Anyone want to recommend a brand of lug nuts that lasted and didn't corrode out.

I think we all agree that the OEM lugs nuts dont look nice toot long.

What about the Dealer Accessory 990B0-27004 Chrome Lug Nut and Lock set, SWT 16 Piece, Black

Dealer eventually replaced the corroding stockers on our '08 with those black chrome ones. They've been holding up great....look as good as they did 3 years ago when they were put on.

***Edit*** Schumie....wrong kit p/n? not enough lugnuts? Could be a typo on dealerfit.... I'll have to look at the RO to see what p/n kit dealer installed on ours.

I like 3 years over the 9-12 months the stock ones looked descent for. Thanks for reply.

I've had a number of sets of Gorilla Lugs without issue.

I've had my 2010 Sportback now for over a year and half and have had no problems or issues with my stock lugs. The winters in IL are pretty brutal and they lay a lot of salt on the roads but I have not had any corrosion or pitting with my OEM lugs.

My 2006 H2 SUT had tons of pitting and corrosion on the rims and lugs and I had to get the OEM rims and lugs replaced twice by the dealership! Gotta love GM quality!

Checked RO from lug nut replacement in 2008 and it states they replaced (20) of the corroded lug nuts p/n 09159-12051 with (1) 990B0-27004

which is the 21 pc SWT black chrome lug nut set w/ locks seen here: http://www.sx4club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1997&page=2&highlight=corroded

2010 accessory brochure I have lists two sets of black chrome lug nuts (with the Suzuki "S" on them in place of the "SWT":

21 pc Lug and Lock Set 990B0-27010
Lug Nut Set w/o Lock 990B0-27011

There are none listed in the 2011 accessory brochure.
