These all come in a set of 20 and I need 24 😒
I was looking at those lug nuts, but I noticed a few of the reviews complained they rusted after only a few weeks. If you live in a snowy climate, I would look elsewhere. Jloops lives in Florida, so any lug nut will likely work for him without rusting.

I got the caps from Amazon. I was going to put them on today but it was cold and I was lazy.

Yep. I've noticed most of the OEM's put chrome lug nuts on black wheels and rust is probably the reason. I did a pretty thorough search for the best black lug nuts I could find, and it seems McGard is one of the few that have a lifetime guarantee against rust. I think the difference is the McGard black lug nuts are black chrome, not painted. They don't match the matte black wheel color as well as painted lug nuts, so I bought the shortest, spline type I could find, so they would be less noticeable.

Nice looking wheels there. McGard is the brand I'm leaning towards. They're not cheap, but if the hold up well it could be cheaper in the long run by not needing to replace them after each winter.

Thanks. That was my thinking.

Interesting. The mirrors on my truck have flake just like the grille. Here's a pic, but it's hard to see. The camera keeps focusing on the reflection of my phone instead of the mirror. Looks like dust in the pic, but that's the flake. There's no dust on the mirror cap.

Mirror caps and grille on mine are DBCP!

I just went out and looked at mine and you're right.

Confirmed. Mirrors and grill are both DBCP.

I put the lugnut covers on. I think it's OK for the price.
