aftermarket lug nuts

I noticed some wheel lug nuts of my used 2010 Ford Mustang are too loose and two of them are rusting.
To be safe,I am considering to replace them ASAP.
This artilce tells me that taking proper measurments of my stock ones before ordering,the specs are including the thread size ,length and so on.
What I am concerned is the Longevity.I am reading lots of posts online and some reflected afternarket lug nuts are starting to show rust after a few months.Has anyone purchased aftermarket locking lug nuts yet?
What do you think ?
Thanks in advance.

I would get in touch with one of our vendors like American Muscle or CJ Pony Parts. They will know what you need

what do you mean they are "too loose" ?

Personally I think it would be worth a few extra dollars to get OEM lug nuts. I have noticed that the cheap aftermarket ones are cheap.

If your the kinda guy that likes tinkering with your car why not remove the OEM lug nuts, clean them up reinstall and torque to mfg. specifications. If not just go to any ford dealer for OEM replacements. As stated before, cheap aftermarket lug nuts are just that, cheap.
