Why would the pattern affect the lug nuts themselves? There are 5 per wheel, you need 20.

That is not what he is asking

There are different thread pitches for the lugs vs other cars

Using proper terminology can avoid confusion. I know what he meant, but if people run around calling tires "wheels" then we would all get annoyed.

You'll actually need lug bolts if you have not done a stud conversion. Take a look at EAS's Mache Schnell products.
