Trying to find a website with a good amount of options. I need a set of lug bolts that look good but don't have any plating on the threads, as I've heard that causes issues with maintaining torque specs after a few hundred miles of driving. Are there any options out there?

I would need a set of extended lug bolts to accommodate for 20mm spacers and a set for OEM size/length.

You could get H&R bolts. I believe they are zinc-plated for corrosion resistance, as are most good-quality bolts.

A little pricey for 4.95 a bolt though. $50 for 10 and then I would need 10 more up front :O

Any other options?

I got a set of 55mm from ECSTuning and they were junk. Went on eBay and ordered a set of 60mm from a random seller with good score and they're golden! Haven't had any issues with them (have had them on for about 1k miles)

Are they from a specific brand? Will have to check ebay later. Stock lug bolts are 28mm right?

All of our bolts are from RAD, made in Germany. Highest quality bolts offered. They're Geomet coated for corrosion protection, and each and every single individual bolt is load tested for strength.
You will not find a higher quality bolt anywhere.

If you're paying retail for anything, you're not shopping around and negotiating enough. It just takes 5 minutes on the Internet and a phone call or two to get a good price.

I'd prefer stock length bolts in something other than black. But you've got good pricing

I've searched around for those bolts. Still out of my range :/

The set of lug bolts I got from ECS have been fine for 2 years with no loss of torque or issues with the threads. Also they were a steal compared to the local dealership asking $8 per bolt.

I've had my 15mm & 17.5mm ECS spacers and lugs on for about 2 years. I frequently remove my wheels and have never had one backing out or anything. No complaints here.

Why ordering 2 different sets of bolts when you can just order 1 wheel stud kit to work with both setups?

I have a 30mm spacer in the back and a 20mm up front. The 30 takes stock bolts since its kind of like an adaptor.
