    Can you get them in steel rather than alu?

    Has there been any invesitagation on this?? These look like the sort of thing I would want to hold my wheels on, so long as I can be confident in their ability to not fail.

    Oh, and the weight saving could be far better acheived by me not eating Pizza on a Friday night...

    Our wheel nuts are not cut from a billet and then T6 treated, that is actually the cheap way to do it. Ours are individually forged, and we leave the forging marks on the hex to prove it. The threads and the tapered end are the only parts that are cut. These things are super strong, in testing we found the studs would snap if you continued applying torque. More to the point, we have been selling them for years now and never a single problem.
    You can buy them in sets of 16 or 20 on our shopping website: otomoto.shop033.com -

    We now offer Watanabe stainless steel nuts, which feature a swivel collar to prevent wheel damage. Unfortunately they are more than double the price at $205 for 16 nuts. They are available in silver or black on our website (see link previous post)
