I am planning on getting some teflon coated mojaves and run mcgard lug nuts. They are chome plated but have a lifetime guarantee against rust or chips.

I put em on and took em off with an impact with a standard socket and never even scratched em. Great buy in my opinion.

80 big ones for a set of those suckers. Very nice though! I might consider those next time. Made in the usa, cant beat it. To the OP, McGard did have some black ones but I don't think any fit our truck. Only problem I see with them is that even with one go around with the air gun, any little scratch will show because of black lugs and bright silver showing through. Just a thought.
