Gorilla lug nuts - to fit ATX Mojave

I was thinking of getting some Gorilla black lug nuts to go with the Mojaves I intend to buy.

http://www.gorilla-auto.com/lug.nuts.page_07

I was looking at the "bulge XL" in black on the above page.

Are the Mojave's tapered seat, and if so what angle? (very hard to find technical info on these wheels....)

They're tapered. ...and, there are different angles?

Cool, just like the steelies.

Yes re different angles, though maybe 'Merican trucks/cars are all the same?

Uh, why don't you just ask them for the ones that fit American Racing Wheels Mojaves?

Ask who? Typically the wheel manufacturers specify what type of lug nuts will work.

I guess I could ask ATX what shape/angle lug nuts they require, but ATX is very hard to get information out of.... hence this post.

Yup, 60deg angle is what you want for ATX and most other aftermarket wheels.

The angle is not from american vs euro or something like that, it's simply hub centric vs lug centric, lug centric needing the angled lugnut. By default Ford trucks are both, (hub & lug) but I think Dodge / Chevy are only hub which is why you would use a flat nut on those trucks. I'm not sure about all the different angles used, but I know just about all aftermarket wheels are 60deg.
