Wheel nut size

I am looking black wheel nuts for my cars black wheels.
On Ebay the nuts are coming up smaller width than the standard nuts 24mm where the ford nuts are 28mm.


These are the standard nuts the tapper is the same 60 degrees


Will it be ok to go with the smaller nuts or should i look for nuts that are 28mm width seem to be hard to find.
Dont fancy watching a wheel roll down the road pass me.

Personally, for alloy wheels, I would be looking for a black version with washer of the lower photo.
The washer saves a lot of wear on the wheel when taking on and off and in my experience, less likely to come loose and does less damage to the wheel itself if it does.

Speak to Ford, they use to do a black version, and probably still do.
Wouldn't go for the smaller ones, as they look to be for steel wheels, and will dig into your alloy.

You need to make sure the wheel nut matches the original nut removed. If it's not correct then the wheel won't be secure and could come off. I've been at work when a customer swapped their steel wheels for alloys and used the steel nuts. Needles to say they needed bodywork, tyre and new brakes after a trip down the motorway!
What wheels are they ?
