Default Diamond Cut Wheel Lug Nuts

Does anyone know what type/style lug nuts I need for the 03 diamond cut wheels? I have the 5 spoke motion wheels now and theyhave a cover with just cad plated regular lug nuts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
YBnormal...drive a Monte Carlo

Default RE: Diamond Cut Wheel Lug Nuts

The Dale Jr wheels on my 04 are pretty much the same as the diamond cut on the 03, only with some black paint between the spokes.
This is a pic of the nuts that came on my wheels. It's like a press-fit aluminum cap over top of a normal lug nut. The nuts may look black in the pic, but that's just a trick of the light. They're actually a polished aluminum/chrome look.

The wheels on our '03 Pace car have different lug nuts then the picture posted by Taz.

These are a cad plated lug nut with threads cut on the outsides of the lug nuts so the plastic decorative covers Chevy used can screw on over the real/metal lug nuts.

We happened to loose or someone stole one of the covers the weekend of Columbus Goodguys 2008 event. I tried to buy one of the decorative covers through a local Chevy dealer and someone from 2000 Monte Carlo.net even offered to send 5 of the covers from his wheels to us for free.

I happened to notice the Pace car covers are not the same color as those used on other SS Montes. The Pace car covers look pewter while the stock SS covers look grey, maybe silver in color.

You can do a search on ebay and find auctions for complete sets of stock lug nuts & the decorative covers.
