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.
