Getting new rims, what king of lug nuts to get?

I am getting ballistic jester off road rims for my car, and I have no clue what lug nuts to get and where to get them. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Would those black acorn nuts on that website fit with the ballistic jester wheels?

You got a picture of these wheels? Maybe contact whoever you are purchasing them from and ask if these nuts will work, but I'd imagine that lugnuts are pretty universal. I might be wrong though so hopefully someone else chimes in.

Yeah me to. They asked if I wanted black or chrome. Thought they just came standard with new wheels.

RIMS do not need lug nuts, but WHEELSs do! If you're confused, look up the definition of both.

Contact the seller and ask this question. If they can't provide the requested info, take your business elsewhere.

M.A.C.

Pretty sure most steel wheels use the tapered acorn style lug nuts. Aluminum/ alloy wheels use the straight shank style (not sure what the nickname is).

Not to get into racial vernaculars but "rims" and "wheels" are interchangeable.
