They fit. They work. I have 30,000 miles on a set. But they don't fill out the lug hole. Kneel down, or from a distance, and you'll be able to see a ring of unpainted silver in the back of the lug hole. They're skinny. I kind of like the skinny.

Those will hold the wheel on but they are not the correct part, or as safe as an OE size lug. The seat does not completely mate with the bearing surface. That'd be the part that matters. If you can see that shiny ring, the seat, that's the surface area you wheel attachment point has lost that used to provide the friction that kept your kids and or passengers safe. Now you'll have an equally small worry about slip as well as punch through, or resilience in small impacts. There is less seat area and more pressure on the area being used at the lower end of the seat which is thinner. Will it fail, not likely, but is it closer to failure, yes. Close is not good enough when it comes to certain things.

I've bought the wrong lugnuts several times, everyone does, I've used them on cars for years, but there are things you simply don't challenge after learning. Happy Holidays

Re: Black Lug Nuts Mod (2015 JGC Altitude)

Here are the ones from Summit that antsjeep suggested. (Gorilla Wheel Locks
GOR-96643BDX Lug Nuts, Steel, Black Chrome, Conical Seat, 14mm x 1.50 RH, Closed End, Locking, Set of 20) They fit perfectly and don't show any silver around the edges of the lugs. Also painted the calipers and rotor hats with VHT Gloss Black Caliper Paint. It really looks nice now all glossy.

Re: Black Lug Nuts Mod (2015 JGC Altitude)

So what ones are the best fit? There are alot of sizes that come up in a ebay search. But there is only 2 that appear in ebay Australia. They have a weird looking shape and i don't think they would be long enough.
And I'm not keen on getting all lock nuts.
Cheers.
