Default What lug nut do i need for this wheel?

A mechanic told me I need a longer lug nut because of the type of wheel I have. I think because it is a thicker rim.
It was hard to understand exactly what he meant because we have a language barrier. Lol
Any insight into this situation?

There are pictures in the Wheel album on my profile. I'm new to posting, I hope that works.

ok, from what it looks like, not enough of the nut for the lug wrench to make a secure grab, I have an oem part#40224-ZP50A which meet your needs...

Hey thanks for the reply, yepee! He was able to get the nuts off easily with the lug gun-thing but I could imagine it would be harder with a wrench. Maybe that's what he means

if you google the part number I posted, you should be able to see the difference between what you have and what I believe was suggested. The longer nut will keep the wrench/socket away from your wheel, which means no marks on your wheel

can't tell what the wheel looks like but if you remove a lugnut and there is a tapered seat than you can use pretty much any acorn base style lug nut, if there is no conical seat and just a hole than you need the type of lug nuts with a longer shank and a washer.
