Default Lug nuts

I just purchased some new aluminum ranger rims that are replacing the steel rims that originally came on my ranger. My ranger is an 02 xl. The rims fit fine, but will I need new lug nuts for the aluminum rims or will the lug nuts for the steel rims work fine with the aluminum rims?

If you put those rims on your truck the chrome lug nuts with the tops on them will look so much nicer

You're gonna need new lugs for those 5 spokes. 60* conical iirc. You can stop by your local ford dealer and ask them for lugs for a 03 or so ranger. I know fx4s had those wheels and the lugs you need

I'm not not too worried right now about the looks, I just wanna know if they'll work the same without any problems

i would just wait until you got the correct lugs. I'm not even sure your stock lugs will even seat correctly with the other wheels.

I know it looks terrible but my bed has a little rust hole, so I wanna have this one on to keep it from the rain and snow and whatnot till I get a new fiberglass one
