Is the SX4 lugnut size 12x1.25?

And would these fit the stock 17in wheels?

Open end:

And I noticed this diagram on one of the similar listings:

In your sig line, you say "OE wheels". Are yours 17" ??? Mine are only 16".

My lug-nuts are the Acorn Seat type and yes, they are 12x1.25.

When buying replacements, remember you'll need 20 of them. (five per wheel)

Ebay? No way! I'd feel more comfortable ordering car parts from reputable dealers.

Good Luck!
:cool:

Yeah, mine are the OEM 17in wheels. I have a Sport sedan..It would be an Acorn seat yes?

Well yeah, I need to buy a set but what I'm wondering is that will those lugnuts work on my wheels? Refer to the diagram.

Edit: I re-read your post. I shall order the lugnuts..I don't mind ordering form eBay. I'm not too worried about the quality. If it's bigger items, then I would order from an actual parts dealer.

Buy them at a local auto parts store for a buck or 2. I tried to get my dealer to change my fuzzy nuts under warranty but I had passed 12 months and they refused. They wanted 6$ for each nuts that don't last for shat. I bought a new set at a local parts store. Just don't be cocky like me and use them for winter. When I bolted on my winter rims and tires this winter I was just too lazy the get my old fuzzy Suzuki nuts out. Put the one I bought that were perfectly fine. They rusted within a month :(. Won't happen next time. Any good auto parts store have acorn nuts for cheap for our cars.

Well, I'm looking specifically for "tuner" lugnuts. Either open end or closed extended lugnuts.

I have the extra long lug nuts, bought at a local Auto Parts store. They started getting rusty in just a few months. I cleaned them off and applied a clear coat of lacquer and they looked great for a while and then started rusting again.
I may just clean them again and paint them black with RustOLeum paint. I won't waste any more money, by replacing them again.

I was looking at the extended lugnuts but were all OEM from other manufacturers. I'm ordering my nuts today (lol)

Wouldn't open end lugnuts rust the wheel studs? Open ended are good if one is planning to run wheel spacers so the threads are still engaged. Closed end would top out if I had spacers which I might be getting soon.,

Ahh ok. Thanks for the link, bro!

Are they open ended? They look like that in the pics. Wouldn't the wheel studs start to rust?
