Yes.

But the stock lug nuts are soft metal with a chrome cap pressed on-top. I find that they are easily damaged. You might consider replacing them with solid stainless steel lug nuts. Size is 1/2" x 20tpi ID acorn 3/4" OD with 60 conical seat.

Bump speaks the truth. The point he makes about the conical angle is critical so that you can achieve the proper torque value. Solid nuts good, OEM nuts bad.

McGard are the best. Don't fool around with Gorilla crap - they'll rust out on you in less than a year.

Thumbs down

^this is the Truth. It was more like 3-4 years for mine, but it begins w/ the lockable one which requires the keyed socket rusting heavily and I looked last night at them and they are toast after 4 years.
