    I know its kind of a stupid question but I ordered some Mickey T's for my 98 1/2 ton and want to know what kind of lug nuts I need. Basically Im not sure if I need the regular cone seat or the bulged cone seat lugs.

    Yep I just ordered them, I knew I needed acorns but there was a choice of either regular cone seat or bulged cone seat... I went with the regular after talking to a buddy..

    The bulge lug nuts are used when the lug nut is recessed into the wheel. The socket size for the bulge nuts is smaller than the socket size for the regular ones so it can fit into the wheel. You'll be fine using the regular lug nuts with MT wheels.
