    I recently bought some wheels from another 1st gen owner locally.FE380D94-B078-436A-96DE-0A65B57C269F.jpg The problem I have is that I do not know which lug nuts to use(did not think to ask the PO) I am currently running acorn style on my steel wheels. the new alloy wheels are much thicker but I am able to get atleast 5 FULL turns before I torque them down.636E9846-AACC-4E76-916B-24F7BD7BB8D6.jpg D5E842FE-1D06-4AB1-A586-9B8C1FE1043A.jpg Just wondering if that is enough thread engagement to be safe. The stock mag style lugs to not fit the wheel lug holes. FA12F30B-9A19-4EBE-819C-F81BE5364A0F.jpg 209C7C42-4D4B-45E3-8CCF-FAF7558C0004.jpg

    Any help/input would help.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think the black ones. The OEM ones are cone shaped and the black ones look like they would give you much more threads cause the sleeve will go down inside the lug hole.

    The black ones do not fit in the holes in the wheels. They fit in my fathers stock alloys as thats where I got them from.

    Go to a tire shop and ask a professional.

    You will need the black ones (Extended Thread) in the correct size for the bore. Bring the rim to a tire shop and they will help you out.

    I second what @Jay-coma said, but also you will probably need a spline style nut like what @tacopashka said.

    Your wheels look like they have a slanted edge to accept a lug nut (are they pro comp? look very similar to mine), you will need an ACORN style lug nut. The one I linked is what I have been using for 8+ years now. They work great for wheels with thick hubs.

    ^these are what you want to get. They are conical lug nuts with extented thread (ET) splines. The cone starts higher up on the lug compared to the typical aftermarket lug nut where the cone starts at the beginning of the threads.
