Alloy on 3rd door mount

I picked up an extra alloy rim for the spare..the original steel with the original 27yo tire just doesn't cut it...I assume the studs are long enough, but would I need to use alloy nuts vs the steel nuts that are there now or the threads would be deeper in the holes and thus need alloy nuts...

Spare tire

Can't you use the steel nuts on the back side of the alloy rim to set hoe deep it sits on the mount allowing you to use either nut on the front?

I recall the same issue when I tried to mount my alloy on the door. I tossed it in the back till I got a swing away carrier. Maybe you could get a spacer to bump it out some.

You need alloy lug nuts and the thin little guys behind to get it in the right space.
