Iff'n you can get your crew to make them out new areospace material, why exactly are you asking?? Almost anything you can get made would be at least as good as origininal, and I would bet, better. In the immortal words of the "water boy cajun" You can do eet.

Besides, you know a lot more about steel and stress math than the rest of us combined. Use it to your advantage ;-)

I am somewhat disgusted with the quality of the lug
nuts supplied with the Revolution wheels I was using
last year (threads not centered, material way too
soft, company now out of business, etc.).  The guys at
work (a first class aerospace machine shop) have
hex stock that is basically scrap (material is fine,
with certs and everything).  They can duplicate the
lug nuts on an NC machine for cheap, complete with
undercuts, bearing surface, heat treat, and
engineering hard chrome.  They can also leave the ends
open.  Question is, what material to use?  everything
I can find says "steel".  A286? 4140? 321? 347? Etc.?
