Default Wheel Lug Question

I ordered BBS RK Wheels for my '06 Outback that are the exact size (17"x7") and offset (48mm) as the OEM wheels. Can I re-use the OEM lug nuts and wheel locks? This may be a dumb question, but sorry.......

Almost all wheels use a conical seat, like the OEM lugs. The only problem is in some deep-seat wheels where you can't fit a socket around the lug. In that case, you'll need a "bulge" or "tuner" style lug nut.
