Default Lug nuts for 11-14 BBS wheel

I want to get a set of lug nuts for my OEM BBS wheel. I want a set of black ones that look decent but dont want to skimp out on some cheap ones.

I was about to place an order for the McGard 65554BK :
Amazon.com: McGard 65554BK Chrome/Black SplineDrive Wheel Installation Kit (M12 x 1.25 Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels: AutomotiveAmazon.com: McGard 65554BK Chrome/Black SplineDrive Wheel Installation Kit (M12 x 1.25 Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels: Automotive
I know for sure they fit on the stock BBS wheels even though it is a tuner lug nut (or am I wrong?)

However I ran across these Rays and was told that it wouldn't fit the stock wheel:
http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Volk...Lug-Nuts-Black
"The stock wheels require the use of a OEM lug nut. The reason is the OEM wheels have a seat that takes a acorn style lug nut, where as all of the aftermarket lug nuts will use a 60 degree taper seat. As a result by using an aftermarket lug nut on stock wheels will not allow for proper wheel clamping." - Rallysport Direct

I read somewhere that Subaru uses identical seats to aftermarket lugs designed to fit our cars.

So am I able to use the Rays or not?

Before you make new threads, please search. There are 200 threads dealing with this topic.

Ignore the manufacturer, Subaru uses an identical 60* taper. If the lugs you're looking at have a tapered seat, they'll fit stock wheels.

Haha, I was actually looking at a post you made back in June. I just wanted to be sure:

Use aftermarket with stock, use stock with aftermarket. Any combination you can think of.
