Default Wing nuts/Hexnuts

Has anyone replaced their knock-offs (wing nuts) with the hex type wheel nuts on their BDR? I know backdraft has some used ones, but no new ones, and they are aluminum, and I would prefer steel. Are they available from the other halibrand type wheel mfrs, or some racing supply co.? Any leads appreciated!
TIA, Ted

All highly stressed race cars I know of use aluminum. They will work perfectly for you. They never will come loose. Why would you want steel? I doubt you will ever find steel. Good Luck.
