when i needed lug nuts for my galant because i bought rims off of e-bay i just went to a shop that sells rims they will have some in stock, i forget the size you need i think it is 12x1.50 but let some one else tell you for sure, if they are a good set it will cost around 50.00 or so maybe more maybe less, depends on the shop. (that is for all four rims )

get some with locks. you can stop by any tire/rim shop
What wheels did you get? You most likely have Splined tuner lugs if they are a good set of aftermarket rims. These lugs work fine to prevent theft. If you want some good ones get the Gorilla splined tuners. I have two sets on my rims just to be sure. I used to repo rims and we would bring a couple of sets of sockets and bang them on the locks. This usaully breaks the socket so its only good for one or maybe two locks if your lucky. Having eghit locks prevents this.

thanks for the recommendations.
i'm getting 5zigen imperios s-08 16".
i'd imagine tuner lugs would be the way to go.
what's the avg price for those gorillas?

Some names to remember that are quality lug nuts==
Gorilla, McGaurd, Rays Duraluminum
Make sure you get the "tuner" stye, as "acorn" lugs are usually reserved for stock wheels only.
Locks will give you peace of mind, and the extra key you must carry with your tools won't take up too much space.
