    summit sells just about every style lug nut you could want
    www.summitracing.com

    or just go to a junkyard and look around, you can easily find some that will paint up nicely for $0.25 ea or so

    they usually take alot of the wheels off trucks at p+p's around here, but if you look in the beds of the pickups there are usually lug nuts scattered around. You can usually fit a handleful or two into your pockets also :) which is a lot better than paying autozone 5 bucks or so for a couple lug nuts... if you're not sure if they're the right size, just find a similar truck to yours and screw em on and see if they fit...

    How many more do you need?

    Most parts stores have them but the wingnuts at the counter usually can't find them.

    I've got a bunch in my nut bucket :grin: I'll send you as many as you need for the price of postage.


    :D

    Unless he has mag wheels........

    Take one of your wheels and/or one of the nuts you have to a local tire shop that way they can make sure you get the nut the right size and seat. If you are running aluminum wheels and you get a nut with the wrong seat it can snap the stud and damage the wheel. If you have steel wheels you can put almost anything on and be OK. :D

    surely autozone isn't the only parts store around ?

    I've had to go to 2 differant stores before to get enough lug nuts to go all the way around.
