Rays Engineering lightweight Duraluminum lug nuts

Well, with my soon-to-be-installed Work Emotion XD9 wheels which leaves the lug nuts exposed, I can't be using the stock ones which looked pretty crap eh? :P

So I got myself a set of the lightweight forged Duraluminum lug nuts from Rays Engineering. These lug nuts are extremely strong and ultra light. It's only 0.8 oz each! (about 22.6 gms).

The Rays lug nuts also feature one 7-sided lug nut per wheel. These heptagonal nuts look stock from a distance, but can only be removed with the specially designed socket that comes with the set. These will act as the lock nuts to protect the wheels from theft.

The lug nuts are available in anodized red, blue, or black. I got the blue ones. Afterall, it matches the blue Work V29R2 wheel valves and my blue painted Sumitomo calipers. :P

For the ER34, ones have to ensure to get the correct specifications, which is the M12 X P1.25 thread size.

Will update when I get my wheels and lug nuts installed.

Stay tuned.......

  1. Wah! Rays Engineering. It's my favourite brand for wheels. Make sure u keep the socket properly. Once lost, even the tyre guys find it difficult to remove thw wheels. I had this experience before.

  2. Next I guess is the tyres rite. Any particular brand? May be Toyo Proxes T1?

  3. Yes am looking at a few models.

    And yes Proxes T1-R is in my list as well. :P

  4. Was told those aluminium lugs can melt under extreme heat and got stuck with the bolts. Very messy..

    Don't know how true..

  7. Dunno how much $$$ u spend on your lugs but those selling in ENEOS at RN200 per pack from K'Speed is certainly of a more inferior brand.

    I think those are more likely to melt.. :P

  8. Eh, astroboy when you free to meet up with us anyway? :)

    Actually those K-Speed ones looks not to bad too. My set should set one back around RM450.00
