Default Lug nut help please

Ok so long story short, im painting my stock 06 WRX wheels and using them as my winter rims. I want black lug nuts to go with them, so what lugnuts can i buy that will fit? Because (correct me if im wrong) but all the "tuner style" lugs with a 60 degree taper will not fit right? I found these 3 sets here...

Amazon.com: 12x1.25 Black Forged Aluminum Wheel Lug Nuts 50mm M12 20 PCS 1.25mm: AutomotiveAmazon.com: 12x1.25 Black Forged Aluminum Wheel Lug Nuts 50mm M12 20 PCS 1.25mm: Automotive

Amazon.com: Muteki Black Spline Drive Lug Nuts 12x1.25: AutomotiveAmazon.com: Muteki Black Spline Drive Lug Nuts 12x1.25: Automotive

http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-BLACK-LUG...ht_1022wt_1037

So if i understand right, the last ones (the "acorn" ones on ebay) are the only ones out of those 3 that will fit right? Thanks in advance for any input.

All 3 of those have the proper seat and will work.

Get a set of Black McGard Spline Drives.
