I had studded Hankook's mounted to a set of factory 18" wheels. What I hadn't considered was that the short lug nut from the 19's wouldn't look very good with the exposed threads of the stud showing.

I went to the local parts store for a new set of 14mm x 1.50 lug nuts, but found that they had a narrow tapered seat that barely contacted the wheel. The stock wheels have holes that are much larger than the studs, so the seat on the lug nuts are wider to accommodate the fit.

If I can't find an aftermarket lug nut for this application, I'll have to get a set of the factory lug nuts for the 18" wheels. Anyway, I wanted to give a heads-up to anybody considering this change, so hopefully they wouldn't use a lug nut that didn't offer a secure fit.
