Sport wheels need diff. lugnuts?

I bought a set of 96 sport wheels for my 96 nonsport. Last night putting them on I noticed that the lugnuts (that came with the car) barely went past the caps. They would actually touch the caps as the seating surface of the lugnuts went past it. So I hand tightened them past the caps and down onto the wheel then torqued them down like normal.

Did the sports come with lugnuts with smaller diameter seats?

If so anyone have a suggestion on what lugnut to use (brand and size please) the ones on the car are kinda beat up due to someone taking them off with a loose socket and an impact wrench.

I used the stock lug nuts that came with my 15" rims with no problems.


It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!
