Thumbs down Don't buy Muteki Lugs

I bought the super tuner Muteki spline lug nuts... Blue. It's been 5 days and they already have started to flake.

Probably should have spent a bit more.

Never got the idea of color lug nuts since I would think they would get jacked up when removing wheels after time. If you go with regular ones, get McGard's spline drive.

Now that you mention it, do black lugnuts look good on the stock accord wheels? (2010)

Take a pic of your wheels and photoshop the lugs black. You probably don't need photoshop. MS paint will suffice.

But stock wheels are stock wheels. Don't try to glorify them. Unless you powdercoat them.

unless ur painting oem lugs. Don't use aftermarket lugs on OEM wheels unless you want to die. They seat differently

you might have fake lugs.. or someone miss handle them.

Peace Out SuckA!!!!

I've had Muteki tuner lug-nuts (black, cold-steel, spline-drive) for over 5-6 years & they still look as-if they are new. And I mount/dismount my wheels perhaps 3-4 a year (tire-changes, track events, etc).

Air-tools are always a no-no. And so is over-torquing, it's always worthwhile to use a torque-wrench when mounting wheels (1/2" drive torque-wrench is ~$10 at Harbor Freight). Lastly, have a shop-towel or rag to place the lug-nuts onto when they are removed, most gouges/scrapes/blemishes happen from contact w/ the ground.

Motegi lug-nuts are different than Moteki, the former being manufactured by American Racing & of a lower quality than the latter. Kyokugen also are available, similar quality to Mukegi lug-nuts; they have plastic-endcaps which are known to come off from use/wear-&-tear.

Generally speaking, all anodized finishes on lug-nuts will blemish if not handled correctly & carefully; regardless of the cost. Black/chrome/polished generally holdup the best over time.

My guess is you bought fake ones. Not that Muteki is THE brand to copy, but they have a known name and Chinese will surely copy them. They shouldnt have flaked so fast, no matter what you did with them.

Yes.


I have both black and purple Muteki lugs. Both have paint missing after a couple of years. I didn't expect them to stay perfect though.
