I use a 3/8 SAE extra thick grade 8 washer finished in zinc yellow 100 for $12.03 free shipping eBay.

They will not distort even if the lug holes are dimpled in.

I use the zinc yellow nylon lock nuts 100 for $12.59 from eBay free shipping

but for the purest I use the steel flex lock nut from McMaster-Carr priced $8.01 for 10
