Lug nut holes look tight on AR Chamber Wheels

Well the boxes arrived today with new Teflon chamber wheels (15x8). They look great, but I can't help wondering about those lug holes. Damn they look small. Am I going to need a thin walled socket along with new lugs?
I got home late today and I won't start the project (body lift and tire/wheel swap) until Sunday. But I need to make a run to the store tomorrow for torch fuel, so if needed I can get the socket and nuts as well.
Anyone who has chamber wheels remember if they had to buy a thin walled socket and new lugs? If so any suggestion on the lugs?
Maybe save me from having to test mount a wheel?

Thanks in advance,
Pete

Open up the box, check out the lug nuts - chances are with the set you bought, they also supplied a special socket adapter to fit on the lug nuts - I can pretty much guarentee there will be one there.. I know I have one with my Ultra Baja's and there special thing socket thing they use.

I bought my AR Chambers used but I have special lugs and lug nut tool. Basically they are like locking lug nuts but all 20 are like that. The tool for them just fits in a tire iron like a lug would.

Thanks guys. I'll open up the rest of the boxes and see if I worried about nothing.

Sweet, the bag of lug nuts was in the last of the 5 boxes I opened. I was mumbling some choice word after the 4th box though. My regular socket fits in the wheel with no problem. So a little tape on that puppy and good to go. Well this day is starting out good.
They are just your standard lug nuts, not the spline side or locking. Works for me.
