Design trends come and go in the auto industry, but these days, one design trend in particular seems to be lingering longer than most. Of course, we’re talking about the black-out color theme, with a swath of vehicles across the industry offering head-to-toe black coloring for nearly every single component capable of holding paint. GM has capitalized on the trend with its own variety of special edition models and packages, and now, certain GM owners have a chance to add yet another blacked-out design touch with black lug nuts.
The black GM lug nuts follow a cascade of black design cues from the automaker. Just a few examples would include black grille treatments, black exterior trim, black window surrounds (or daylight openings, otherwise known as DLO treatments), and black wheels. However, until now, GM has only offered lug nuts with a chrome finish. Now, these black GM lug nuts complete the black-out theme even further.
The black GM lug nuts are available both with and without locking capability. We’ve listed the various components on offer below, including the relevant RPO codes for each item in parentheses:
- Black lug nuts (SPY)
- Black wheel locks (SPZ)
- Black Wheel Lug Nuts and Locks Package (PCL), includes Black wheel locks (SPZ) and Black lug nuts (SPY)
Each of these items is offered as an LPO level accessory, which means they are shipped to and installed by the dealer, rather than installed at the factory.
The black GM lug nuts are available for the following vehicles:
It’s also uncertain how scratch resistant these items are, and how the black finish would interact with socket when used to remove a wheel.
According to the official Chevrolet Accessories website, black GM lug nuts for the 2021 Chevy Camaro are available for $195.
