Lug nuts?

I have an 02 f250 4x4 and I ordered a set of Dick cepek dc2 wheels. Do I need new lug nuts? If so which ones do I need there is a wall of them at the local parts store so I'm lost. Thanks everyone.

You need either 14x1.5 or 14x2.

IIRC 02 is 14x1.5

Factory rims are hub centric with flat lug nuts. What style of lug nut would you use on the superduties if you are running aftermarket wheels? Would aftermarket wheels be hub centric as well?

I ended up having to get 14x2.0, and they are acorn style lug nuts. They fit great, look amazing and couldn't be happier with the way it all has turned out.

So when you buy aftermarket wheels, are you pretty much forced to go with a lug centric rim and change to an acorn style lug nut?

There are a few, very, very few, aftermarket wheels tat are hub centric. So in short, you pretty much will go to a lug centric wheel if you go aftermarket. And doing so, obviously the the lug nuts have to change to center the lug. What lug depends on the wheel but I don't think there's much differences. When in doubt, ask the wheel manufacture. Most are acorn or bulge nuts.

A place like 4 Wheel Parts will be more than happy to first quote you $100+ for locking nuts, which it makes it easier to come back and charge you for $2 each for the nuts only, then mix and match what they toss in a bag so you get to drive another 20 round trip to get the correct nuts to properly secure the wheels that were just installed. Ya, it took 4 Wheel Parts 1 phone call and 1 trip to the store to confirm for me why for years I never cared for them based on friends experiences. I'm aware of more people that they've run off with their pompous BS than turned in to customers.
