    I was told that you need new ones when I got the same wheels. I ended up with a Gorilla Spline drive kit, similar to these:

    http://www.gorilla-auto.com/gorilla.locks.page_25

    It's been a while since I've rotated them, so I can't remember 100% for sure, but I believe its the "Short Mag" found on that link. I was told the Acorn type isn't the proper type for the moto metals, and that the ones I have now center the wheel on the hub properly.

    Having said that, I did use the factory ones for a very short time until someone told me that was incorrect. They worked, but these are also working, plus you need a key to get them off which is a plus.

    Edit: now that I look again, it could be the standard mag. Sorry I'm not sure which I'm using, hope this helps a little though.

    It's 12x1.5 and you're looking for an ET-style set of lugs. They have a small shank that helps center the wheels on the hub. Hope this helps

    length shouldn't be a problem, considering that the hub application is gonna take care of that for you
