    Ok...question. What's your guys' thought on chrome lugs with these new wheels? Apparently the new wheels are designed/built to be used with stock lugs...but it seems Ferrari does not make dark lugs. They do make some titanium (light gray) apparently, but my wife pointed out that the chrome would look good, since the center caps have the prancing horse in chrome. And obviously the stock wheels, which are more or less the same color, just glossy, are using chrome lugs.

    Love the style of the hex bolt lug, looks great.

    I did find these online...

    Not sure I understand the difference between the one piece and two piece design...and why you'd want a two piece lug nut? Image Unavailable, Please Login

    The newer style two-piece lug bolts are designed to minimize galling on the conical contact surface of the wheel.

    Chrome looks best. Adds visual interest and a bit of mechanical complexity, plus picks up the chrome of the Cavalino.

    Nice, thanks man. I'm going to go with those as well. Nice wheels too, not that dissimilar from the ones I went with, and star color car. :D
