New rims, lug nuts question

Hi guys, so I just purchased 19 inch Avant Garde M355 rims. The shop I bought them from are including lug nuts and wheel locks. They did recommend I use my OEM lug bolts since they are forged. I don't have a chance to take a look, but my car came with 19 ellipsoid wheels.

What color may the lug bolts be so I can get the matching wheel locks?

Nice choice on the wheels My oem lug bolts are black and you can hardly notice them as they are below the surface of the mounting holes.

I assume you got chrome studs and locks to match? I guess I'm lucky, but so far I have not needed the use of wheel locks. I hope I just didn't jinx myself.

The factory BMW lug nuts are typically black. You can also purchase the OEM wheel locks as well to match.

Can't believe that you waited so long to get the rims installed! They're going to look great

I just received my MGP caliper covers and going to order StopTech rotors and pads today. Once I get everything installed, I'll post some pictures.

yeah tell me about it. I bought it in September and then put it in storage for the winter. I figured I'd get rims come spring.....even though it snowed like 3-6" last night, I just couldn't wait any longer so I bought the wheels last week lol!!! Next week, getting the calipers painted and I'll be done for a while.

Definitely need to get StopTech rotors and pads once time comes. That'll complete the look
