I didn't look but a generic warning: beware of closed end acorn lug nuts. The rear studs are very long and the lugnuts can "bottom out" before they truly secure the wheel. But they may fit just tight enough to fool you.

This happened to me and ruined one MT classic aluminum wheel and the studs and damaged the other side. Furthermore, I almost lost a wheel coming down the mountain out of Frackville. I got new studs (which were shorter) and lugnuts. But I just stay away from those now and my truck's no longer a "showpiece" anyway.

Thx for your reply. I just ordered my wheels and as far as lugnuts go I am gonna re-use the stock lugnuts and just put a center cap on the wheel to hide them. When I do valve stems I will just let the tire place do that.

Certainly that should be fine. Actually, the center caps often look good with aftermarket wheels of various types, and kind of ties them back into the trucks "Ford" theme.

Put pics up when you get them on!
