For one, what size of lugs should i be looking for as replacements. It doesn't say in the manual. and then, where can you find the blue after market (key) lug nuts, that are blue. Only not the crappy electric blue, the darker blue that would be almost identical to the eternal blue. I am rockin the 2000 si wheels atm, and i want to see how they look if i get them polished, rewrapped, and get some of the blue lugs on em'.
Think it will look good or not? Oppinions welcome, and info much needed. Thanks

12 x 1.5
im also wondering about the darker blue lugs for my wheels, the light blue lugs wont match my centercaps or lettering on my wheels

but says they are temporarily sold out. >.>. There is some more somewhere i am sure.

better color, but damn. Price is rough.

bump. Need oppinions on color of wheel lugs. For 2000 silver si wheels, on an eternal blue 03 ex.
Silver (keep stock ones)
Cant envision if it will look good or not. For some reason i think the deep red will look on the car, even though the only thing red is the tails. A dark blue would make sense, just worried it will look funky.

i thought you cant use .. tuner lugs on oem wheels.
01-21-2008, 01:13 PM
you cant use rays lugs for stock wheels can you?
01-21-2008, 01:26 PM
i thought you cant .. cuz it might rip the inside of your wheel whole..
01-21-2008, 05:14 PM
so your saying that you can't use after market lugs with oem wheels? I didn't think it mattered as long as the thread pitch was the same. But i don't know. Can anyone verify?

You're not suppose to run tuner lungs on OEM wheels. It has to do with the seating area of the lugs vs the wheel. This link explains it well http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread/1188922
Again you're not suppose to use them but I know people who have done it with no problems. I personally wouldn't do it tho.

yea your not supposed to use tuner lugs on oem wheels because of the cone shape at the end of the lug but i used them on my fat fives and i didnt have problem

sry to thread jack but i just purchased new lugs for rims i just bought and the actual size of the lug is to big for the hole so any ideas? and i first checked by trying to fit oem lugs on them and they didnt fit either. lmk thanks :myhijacked2:

01-21-2008, 08:53 PM

hm, thanks for the link man. very interesting. I guess i was dumb to think that there is not a complicated way about picking lugs to besides thread pitch haha. So in theory, if they aren't specified as "tuner lugs" i should have no problem.
they say they meet or exceed factory, don't specify for tuner. Just kind of better lugs for your stock wheels kind of thing. The color is perfect almost as well. They don't have a key, and aren't lighter. But i guess for the si wheels its not that big of a deal by any means.
