Hey I need the same size Ford lug nuts only smaller

I'm currently running cheapie ePay 13/16 lug nuts on a set of unilug Cragar 30 spoke wires. The lugs are pretty difficult to get on and and off as the 13/16 socket wedges itself against the center caps.

Is there a smaller exterior dimension lug nut I can use that will retain the interior dimension I need to work on my wheel studs? Maybe something like tapered bullet lug nuts?

MY 96 Mazda ( really a ranger with a different grill) with alum wheels uses the 3/4 socket. It was cheaper than an identical ranger when my son bought it.
