Just received new winter wheel/tire package from TireRack. My existing lug
nuts are conical and fit nicely into the OEM alloy wheels. The lug nuts do
not seat into the new winter wheels. Seems like a flat lug nut would hold
wheel better. Two Ford dealers could not locate a lug nut to fit my steel
wheels. Can the original conical lug nuts safely be used?
It was always my assumption that lugs were required to be conicle to
make sure the wheel is centered propoerly. Otherwise the wheels will
wobble up and down like a clown's bike. LOL
