Yeah.. open ended has the potential to rust. Its a plus on cars with extended studs though.

I have open ended lugs.
jeshua, exactly what has the potential to rust? the studs or the lugs (if they were chromed steel)?

I just got the T1R forged aluminum open-ended lugs and now you got me worried a little bit.

The studs have a potential to rust and get stuck onto the lug. Just put some anti-seize on the stud heads and you'll be fine. It's due to the fact that most studs don't extend past the lug nut ends so water gets trapped in that little well. That, and they're constantly exposed to the elements.
