raidmagic,
Looking at the pix, it appears you will need mag type lugs(not acorn). Measure your wheel studs and go to the attached site and find the best match.

You will need something like the CRAGAR MAG W/WASHERS
Good luck,
Bob

Those are called .....

Una-lug wheels...take the wheel to a tire and wheel store and tell them the application...GM or Ford or Mopar and they will sell you the right lug nuts and washers. You will need to torque and re-torque and torque those wheels again...the lug nuts will fall off and so will the wheels....did I say to recheck the torque?? The lug nuts need to be long enough to go almost all the way through the wheel to the other side but stop short of going all the way through the wheel or they will not be able to be tightened...the wheel will be loose and the nuts will be tight...Get the right length lug nuts and you will be OK!!!
