The lug nuts are hardware used to keep your wheels attached to your vehicle. Getting the correct wheel nuts installed ensures that your wheel is safely and securely fastened. Since aftermarket wheels may come with different seat types or others, you would need another set of lug nuts to fit. Commonly, there are three types of wheel nuts: conical wheel nuts, ball wheel nuts, and flat wheel nuts. The conical lug nuts will fit wheels with conical lug seats, the ball ones will match ball lug seat wheels, and the flat ones to flat lug seats.

It’s crucial that the lug nut seat type and the wheel lug hole match. If they don’t, it’s impossible for the wheel nuts to safely secure your wheel and tires to your vehicle. Aftermarket lug nuts may be small components, but they offer a really big advantage. If you plan to enhance the style and performance of your vehicle, there’s nothing better than a new set of aftermarket wheels. If you would like to further improve aesthetics and safety, there’s nothing better than a new set of aftermarket lug nuts.
