Default Lug Nuts

SFX Performance is showing that Gorilla is going to make solid replacement lug nuts for Ford factory wheel applications. Black available now, Chrome is in the works.


I wasn't able to find them on the Gorilla website. Anyone else have any information on this.

I have tried those and they don't work. The ones I saw on the other web sight looked like the Ford lug nuts, with the oversized bulge, only solid.

There's a guy on here using those with no issues. What wheels did they not work on?

You have to make sure they have the proper lug lip (deg of angle) and thread pitch.

I have the chrome version ...

*Part # 61108XL
and in the 4+ years of use have not had any issues. BTW ... They're standard on all of the 2004-2008 Saleen F-150s.

Have used Gorilla lug nuts on all of the FoMoCo vehicles that I've purchased since 1999. My other ride (2003 Crown Victoria LX Sport) still has them.

The only difference I see is the length. This could pose an issue getting a socket on them with the wheels that have the studs recessed into the wheel like the FX 20's. But I dont see either one as a problem for the wheels that have the entire lug nut exposed like the FX 18's.

Factory 20". Bulge wasn't large enough and went in too deep in the lug nut holes.


The ones I posted are supposed to be the correct ones. They even look like the factory lug nuts only they are solid instead of capped.
