Same as 2014-2016 Mazda 3 lug nuts, e.g. M12.5X1.5 please?

Before I order these, want to confirm that is the correct size. Thank you.

Getting black Gorilla "locking" lug nuts which I have on two other cars (all twenty nuts on each). Thanks @arathol!

Oh ok. I have Mcguards on my MX5 and just put a set on the 3. The smaller diameter keeps the lug wrench from galling up the well.

@arathol, following your suggestion, I researched McGard, and the black ones I found (# 84538) are 1.45" in length, compared to Mazda's standard 1" ones. I am using Mazda's 18" dark alloy wheels.

Please, did you find another McGard option that has shorter than 1.45" lug nuts, or are your's that length? If the latter, might you have a picture of them on your 17" wheels please?

Thank you.

Regrets about the necro, but needed to know that they were: "...regular 60° cone seat lug nut, M12 x 1.5."
Thx much arathol! I am glad to be able to re-use the Gorilla keyed lug nuts from my Acura RSX-S that is soon to be sold (265K miles).
;)
