    Lug nuts

    Who's replaced the crappy 2 piece lugs. I watched a YouTube video saying these Gorilla Automotive 61147CX Factory Style Bulge Chrome 21mm (13/16") Hex Lug Nuts, 4 Pack will work with the GT350, but I don't think they will work with the GT350R.

    Has anyone tried these?

    I was hoping to not spend $300+ on the MGW lugs.

    thanks!!

    they actually don't - when you try and use the 350 lugs on the R, when you get to your torque spec, the stud has pushed the cap off - studs are longer all the way around -

    That's what I thought. I remember reading somewhere that the R studs are longer. Still need a resolution to get these crappy lugs off my car.

    Does anyone have any experience with them?

    I fubared one of my factory lugs when I took the wheels off for cleaning. Had to hammer a 21mm 6 point socket on to get the lug nut off.

    I bought aftermarket wheels, SVE R350, and these are the lugs I use on both these track wheels and stock wheels. These lugs work for both. Stock lugs are shit, please replace them as one of the first things you do. I also have found far less loosening of the these lugs during track events.

    Thanks but they will NOT work, it says on the website "Will Not fit Shelbey GT350r's" and YES they did spell Shelby "Shelbey" duh.

    I assume they fit the GT350 just fine, but not the R model.
