Yes....but stock lugs are crap. They are short and fat and not worth scratching up new wheels. An extended length narrow lug would be a step up. Our McGards are particularly popular because they don't grind against the surface of your new wheels thanks to their two-piece design.

Don't you mean "nuts"? Lugs are the threaded posts.

I just went down this road. After using Enkei RFP1's for a couple seasons, the standard chrome steel lug nuts have ground up the seats a fair amount. I'm going to go with 2-piece lug nuts (like Brian recommends) from now on. McGuard's makes a nice 2-piece set, but they are "tuner lugs" so you have to use a special tuner lug socket.

Another option I'm looking at are these:

I've got a message into them asking if they will sell me a set where all 20 of the nuts are standard 6-point nuts (instead of including the 4 "locking" nuts). Hopefully I'll hear back from them on Monday. Otherwise, I'm going with the McGuards.

These will fit on stock wheels (16's from 01') right?
