Default Lug Nuts

I'd like a second set of lug nuts like the ones I have now.

Anyone know where I can get them and what size to get?

Looks like the factory wheel and lug nut. So I would say a Chevy dealer. One of the forum sponsors (Fred Beans, etc.) will actually sell them without a huge markup also. Am I missing something?

Post a Wanted thread over in the C5 For Sale section. I'm sure there are plenty of Z06 owners that have replaced their stock rims and lug nuts.

Those are not stock. Here is a complete set of similar lug nuts including locks for a decent price:

What makes you say that? At some point (I believe '03) Chevy replaced the plastic lug covers with all metal lug nuts like the ones in his picture. That link that you showed looks like a good buy.

I stand corrected, I did not know that they switched from the external threaded lugs with plastic caps. SORRY ! :o

I bet my link is a lot cheaper than GM or even Fred Beans.

That's a great price, but I don't have time to mess around with locking lugs at the track. I just need a set of straight-forward lugs.
