Default Wheel Spacers

Hello all. I recently installed some spacers on my blazer. I also run some on my 2010 MINI Cooper S but the mini uses bolts rather than the lugs and nuts. I'm questioning whether I should've used the stock lug nuts on the spacer lugs to hold the wheel or use the stock lug nuts to hold the spacer to the hub. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I ran the spacer nuts on the spacer and factory/aftermarket on the wheels. I had aftermarket locking nuts with my wheels so they wouldn't work on the spacers. I believe the spacers nuts were also the same taper as the spacer so I would have ran them that way even with factory lug nuts. I put a little locktite on the spacer nuts for good measure as well.

Thank you Rex. I will swap them out at some point.

2nd...Spacer nuts on the stock studs to hold spacer on. Then whatever lug nuts you normally use to hold the wheels on normally can be used on the studs built into the spacers.

I have ran adapters for 5 years and had several different lug nut styles to hold the wheels on but always used the spacer nuts to hold the spacers on.
