Anyone tried the EAS RAD lug bolts?

I'm looking for some silver lug bolts, and am looking for recomendations of some that won't rust...

Anyone used these or have another recomendation for some silver bolts?

Thanks!

Steve

Here's the EAS ones:

Not going to rust - you're fine. The RAD lugs/locks have a dacromet coating that's resistant to corrosion or rust.

We're shipping your new lugs tomorrow afternoon!

Tom,
I'd say about half of the bolts that I got have rusted really badly... How do I go about getting replacements??

That's odd it would be half and not all. Can you send me a picture via email?

My email is listed in my signature.

It's hard to tell from pictures if that is surface rust or not, email me directly and I'll send instructions on how to return them for inspection.

RAD makes a great wheel lock, it's what we carry as well.

Well, I'm afraid to report that a few years years later the bolts have rusted again... I've contacted EAS and am sending them back so they can ship them to the manufacturer. They aren't hopeful that the claim will be honored by the manufacturer though.

It's a bummer, because the bolts look great when new, but unfortunately, $75 doesn't buy you 2 years of rust free bolts...
