Red Tuner Lugs?

What do you guys think? I have a Silver Celica. The tails are redded out with red Celica fill ins and of course the red GTS badge. Calipers will be painted red. I want to get colored lugs. What do you think about red ones? I have stock GTS rims BTW.

I was going to get some black ones but you can barely notice the diff.

Nice. So where can I get some, what brands, and would I need to know anything else or are they pretty much universal?

Thanks guys.

Those are nice. I saw some exactly like that on Ebay for $90 shipped. A bit pricey aren't they.

I was wondering, is it possible to paint just the top portion of our stock lugs? What kind of paint will stick nicely? Prolly tons of clear coat also.

^^^ rays are nice, but a little more expensive than splinedrive. i think i got mine from summit racing for pretty cheap, like less than 90 bucks. good thing about splinedrive are that they have a washer built into them so you won't tear up the paint when tightening the lug nut. thumbsup

Rays is exspensive and they are the only company that make Red Lugs, except for
Gorilla Automotive Products. Gorilla makes red and they're much cheaper then Rays, just not lightweght. Rays are lightweight lugs and Gorilla are standard 60 Gram weight. You can find them at www.gorilla-auto.com.

This is the third lug they have that fits the Celi. They should only cost you around $29.00 for all 20 lugs.

If you want Light-Weight Muteki Lugnuts, you can get them through Evasive motorsports. I bought my Muteki Black Lugnuts through Evasive and received them in two days, maybe because they're right down the street from me pretty much. Evasive is a good company to buy from, you can trust them (Good People).

The Muteki only come in Black or Anodized Blue. These Muteki lugs weigh 36grams compaired to stock, which are 60grams of weight. It takes 454grams to make a 1 pound, so you will only be eliminating a little over a pound of weight for all 20 lugs put together. You will not notice a major difference, but they will look good. The Muteki are like $15 dollers more then Gorilla lugs. The Gorilla lugs are the same quality of material, but are 60grams instead of 36grams, so it's your choice.

Not familiar with those shops. Where are they located? And which sets do they have and for how much? I might just purchase those Gorilla ones in black instead. They are pretty damn cheap.
