Help with lug nuts for MT Classic II's!

Can anyone post up a link to the exact lug nuts they bought with their MT Classic II's? I need to get another set as I can tell the set I have now is bottoming out. Or if you know the size you bought, 1/2-20RH but what length? Mine are developing little rings that are starting to push out like the stud is too long. Want to get this fixed asap!

I know the MT rims are different than some rims as far as the thickness of the mounting surface of the rim against the hub. I'm not sure though. I just don't want to waste another 40 bucks for lug nuts after I already have once. Wanted to make sure the lugs will fit on these exact rims without studs bottoming out.

The studs are longer than the lug nuts are deep. So when you fully tighten them, the stud almost pushes a hole through the end of a closed end lug nut. Which is what is happening with mine.

Odd, I've got the edge five spoke rim lugnuts on my MT's and they work perfect. Look nice too.

Save some cash and cut the studs =]

Well I had the teardrop wheels which were the brass open in lug nuts. They would have looked horrible.

I think I'm going to go buy these lug nuts. They are the longest I can find, at 1.625in.

Bought some lug nuts today, conical seat 1/2-20 made specifically for longer truck studs. Fit just fine. It's crazy that auto part's places don't keep more than one pack of 4 lug nuts in stock, so ofcourse I had to drive around town needing more than one pack per store.

The stock lugs that came with the edge five spoke work fine for me! *as posted earlier*
