Default Lug Type ?

I bought a set of 18s and they say the 'Lug Seat Type' is 'Conical'. Ok I admit I don't know a hole lot about this, but what's the difference between 'Acorn' and 'Conical'? Can I still use my chrome OEM Lugs?

Acorn refers to the head of the lug nut. Simply put if there is a hole all the way through the nut it is NOT and acorn nut.
Conical refers to the seat end of the lug nut and the taper inside the wheel.
Your factory nuts whould work just fine.

Same thing. Yes, the factory lug nuts have the 60 tapered (conical) seat that is just about universal these days. Years ago there were some aftermarket wheels made that used lugs with a straight shank and a washer but they are not commonly seen today.

the weld wheels still require these lugs(and longer studs). they'll end up on my mustang sooner or later. they strip out after i use them 2-3x and i hate them.

Im betting you will need splined or tuner style lugnuts as well. Most aftermarket wheels have holes that the factory nuts won't fit due to hole size. They are also available at most auto parts stores.
