Default Help with lugnut fitment

Hey all,
So I wanted some new lug nuts for my 08 Bullitt, as the originals had some play between the threaded part and the top hex.

I ended up ordering this-
Gorilla Automotive 71683NBC "The System" Acorn Black Chrome Wheel Locks (1/2" Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels : Amazon.com : Automotive Gorilla Automotive 71683NBC "The System" Acorn Black Chrome Wheel Locks (1/2" Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels : Amazon.com : Automotive

thing is, when i went to install them, it didn't look quite right. the bevel of the new lug-nut seemed to match up to the wheel, but still there was an apparent size difference. anyone here run these?

heres some pics I got

Wow.
Those are slim profile 'TUNER' lugs.
They are ment to fit inside
a deep pocket on those riced out 'tuner' cars
that require them.
I dont see your rims pulling out around them
if you can stomach the looks...

Why don't you talk to one of the guys at American Muscle. I'm sure they can steer you in the right direction.
