What is a lug nut?
A lug nut is the nut or bolt fastener seen on the exterior portion of the center of your rim which connects the rim to the wheel assembly. There are long threaded bolts that stick out from the wheel assembly. The car rim or wheel has holes in it that match the pattern of these threaded bolts, and you slide your wheel over the bolts and into place like putting a ring on your finger. Once in place, you use one lug nut per bolt to screw them tight around the remaining visible portion of the bolt. This locks the wheel in place and keeps it safe for driving.

Are they really that important?
Lug nuts are extremely important as they are the ONLY thing fastening your wheel to your car. Without the use of a lug nut, your wheels wouldn't stay on the vehicle and could present a life threatening situation.

Once they are on the wheel, I don't need to worry anymore
This is definitely not true. It's important to sporadically check your lug nuts to make sure they are fastened tightly and don't appear to have any visible damage. Lug nuts that are not attached properly into the threads can wear during driving and come off jeopardizing your safety and possibly causing costly wheel and brake damage. Loose lug nuts can cause tire wobble which could not only mean losing a wheel but damaging your alignment, destroying your wheel balance, causing extra tire wear, and possibly even bending your tie rods and a-arms. Since lug nuts are taken off so frequently for simple car repairs, it's good to keep a close eye on them.

Can they go bad?
Lug nuts will not typically crack, break, or melt. Lug nuts will need to be replaced if the threads inside are ruined or worn down. This comes from frequent use or from sloppy attachment by the person removing and re-attaching your wheels. If you are concerned about cosmetics, sometimes the lug nut exterior will be damaged by the tools used to remove them.

A lug nut is a lug nut, right? They're all the same?
For the most part, we'd have to say yes. The only reasons why you would want to buy a different kind of lug nut is for security or cosmetics. There are lug nuts available called locking lug nuts that require a special key to remove them. These are ideal for protecting after market rims, expensive tires, or any other wheel part that others may want. Other lug options include chrome, colored, or powder coated nuts to add some show and shine to your wheels.
