This is one thread I found about lugnuts. https://blazerforum.com/m_115526/tm.htm

According to Kyle our trucks use M12x1.50. There is a link in there that takes you to a site with different sized lugnuts. However, there are a few different types. Cone Seat, Cone Seat bulge, Cone seat duplex and cone seat spline drive. Hopefully someone else has some more info. My wheels had these awful center caps that I took off and the lugs beneath are ugly (to say the least.) I have been thinking about either getting new center caps or buying new lugnuts and leaving the caps off

There are several styles that will fit.
the best place to get the right lug nut is the dealer of a tire shop. I don't work at the tire center any more, however they has books that wil tell you which lug nuts work on your vehicle.

and to answer your question.

Yes it makes a difference which lug nuts you get. They have to have the right pitch, threads, and seating surface. Seating surface will change with the wheels. Aftermarket wheels have recommended lug nuts too.

See your dealer of tire shop.

I went and got some lug nuts today, I think it turned out nicely. IMO, it looks better than before. I recently took the center caps off to clean/repaint and I started to like the way they looked without the caps. I got them at AutoZone. Most of the lugnuts they have there are 12x1.5 and there are a few different "seats" The ones I got said Acorn style cone seat. Before I left the parking lot, I put one on to make sure they fit.



I didn't even realize it, but I the package came with locking lug nuts as well. The middle one is the locking one.


Old lugs


New lugs



This is how my wheels looked before I swapped out the lugnuts


and this is it now

They rang up for $29.95 but the tag on the shelf said $17.95. I guess they must have left an old tag up or it could have been in the wrong place. I showed the tag to the guy at the counter and he changed the price so I only had to paythe 17,95
