Someone hit me up on IG and asked me about the declads...i referd them here and realized I never finished the how-to.

So finding lug nuts was a problem for me. I wanted the shortest possible lug nuts but not very many are offered in Acorn "Bulge" like oem nuts. Regular "Acorn" nuts will work but they sit deeper in the tapered hole and can damage the wheel. So I went with stainless NNBS nuts.

I wanted to try using the black caps, but they stick out too much

Ran capless for a while

Also had to get an og gmfs member to machine me some custom caps since I couldnt fit the declad caps and they really dont clip in good and I didnt want to jerry rig something

These caps use 3 set screws each to hold them in place...theyre not going anywhere and are easily removed

My caps are easily removable too! Haha. I have the lug nuts off a 16 tahoe. Look the same. I have a new unopened pack of the open faced lugs with the putter threads but no black caps lol
