Default Need Help Finding White Lug Nuts!

I'm trying to find some white lug nuts for my RPF1s that were delivered yesterday. I'm totally stoked about them! I bought some nice hubcaps that have the white Enkei logo on them so i'm picturing white lug nuts to go with it. My issue is I can't seem to find any white lug nuts that are worth a damn. I of course want them to have a key so people just can't steal my wheels. Everywhere I have looked so far either have extremely cheap lugs or don't have them in white. Anyone know of a good brand who makes them? Thanks!

Horse, You probably know and accept that these things are gonna show more dirt than a Planet Earth documentary. That said, you could probably buy a good set of lock nuts and send them off to someone for powder coating. It would be super easy to do a set and probably not too expensive. If you do go with that, consider where the contact (key) surface area will be. Powder coat is strong but may wear under heavy cranking over time.

White lug nuts aren't common because you can't anodize metal with white. That leaves some type of coating as the only option for a white finish, which means it's going to chip away and look like crap after you remove your wheels once, and it's only going to get worse every time you remove and reinstall them. I've had multiple sets of project kics and rays anodized lug nuts and they all held up amazingly well. I had one set of muteki lug nuts with a painted coating and they looked like trash really quick.

I have a PC gun and bought a bunch of cheap lugs to powder coat for practice/fun. It does take quite the abuse, after removing my lugs multiple times not much damage is showing on the surface. All reputable powders have: wear, impact, hardness, uv, and salt spray ratings.
