I have a set of genuine RAYS for sale, super light weight, got a set on mine already and never had any issues so long as you torque to the correct specs

I don't think those will work unless I have Rays wheels as they're tapered to match rays aren't they?

I've used both mishimoto from Amber performance & muteki from Tarmac sports.
There open lug nuts, cost between 50-60 if I remember correctly

Both have been fine the mishimoto are light weight aircraft aluminium and the muteki are I believe forged steel. If I'm honest I prefer the muteki there a little heavier and feel more solid.
