Hi guys would someone be good enough to post a nice clear picture of an original lug nut for my new deep dish rims for my 77 Town Coupe? Thanks!

Here's one from the deep dish wheels I have for sale. Not a super pic, but it might help.
I just purchased new open end conical lug nuts from Lug Nut Guys https://www.lugnutguys.com/

Just found a nice set of Alum. alloy Deep Dish Wheels for my 76 with steel wheels. Do I need to get the lug nuts too. Make sense but Lincoln don't make a lot of sense a lot of the time. What else should I get ?

Thanks

In case anyone is interested, McGard makes locking lugs that will fit under the center cap of the aluminum wheels. I have them on both of my Mark Vs.

Suicidekid63, are these the nuts you bought?- 20 Open End 3/4 Hex Bulge Acorn Lug Nuts 1/2 or did you get 13/16. I want to put them on my 76 Coupe with my new Deep Dish Wheels.
Thanks

Ok, thanks SuicideKid63. The replacement nuts seems shorter than the old nuts. Any problem with that?

Thanks,
