Icon4 lug nut help

ok so i have crager steel d-window rims and i bought some cheap-o lug nuts off of ebay for the rims. i torqued all my nuts on and when i went to take them off, the end of the lug nut had crimped onto the wheel stud and it stripped the threads of the wheel stud. seems like the taper of the lug doesnt match my rim. so now i need new studs which is no problem. my question is this, what kind of lug nuts do i need to buy to make it work with the d-window rims. i see that gorilla has a ton of different kind of lugs
thanks
luc

You normally buy them by application. In other words, a Ford Ranger. I have my box so I'll get you the part number.

thanks, i dont mean to question your knowledge, but the taper on those lugs look the same as the ones that didnt work on my wheels. it might just be me though. theres only a light taper on my rims and those are at 60 degrees i believe. i just want to be sure so i dont buy them and then ruin my new studs...again lol

I don't see why they won't work though. That style is recommended for both steel and aluminum wheels.

By the way, that is the part number for the locking lug nuts. I also have the part number for the regular lug nuts too. I would have to get that one tomorrow. You could also just search for the same style.

Looked too small and design seemed like it could trap water in on backside. Plus I just thought the factory center looked better.
