First time post here. I need to replace the wheel bolts for my dart, I called my local dealership and they're charging $13.50 per bolt which is expensive considering I need to replace the better half of them. Does anyone know of any better cheaper options?
These bolts i found at NAPA are much cheaper so I am a bit hesitant and am not sure if they will fit.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Goto www.deyemeracing.com Pick out what size you need.These are better than stock ones.They are alot cheaper than 13.50 a piece.I have had these on my dart for sometime now.

The original wheel bolts are prone to swelling from rust creeping under the stainless cap. When a socket is pushed on and does not seat all the way down because of the swelling, the soft cap gets destroyed. I use a small smear of grease at the junction of the cap and the bolt and still have not had a swollen lug bolt.
The Napa bolts look correct if you want the original style. You can find the oem bolts online for much less than $13.50 each. Some aftermarket chrome plated bolts will rust.
I have picked up quite a few spares at the junkyard. I always check if they are swollen with a 19 mm socket. They are free at most self serve yards.

I bought these from MPx for my 2.4L within the past year. More solid than the OEM. So far so good.

I bought these as well. They work great, but I will say the black ones have rusted here in Michigan winters. I am debating on getting a set of the chrome instead as the car has now been passed onto my daughter

That is the same set I got. Way better than the OEM stuff.

I got tired of jacking with these crappy things. I installed studs and regular lug nuts about 3 years ago. Best thing I have done to the car. I just looked online to find the studs and bought lug nuts at Auto Zone. I can't find the order for the part number where I got the studs. Sorry.

I purchased replacement bolts for mine from amazon.


Dorman .. there are a few versions so you have to be careful making sure they are replacements for the OEM ones. (my dart is the 2013 T1.4L)

These are solid, no cap bs to break down and cause problems as too often the torque on the impact guns those mechanics use is way to high anyway ..
