[DML] Re: Lug Nut Inquiry (Tall, Short or Both)

Be VERY CAREFUL in looking for a replacement lug nut. They are not all
the same even if they look similar and seem to fit. The size and angle
of the flare differs and if it is too small or the wrong angle the lug
nut will not hold the rim properly. If you MUST have the "proper
looking" ones try all the vendors, some of them may have some used
ones in good condition. On other make cars many vendors sell solid
steel lug nuts just because the type with the shell does not last. On
a Lincoln I had I got tired of the shells spinning loose but the solid
ones were pricey.
