Do you need to run titanium or stainless lug nuts with the lug bolts as well?
Lug nuts made from steel are dissimilar from titanium and could create galvanic coupling issues when the parts are threaded together. Have you experienced any issues with this over time? Would you recommend titanium or stainless nuts to be used with these lug bolts?
I love titanium parts, so just a curious question. I work in aerospace and use a lot of 6AL-4V as well, and I know that galvanic compatibility is always a concern with titanium since it's not the friendliest metal to work with. Nice looking parts though!

Goes with the product though, $5000+ in custom wheels, a coupe grand in tires, $4-8k in suspension, brake components etc etc. The reason why I'm listing the other parts is if the wheel were to pop off these components may be damaged.
I'm in the titanium business as well, not only is the material not cheap, being made in states also raises the prices vs getting it over seas.
I paid $80 bucks for 20 locking generic, short, open end nuts made overseas vs these. So I think they are a premium, but worth the investment considering they hold $x000 together."You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life" -Winston Churchill]
