    I bought the Ridgeline black lug nuts since they were $50 shipped. Didn’t want to spend the $200 for the Type R specific ones from Honda accessories.
    For some reason, I believe Honda used a different thread pitch on the R and the Ridgeline....which is odd, but that’s what I’ve read on the R forums.

    Not getting the special socket. I’ll see how these hood up.

    Back in the 8thGen days I bought the basic black lugs and they held up well.

    im pretty sure they are all the same, they just jack up the price on different "models" to try and get people........its just a black ball seat lug nut but honda will try and upcharge for say a s2000 cr vs a ridgeline vs a civic

    edit:
    also you can score some good deals on ebay for the lugs if you are looking. mine were off a car that was crashed and i got all 20 lugs for $15 or something dumb like that and i got brand new in box black oem wheel locks which from a dealer are like $85 i got them for $30 shipped.

    The Type R accessory lugs are def different than the Ridgeline ones that come standard with their black wheels. From what I read and saw on the forums, the Type R ones are longer and a nicer smooth finish.

    Still not worth $150 more to me.

    Nope. Not if the cheaper ones fit the same.

    Got bored and swapped out the 10 black lugs I had on the car.

    There is def a height difference in the two lugs. The chrome ones are taller due to an extra space at the top of the lug that has no threads. Both lugs have 10 thread on each. Got 10 full turns and a little more on the black lugs.

    Lugs now tuck in the wheels nicely.
