Red face lug nuts

Help guys, just picked up a 2014 Granturismo and want to change out the lugs to gloss black. Any ideas who carry them? Thanks

We do have Ceramic Black Coated Factory Lug Bolts for the GT, they aren't listed on our website but they are available since we've had customers that have requested them. In short, if you want black bolts on the GT you have 2 options... Paint them Black (likely just spray paint), it will chip off eventually but it's a cheap way forward... or use something like a Black Ceramic Coating, it's not cheap but it's the most durable.

Be careful putting them in without scratching, same goes for taking them off but Black just isn't a durable coating (in general) for something that takes a socket with 90 lb feet of torque to take on and off. So it's either go cheap and keep up to date with the finish or spend money on a better coating.

In any case, feel free to reach out by phone or email and we'll be happy to help!

After you paint or coat the lug bolts, something like this might come in handy.... $30 or so @ Harbor Freight. At $10 or $15 for 1 socket plus shipping, you might as well just get the set....
