Spare tire lug nut recommendation?

Finally getting to putting on my Mantec tire carrier and realized I gave away all my spare lug nuts. Figured I should get something nice for the spare anyways (stainless?) and possibly locking. Anyone have any suggestions? I've got Freestyle wheels. I don't have any special sockets (just the lug wrench), so something easy to put on would be ideal.

Also, I'm sure this is documented elsewhere, but what is the nut size and thread?

I always use what I'm running on the axle to retain the spare, so I have spares for the axle wheels.

Pick up a few more lug nuts and go to Harbor Freight and get a deep-well 27mm impact socket and a breaker bar. The factory lug wrench is useless and will bend with almost any stress.

Or if it's cheaper you can rock the 1 1/16" socket (instead of the 27mm)...which is what I have since I used it with the Series (which is SAE).

A link I saved to new lug nuts

I swear locking nuts either seize solid or the owner loses the key.
