Lug Nuts

I have a 2012 Laredo X with the 18" wheels. I am getting them powdercoated next week and want to get black lug nuts to match. From all the research I've done, I've drawn the conclusion that they are 14mm 1.5 acorn bulge (correct me I'm wrong). The brands I've checked out, McGard and Gorilla have option that's say they fit but when I compare them to the stock lug nuts I have they look very different. It seems the stock ones have somewhat of a crown to them. Thoughts anyone? Here are some pictures of what I'm talking about.

Stock: 6509422AA

Gorilla 71643NBC

Gorilla 91147BC

Both of the Gorilla's appear to be slightly smaller than the stock ones (obviously 1.50 vs. 1.40) and they don't have the "crown" at the bottom. Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Lug Nuts

I installed the 71643NBC ones. They are much thinner than the stock ones but work just fine. I am however thinking on switching to the 91147BC to fill the hole in the wheel more. They do set off the look really nice ..... 18" wheels by the way ...

Thanks for the response. That's what I was thinking too. It's nice that all the nuts are locking but they look a lot thinner.
