That's a lug nut off of a '79 Camaro Berlinetta. The beauty cap has come off. Right rear wheel I think....

Actually the lug nut is from a 1978 Monte Carlo Left Rear.

I would have accepted

any GM Steel wheel from the dawn of time till 1993 but not a FWD car.

lol

This shouldn't be a problem for you lug nut experts.

Yes, they are knock offs, and they aren't "knock offs".

Thats a big clue.

Knowing that an educated guess can be made as to what car they are attached to.
