You have to look at your stock lugs versus the Duralum lugs. Duralum lugs have an angled surface, and it is not secure on wheels with flat bottom in the holes.

Digitonium is correct. The stock lug nuts are shank style, not conical. Rays lug nuts are conical.

stick to the stocks ones for the stock rims.........if you want...i can show you what happens when you mix the 2....it's pretty ugly to see...the rims ripped off and the lugs which were still on the bolts.
