Aftermarket lug nuts for OEM wheels

The tire store buggered up my two piece OEM lug nuts. They're just a chrome cap over a regular nut and now I can spin some of them with my fingers. I hope I can get the dang things back off.
The problem is I can't seem to find any solid body nuts that look like my OEM nuts. I have found bulge nuts but my OEM ones have an integral flat washer looking thing right above the taper. Is this necessary or is this how they attach the fake chrome cap?
I have the OEM wheels so is 14mm x 1.50 bulge nuts all I need or is the flat part necessary. If so where can I find solid body chrome replacements? I don't see any on the Gorilla website that look like my OEM due to the flat. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Bulge nuts are required for aluminum wheels. It increases the seating surface. Here are some.

If there is a Discount Tire/Americas Tire in your area, they carry aftermarket solids pretty cheap.
