After some debate, I decided to go with a very light-weight set of 949 Racing lug nuts in standard polished attire. Racked my head back and forth on going with black, but noticed that the anodization on the black does get marred and abused. Quality is very nice and holy cow – very light weight!
I decided to upgrade while at Miatas at the Gap this year and having the spline drive key start to slip in my metrics and I could see a storm-a-commin’ with a spline failure. Something I did not want to see happen. Therefore, I passed on security and went with ease of install/removal and good looks. A bit concerned with the open ends as surface rust may start to creep in, but we will wait and see. So far, they look great.
