    Titanium Lug Nuts from TurboXS!! Ready for the price?

    Just browsing around the site and I see a few new products... shift knob, shift knob with a switch built into it for boost, nitrous, etc.... pretty cool.
    Ooh they have lug nuts too... anodized and non-anodized aluminum, fair pricing too.
    Then I see the motherload... titanium lug nuts! For the ultimate in lightening! And the best part is the price... check it out. I just bought a set of used wheels for less than that, haha.

    But... but... but... lug nuts are unsprung weight and your rear seat is not. Now $450 seems worth it... right?

    That is insane. There is no way titanium costs that much for tiny little lug nuts.

    Youch! The weight savings over aluminum wouldn't be a lot.

    Here's a old thread of mine from 03 on the weight savings of Ray's lugs
