Twisted standard wheel pack or premium wheel pack
Hi, does anyone know what the difference between the standard wheel nuts pack & the premium wheel nuts pack ? Other than the cost.

Thanks

Premium is CNC made and higher quality. Then they put their name on it so again the price goes up. The other set are just nuts they have bought in. Less quality but will still hold you wheels on.

Something to consider: I had the cheaper ones and they rusted pretty quickly and you can’t really re-paint them. Instagram @richmond_custom

Might have to go with the premium ones. The rust would put me off the others. Just there is some difference in the cost. Thanks for the reply’s

Here Is how bad the twisted tax is....

I bought 2 sets of the standard black wheel nuts for £25 a pop. I plasti dipped my first silver ones when I bought the second set of twisted alloys and realised black was £25 for a set I got 2 more sets.
Direct from twisted.

to now charge 175 + vat is ridiculous.

As above, they aren’t cheap no matter which option you look at. Do a search on here for alternatives, I know I asked the question a while back so there is info kicking about. Instagram @richmond_custom

Lots and lots of people complain about the standard nuts rusting, but I’ve had mine fitted for many years with no rust, or degrading at all. I believe that the problem is that people use wheel cleaning acid on their wheels, and that causes issues with the nuts. Where I don’t wash use acid on mine, or particularly wash it now I think about it.
