    I just bought these from ford performance. Has anyone used them yet? I'll have them next week.

    I thought you were using Ti lug nuts? Those should work fine but I'm not sure if they will work with the N4SM wheels. Let us know what you think of them when they arrive.

    It's confirmed that both of these sockets work with the Dorman 611-257 lug nuts:

    Copied over from the N4SM R Spec thread...

    Instead of guessing let's measure! All three of these fit in my wheels so the two links below both state 1.10" in diameter so they should do fit.

    Do the FRPP M-1012-N lug nuts work with 6GR wheels?

    The ford performance nuts (25pcs) are like $63 including $17 shipping via Levittown or Donwood.

    611-257 dorman are like $2.77 each via rock auto ($7 shipping) unless yall can post a link where to find them reasonably priced?

    Some options for 6GR wheels:
    Interface OD of lug seat (60 deg cone), wrenching, height(length of nut)

    Unknown mfg. Have tracked on these and purposely destroyed a couple on stock studs to test overtorque to 220ft/lb. Plating holds up good so far. Torquing to 148# M14x1.5 on 10.9 grade Dorman studs.
    0.90", 3/4(19mm), 21.24mm
    $16.45 (24) shipped
    https://www.lugnutguys.com/product/open-end-exc-1109hd-24
    $42.00 (100) inc. shipping

    Ford supplier: Quality likely high, fit unknown and ordered to test:
    $51 (25)shipped
    https://shop.watsonracing.com/S550-...ACK-M-1012-N-2015-17-p/wr-1012-n.htm?CartID=1

    Others via Brandsport I have ordered and tested:
    Gorilla $1.14 each at 24 pcs
    http://www.brandsport.com/grla-90048.html

    Gorilla $1.09 each at 24 pcs
    http://www.brandsport.com/grla-96048.html

    Splined Excaliber $1.29
    http://www.brandsport.com/excl-98-0419oe.html

    Splined Gorilla $50 set
    http://www.brandsport.com/grla-26043sd.html
    http://www.brandsport.com/grla-26048sd.html

    Questionables:
    90048S too short, not enough threads for repeat use
    70048 too short and not wide enough at interface
    96048 Gorilla little on short side and maybe soft, killed one seating 4 long studs at 170# but that might be somewhat abusive.

    I doubt it. If they are like the S197 open lug nuts they are different.

    What's the verdict? Do the 1012-N ford nuts fit the 6GR rims?

    The Dormans fit fine.
