The car I recently bought has just lug nuts.
Thanks.

When I got my Elco a year ago it came wit outlaw2 rims & they have washers but I may have the wrong lugs because the pics of the outlaw2 rims they show on Jegs has no washers but the lugs look different than mine. I think it all comes down to what kinda lugnuts you have I hope this helps a little.

Thank you.
Mine have a taper but the base is not quite as large as what you have in the third pic.
The center pic looks closer to what I have.
Are they the exact same nut?
Thanks so much for the photos.:You_Rock:

I must have a mismatched set of wheels, as two have American racing center caps.
I also have a 4 piece set of superior wheel caps and they don't interchange.
Superior still in business?
Thanks.

I'm not sure about superior. I think my wheel could go with or without washers since they have both the tapered hole and the flat spot for a washer. As far as center caps, that will only tell you which cap you have. Take off the wheel and the mfg's name will be on the inside of that. Also, if your wheels are not clear coated, NAPA has some wheel cleaner that bis the best I've found. At $14 per bottle, its expensive, but well worth it. Keep us posted.
