I have centerline chrome wheels on my 78 El Camino
It currently has mag style lug nuts. I didn't realize that is the type that's on it. I purchased some conical chrome nuts to replace the other ones because they are rusty. Which style is better? Thank you for your help.

No need to answer. I'm buying chrome mag lug nuts, which is like the old ones.
The ones I got are a washer thickness shorter than the old ones. I put them on anyway. I'll have to drive it and see if they hold. Those will be short trips, and check after every one.

I have them on and torqued to 70 lbs.

The problem I remember was, that the lug nut goes through the rim, with a washer the nut won't go very far on the stud.
