Are they available? I want to replace my crappy pitting chrome lugs, but the only alternative that I've found so far is painted steel. Am I just overlooking them somewhere, or is this just something that no one makes? TIA

aluminum lug nuts

Porsche has been using them forever on the 911 . I don't know of an American thread supplier though. Keeping your wheels clean and drying them after washing usually makes chrome last a very long time though.

Well the previous owner must not have been very careful. Since I will have to replace them I figured I would go with something a little nicer.

There are many different companies that make a 7071 AL lug nut. Stronger and lighter then steel. Might want to try looking at import shops. Usually the tooonerz idiots go after those first. They can be had in a standard thread pitch as well.
