I’ve looked at running aluminum ones for weight savings, but not sure how durable they are. There are titanium options too, but they are $$$$. the only lugs I’ve run is stock and aftermarket steel acorn style.
I think those are the ones I was looking at. Where do you buy them? Have the threads held up? I always use a torque wrench and tighten to 47 lb ft, but have wondered if the threads get bunged up from taking them on and off.
Have used a few sets of ITP lugs, and a couple AMS sets. The chrome ones usually hold up pretty good, but I’ve had a few sets of black that start to rust in not too long. I just really like the idea of aluminum lugs because they are so much lighter. Just seems like one area that you could easily drop some weight for not much money, plus it’s rotational and unsprung weight on the rear and unsprung weight on the front which is always a bonus. I’m not a big Amazon fan, but I’ll keep looking and see if I can come across them elsewhere.
I was referring to the steel, closed, flat lugs that would be the equivalent of the aluminum flat base that you have pictured. And I’m not saying it’s a ton of weight, but weight is dropped in lots of small areas, not necessarily one big single thing.
