    I am looking into getting these wheels but i am unsure of the correct lugnuts. in DC website it says their wheels use a "60-degree, conical-bulge seat lug nut" for proper fitment. I will be getting the lugnuts from wheelers, but i don't know which lug nut on this page are the right ones? http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacomablackalloys.htm

    anyone out there with these wheels have input on this?

    so just the regular acorn or should i get the ET style? I would prefer the ET style, but i'm worried it has the incorrect base for the DC wheel?

    The ET's will work as long as the extended thread shaft fit's in your mounting hole. Judging by some of the pics, you're going to want the ETs too. It doesn't look like a 13/16" lug will work

    ya i emailed both dick cepek and wheelers with this same question but neither have responded yet so we will see what they say. I'm just confused as whether the "60 degree conical bulge seat" is what the base of the lug nut should be? Cuz the ET style base doesn't look conical haha

    Well, I called DC yesterday and the guy I talked to say he didn't recommend the ET...just 60 degree conical bulge. So, I ordered the ones up there ^ that I posted. Hope they work!
