Look at your wheels to be sure, but most likely you need "acorn" style lugs.

thanks for the response,

these definitly use the mag lug.

wierd thing is i think a little corrosion needs to to be cleaned up on the minilite wheel lug openings because a lug that will fit easily into one hole will not fit easlily or fit at all in the other.

one set of wheels are minilites and the others are westerns with the unilug hole and its hole diameter is definitely slighly smaller and oval.

nevermind

found what i needed at the local autoparts store standard mag lugs.

the ones that i originally had were actually bad kinda tweaked (over half of them) thats why they wouldnt fit through the wheel lug holes.
