Rays color lugs on stock rims

Hi everyone. I have a pearl white base lude with stock rims. I want to put some rays red, blue or purple lugs on but the site says that they don't fit stock rims. Why don't they? Any ideas or suggestions? I can't afford anything more than the rays.
Thanks!

edit: I have learned that I should not attempt to use the Rays on stock rims. Are there any color lugs I can use on stock rims? I can't afford more than $150.

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

Firstly, why do you need to change the lug nuts?

Secondly the bottom of the nut (where it meets the rim) has a different design on aftermarket rims to what is offered on our stock rims. There's a technical term for it that I can't remember right now, but that's the gist of it.

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

Thanks for the replies.

I don't need new lugs but I have a white lude and I just want to add some color. I thought that some purple lugs would do the trick. I want rims but all my money is going to other parts that will allow me to drive again.

Does anybody know of any purple lugs that will correctly fit the stock rims? Under $150.

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

I work on cars every day and do tires every day. DO NOT USE LUGS MADE FOR AFTER MARKET WHEELS ON STOCK WHEELS. Nuff said. Yes i was yelling to get that into your head.

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

I'm pretty sure you can buy stock-ish Acorn lugs in different colors...try E-Bay. Might not be the best quality though.

yep there are all kinds of colors for stock lug nuts, how about this you choose a color and ill go buy some stock lugs for your car and some spray paint and paint them what ever color you want and only charge you 100$!!!


really man, even the exspensive anodized lugs lose their color after a while, so why go through the hassle? if you want colored lug nuts just pull yours off and spary paint them, it will cost what? 6$ for a can of paint

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

hmmmmm..., spray paint. Interesting. I'll search to see if anyone's done that and how it looks. I like the look of the anodized aluminum and I don't think I can get that from spray paint. Can I?

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

With the amount of time people spend staring up close to your lug nuts, does it matter?

Re: Rays color lugs on stock rims

If I like ricey then I like ricey. I don't know why you should care. Oh..., wait you have to look at it too. Sorry, I wont spray my entire rim. I wanted to so badly though.

I want purple lugs on my car because I think they would look nice. "I" being the key word in that sentence. I like to chill at different places, drinking beers, listening to music while staring at my lude. One day it dawned on me that my car was really white and needed some color. Since purple is my favorite color (no, I am not gay. Not that there is anything wrong with being gay.), I thought that purple lugs would add a subtle touch of color.
