A lot of after market wheels require smaller diameter lug nuts to reach down into the center of the wheel because most after market wheel are probably a lower off set. To achieve low offset manufactures put more material on back side that mounts to the hub because to achieve low offset (+12 in the picture) there is only so much curve they can put into the spoke before there is a structural issue. Also these being forged steel makes them extremely strong and will not strip from over tightening like some aluminum ones do I don't have many picture of my car but I hope it helps At $130 you could buy 2 sets on amazon so I doubt there will be anyone buying these

Forged Steel means it will not break on you if you're using a car for track events. Due to braking, the wheels/brakes/hub gets super hot and putting a lot of stress via vibrations from road imperfections can lead to micro fractures that will eventually snap off cheaper lug nuts which would cause your wheel to come off as you're driving through corners or if you happen to have a hard impact with something on the road. If you're spending $2000-4000 on nice forged wheels, you're not going to be putting cheap lug nuts that would put your wheels and safety in danger. That said, all this doesn't matter if you're not driving a high performance car in the first place.
