moto metal 957 lug nuts???

Been searching for a while and can't find a definitive answer to what lugs to buy for the Moto Metal 957s. I'm planning on buying these in the machined finish as 17x9s, but don't know if I need to order new lugs. If new, am I looking for tapered acorns or shanked lugs? I've seen some references to gorillas, but I was planning to get wheels from 4wheelparts who only sells procomp lugs. Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks cantac09. Did you order the lugs online or were they provided by the shop? Did you also get the hub centering rings?

After even more searching, I've decided to buy the gorillas with the .25" shank and 60 degree conical end. The gorilla wheel locks, however, are .30" shanks. Can anyone confirm that the .30" shank won't bottom out on the hub before the lug reaches full torque?


Here's a link to the lugs:
