Wheel Lug Thread pitch ? New Studs or New Lug nuts?

Well I have some 20" wheels off of a 2010 super duty and I want to put them on my 2000 for winter so I don't screw up my Eagle Alloy wheels.

I found a good deal on a used say of hub-centric spacers that were originally from (Fred) wheeladapter.com that were said to have come off of a 2003 F250. So I figured sweet $800 worth of adapters for $250, good deal.

So today I got around to installing them, had the torque wrench ready and I go to put on the included lug nuts and they are a different thread pitch. I want to assume that they are 14X2.0 because the are a fine thread compared to my stock 2000 studs.

What size are the studs on a 2000 F250? 14x1.5?

What would you do in my situation?

-Option 1 = buy new (14x1.5 ?) short acorn style lug nuts to attach the spacers to truck and use the (different size) included 14x2.0 lug nuts for the wheels and have two different thread nuts on the truck or....

-option 2 = Buy new studs for the truck to match the studs in the spacers, I think this would be ideal considering it would both simplify the instal and I have heard the corse thread pitch on the older super dutys is obsolete and has been known to have lug nuts loosen up over time.

Its Christmas eve and I don't think many store are open so I'm screwed there!

What would you do?

Marry Christmas!!!!

Personally, I'd just get some open ended nuts to bolt the spacers to the truck and use the others to bolt the wheels to the spacers

It's more than likely 14x2 but I'd make sure before I bought any lug nuts

Ya the nuts I have are 14x1.5 so your right on the 2000 studs are 14x2. Just left advanced auto and they suck, don't have them.
