BMF NovaKanes, 2011 F350 and Lug Nuts...Need Help

Hey all, I have a bit of an issue here, I have a set of Novakanes sitting in the garage and a truck due to arrive in the next few days. My issue here is I am trying to figure out which lug nuts to get. I have decided on the McGard brand, and I'm 99% sure I need the 14mmx1.5, but I don't know what I need for length. I have been looking at the install kit # 65810 which are a spline drive 1.945" in length, but they stick out from the hub kinda far (I borrowed a couple from the LTS of a knockoff brand to test fit). I am also looking at install kit # 84820 which I believe is 1.565" in length, but I am concerned that the studs might be too long for these nuts. I am trying to get an order in from the states since McGard seems to lack resale outlets in Canada, and I need to get the order in ASAP!

Thanks.

You must use the 1.945" lugs or the stud will bottom out and push the end of the lug nut off or may not seat the wheel properly. Not an opinion, but a fact based on years of experience. I also just in stalled Novakanes on my duty and the black 1.94" spline drive lugs blend well with the wheel. Here is an example.
