Looks decent...keep in mind those are conical and won't work with stock wheels.

Yeah I was going to go conical for my aftermarket wheels, and pick these up for my OE wheels with winter rubber.

Seems options are pretty limited for 14x1.5 r13 ball seat lug nut.

Found these but $45 for a set of 20.

There are also ball seat washers that adapt cones to balls, but I don't love that idea if I am swapping them from cone to ball twice a year. Any opinions on the ball seat washers? They'd only be used with OE wheels, so no hub rings. May not be so bad. I just imagine the washers seizing to the wheels or lug nuts.
