Where are you guys getting lug nuts-cheap?

Okay, I need (32) 9/16-18 lug nuts. Discount and Big O want $2-2.50 per lug nut.

Where are you guys getting your lug nuts from? Stockton wheel says they sell most lug nut sets starting at $39.95. Any one use them?

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Sean

I just bought 32 lug nuts in the 9/16" size. The brand name is *Dorman*
and they're zinc plated, open style for $2.75/ea. That's the best deal I
could find locally. $88 + tax for lug nuts.

I just bought a bunch of nuts for 79 cents each at the local parts store. 1/2-20 only, but I cant see 9/16 being 3-4 times that.

I tried AutoZone, Checker and Napa.....they want $1.50 for open ended ones and $2.50 for closed.

That Summit deal is exactly what I'm looking for.....thanks Old Scout.

I have (32) 9/16 lug nuts from my old one ton setup. They are the extra long chrome lug nuts. They are in good shape and a few have some of the chrome peeling on them. Cost me $40 new. If you are interested let me know. I can ship today.

I used to buy mine from summit, but now I buy them from just tires. SOmething lik $15-20 for a set of 24 for my 4runner.

also, I agree with pick and pull. Cheap there, and alot of the time, they are new lug nuts.

I needed 9/16" shank style lugs for my old school slotted mag wheels and got some at Pepboys for really cheap (way cheaper than kragen, autozone etc...) it was like $7.99 for a pack of 8.....

Just proves that the lug nuts on my Jeep are worth more than your whole Scout.



I vote for PnP myself, unless you got a thing for chrome...I will admit to having chrome lug nuts on one of my rigs

Real race cars dont have chrome lug nuts or center caps.

Never buy anything from stockton wheel.... Our prayers are with you if you try. Search if you want history.

Don't you guys have an automotive swap meet up there? I buy lug nuts at the Pomona or Long Beach auto swaps and they're pretty cheap. There's always a lug nut guy there.

Go to pick and pull, look on the ground around your truck section-they gotta be cheap if you pay for them, if you don't, that is why you pay an admission fee in the first place

stockton wheel sucks a fat one...i will never buy anything there again...i ordered a set of beadlocks from them...they were about 6 weeks late on finishing them so truck sat with no wheels and tires for 2 months ...then they kept breakin bolts like crazy...on the street i would loose one bolt about every 10 miles...offroad...it was a freekin joke..seemed like every 5 feet i would have to replace a bolt or 2..
they finaly gave me a new set of wheels non bead lock...My dad went to school with the owner and thats the only reason they got me new wheels...otherwise they would have told me to get bent ...but for lug nuts...just get em from napa..

I bought mine from a car show that was here recently, lots of vendors. Got mine for $1 each. What sucks though is that I got 31 9/16" nuts and one stupid metric nut. Should've checked them all before I left. Shotgun style lug nuts

Well, I just ordered 32 of them from National Tire and Wheel....$0.95 each.

Not too bad a price I guess.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
