Default Inexpernsive Lug Nut Recommendation

Considering replacing lug nuts on all four wheels of my 1999 XJ8 and looking for inexpensive brand recommendations, eBay links or whatever you might be able to offer.

Thanks

I'm not sure, did not know there were long and short ones, they are closed end tapered base, silver colored not chrome, and stock originals on there right now.
This weekend I can pull one and provide measurements.

X308's did not have wheel nuts with tapered base as stock original. Do you have aftermarket wheels? these are the short and long stock nuts:

The short ones are available on a special-order basis from Advance Auto Parts. I don't think the long ones are. They are admittedly not cheap at 12 bucks each...... If you only need one or 2, that's OK but all 20 would be insane.
I would also like to know of any other source for these. I don't need any right now, but with the weird way that aluminium cap fits on the lugnut one never knows.
Watching........

There are many sources, you just have to look...

https://www.welshent.com/Search.aspx?k=lug+nuts

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products?utf...aguar+lug+nuts

https://www.terrysjag.com/SRCH.html?Search=lug%20nuts

...as I recommended to someone else, if your short on cash, do one side at a time, no one will know the difference. When you get the mula, you can buy the other side.
