Keep looks great.

Do you need a special lug wrench to not scrape up the black lug nuts?

Thanks!

Do you run your Jeep through car washes with those rotating brushes? Looks kind of like that. Someone else posted a pic that looked very similar and he had taken it through one of those car washes.

I put some blue tape inside the socket to protect the lugs.

Yeah that is what happened. Went again and got more, ended up filing a police report because the owner of the car wash denied the scratches, even though he had his guys fixing it.

Good idea. I called Gorilla and they said nothing special is required, just no impact guns.

I installed mine by hand (they look so good!) with no issues. I'll prob add the blue tape in the future.

Re: 2015 Altitude - Billet Silver

Billet is beautiful. i usually like the black grill inserts but i feel like the silver compliments the billet. About your wheels, these wheels are the WORST. they show all imperfections. I have a few myself and its driving me nuts already. Enjoy your new Altitude man!

Nice! About the grill inserts - are the platinum (stockers) metal? Could they be painted or powder coated?

Plastic. You can paint them but the black ones are only $50.

Nice Altitude!! I need to post some pics of my Altitude and Summit that I just bought. The Summit hasn't been out for a couple of days. Just got about 3 feet of snow out here in CO.

My rims scratched like that. Used a da polisher porter cable 7424 and some mild compound. Took the scratches right out made em look new
Edit forgot to mention the rims are clear coated so your only buffing that out. If you go to far. Like paint it could burn in. The porter cable is pretty harmless if used correctly

I'm not known for my internet searching capabilities and my searching shows that these 16 4 Lock Gorilla Large Seat Factory Wheels Lug Nuts 14x1 5 M14 Rims Black | eBay
are not the ones to use with the Hemi ? Which ones are ?

Re: 2015 Altitude - Billet Silver

Yeah, I just checked and it looks like they aren't for the Hemi. Have you tried looking at the mopar store and then doing a cross comparison? Have you checked out Amazon versus Ebay? I know on my amazon account, i can basically store my car's information and then it will filter results for it.
