    New lugs for Stock wheels.

    So I want to get red lugs for my stock wheels, I heard that some don't fit on the stock wheels.
    Would these fit? I have a 2014 WRX.

    Evasive Motorsports | PH: 626.336.3400 Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm PST: Muteki Lug Nuts - RED OPEN Ended

    They have 'closed' and 'opened'
    Not sure what that means, sorry if there's a thread about this somewhere.

    The seller clearly states that they are not to be used on factory wheels. After market wheels only because they are tapered.
    Other than that, I have no idea.

    Open and closed refers to the ends, stock are closed and most aftermarket are open. Pictured are open on the left, closed on the right. You get the idea.



    Most Subaru factory wheels are drilled for tapered/conical lugs. And pretty much every tapered/conical seat made is a 60 degree taper. So most aftermarket lugs will work with your factory wheels. I have Titek lugs on my 05 WRX wheels for RallyCross. Pictured are the types of lug seats out there. Most people mistaken the ball seat for conical and run into major trouble.



    However, I would make double certain of the seat type of your wheels.

    Silly reason to spend > $50

    Whatever reason, make sure you do NOT buy aluminum lugs.

    I can attest to not buying aluminum lugs. They'll strip out like nothing. Weight savings isn't worth it, not to mention illegal with some racing bodies.

    Right right. I don't care about the weight saving ect. I just wanted to find some red lugs that would fit on the stock wheels. Just wanted to change the look a bit.
