Extended Thread Lug nut question

At long last I now have 4 ARTQD 15" mags sitting on my living room couch. My wife, she says I should remove them, put them on my 39.... I would do this if I only knew how. Yes! That's right, I don't know how to mount these wheels. (Everybody else must, because there seems to be no questions like I have on this web site.) (Ok, I'm blind too.)

These wheels will mount to a 1980 Camaro ten bolt, 5X4.75, 7/16-20, rear. 5X5, 1/2-20 front.

Wheels have 60 degree chamfer(?), and over sized lug holes, and about a half inch thick boss to which the brake drums/axle attaches.

If I use the nuts with taper and can see the stud when the nut is on (no cap over it)...I think this is BAD. No surface for the wheel "boss" (my word) to ride upon.

I think I need an "extended thread" lug nut with a 60 degree taper and about a half inch extension which will fit inside the wheel "boss".

What say Ye of great and powerful hot rod savvy?

Go to a store that sells wheels
& get the correct lugs for the wheels.
You need a lug with a taper & a long
shoulder to go into the hole so the
wheels don't wobble.
Take care,
Hope you have a Merry Christmas
