Ummmm.... Stupid question. Does anyone know If I need special lug nuts for these wheels?

I was planning on using stock ones because I have a lock nut.

I don't think stock lug nuts will work/fit. I purchased the ProComp splined lugs, but they got rusty and crusty after the first winter.

Well after driving on them a couple times now i have a good sense of what's to come lol.

The road noise is loud but I'm ok with that. The gas mileage took a HUGE hit by almost 5 MPG lol. Oh well. Maybe because they are E rated they are heavy

I love em though.
