Source for Chrome or SS lug bolts

Hello, has anyone found a source of Chrome or SS lug bolts for the 300D's? I believe the size is 12x1.5x29mm.

Thanks

All fastlane has are the standard bolts from Febi. I believe he is looking for a superior bolt, such as one made from stainless steel.

I just spoke with a possible source that SS (stainless steel) bolts are not recommended in lugs. They tend to expand/contract and can be difficult to remove.

I know that Gorilla makes a ball seat 12 x 1.5 but I have to verify the length (mm) and where I can buy it from. Just want to dress-up the car.

We just paint ours with some silver paint, looks great and matches the wheels very nicely. In fact, I might give mine another coat today!

Yep to use SS you would need some anti-sieze.

Tirerack sent me a new set with my wheels, after 5 years they don't look so pretty anymore. Stick with painted ones.
