    A pretty minor thing but I figured I'd ask anyways. Any differences with using open or closed end lug nuts? Other than the physical differences, of course. Which one are you guys rocking that have wheels that require "turner" style lugs nuts?

    Only in racing events as at as I know. You have to have open lugs so they can see how much is threaded on.

    Closed ones cause they keep the dirt out.

    Keeps out excessive moisture which prevents rusting of the lug and hides the ugly lug. McGard makes some very nice closed-end tuner-style lugnuts. Check out the Spline Drive lugnuts at:

    thank you. that was my main concern. That moisture and what not would get in between the lug nut and bolt, causing rusting.

    Only time you would need open end lug nuts are when you have longer wheel studs. Which is mostly in racing application.
