Acorns or bulge acorns?

I am looking at some Gorilla lugs for my SVT wheels and am not sure if I need acorns or bulg acorns. Is anyone for sure of whether these wheels can use either or both?

Regular acorn, 60 degree taper lugs are what you need.

OK, bummer. Sick of looking at banged up or rusty lugs from taking them off and back on so much. I was looking at either these bulk Gorilla Automotive 41188 Acorn Bulge (1/2 in. Thread Size) - Box of 100 : Amazon.com : Automotive or their lifetime ones which only come in Bulge acorn.

Look somewhere else, Gorilla does make the lugs you need.

Try summitracing.com

And you sure don't need a box of 100!

I know they make both, but only make the lifetime finish in bulge for some reason. The box of 100 was so I could just throw them out as they got banged up and not sweat it due to the bulk cost. Just over thinking it as usual...

Check on amazon. Best prices available...also, you might look into the small diameter ones to prevent scratches inside the lug holes. Good luck.

Amazon is where i found the above. Also, I have a full set of the smaller diameter "tuner" lugs from my XXR wheels but they look too small for the SVE wheels which seem to have larger holes for the wheel studs.

Gotcha. Might check with SVE to be 100% sure then.
