Good to know. I wondered why they sent my a set of lug nuts even when I didn't order them though I didn't see a note about not using them with the stock wheels. I ordered a set from Amazon because I'm not going to use the factory ones - had of enough hassle with them on my former '02 Focus even though the new ones appear to be slightly better design (the "cap" wraps around part of the nut where there older ones did not, which allowed the caps to come off, which many of them eventually did), it's just stupid for them to be designed with "caps" in the first place.

I run the Sumitomo ice edge on 15" steel wheels. They are great. I also ran the altimax arctic which were great as well.

I use the same lugs on stock wheel as I do on the steel.
