worry, he just has it set where it automatically rejects unless it's his asking price.

I should have gotten them on Ebay but I was too quick on the draw and ordered from amazon, oh well. They should be at my house today.

kinda annoyed the fronts will stick out more than the rears though as I thought they were the same size and length as OEM. Gorilla told me on the phone the black ones the dealer sells are made by them so I assumed they were the same size.

Part 66148BDX:

Virtually identical to OEM (they are even sleeved). Will pull an OEM lug tomorrow for pics:

(Tuner lug is on the right for comparison)

Boom.





Excuse the purple sharpie...

On OEM wheels vs stock:
Fronts stick out slightly more...


Rears are perfect.

Good info guys! While they do stick out just a bit more in the front they still look MUCH better then the chrome with the black wheels. The average person will not even notice the difference!

FYI found out today that $66.00 is the lowest they'll except.
