Any chance you could have a cap made for your Ti lug nuts...?
If so I think your offering would appeal to an even larger group interested in your product... Thx

Curious what the steel lug studs weigh...? Maybe with the dg lugs and Ti studs there could be a lot of weight savings per wheel...?
A cap? Like a closed end version? I mean anything is possible but most tracks require open end to see thread engagement.

Yes to enclose/cap off the open end...
I would guess the “street” guys would luv these Ti lugs and probably Ti studs to lower the unsprung weight on each wheel... and the kuhl factor... and another “tweak” to say their car has...!!

I could get them made identical to factory aluminum closed lug nuts. I just prefer the open end because you don’t run into the issue when you run longer studs and spacers of bottoming out the lug nuts.

From my little work with lug nuts, it is a totally different animal to thread the lug as open or as closed style lug... read tooling/machining cost/time...
Thus my asking if you can offer a “cap”... maybe one made like the Fuchs wheel center cap that has the spring clips or press fit... which ever is least expensive but won’t fall off either... thx

Thumbs up on seller and on product. Nothing short of professional quality at a better value. May buy a second set in future for the GT2 (yes switched out to studs and steel rotors).

Will these guys work with a set of BBS RS wheels? Just want to make sure they will fit the contour correctly.
