Are they different for the steel and alloy wheels i.e can the capped alloy wheel ones be used on the steel wheels i.e do they torque down correct or do they become thread bound?

I did a search "wheel nuts" and that did not work! That thread was a drag to trawl and did not really give a conclusive answer to the question of "do the standard Suzuki alloys and steel wheels need specifically capped and uncapped nuts?

Oh ok sorry I could have sworn it was mentioned in there. Senior moment. As far as I am aware for the factory steel and ally rims they often seem to have the same nuts when I have looked at them. Don't know what difference aftermarket wheels will be. I also don't know if Suzuki used different length studs on different years or between models with and without factory ally wheels.

Wheel nuts did have a mention on page 5 but it was specifically about wheels other than the Suzuki variety. It mentioned the 60 degree mounting face but as the alloys are thicker than the steel rims I am wondering if the capped wheel nuts will bottom out on the steel rims to the extent that they seemed to be tight but not to the correct torque nut to hub as opposed to nut to rim. The car is a 2002 model by the way.

Without measuring it with a digital caliper for your actual car I can't be absolutely certain one way or another, like I said I'm not sure if Suzuki used the same length wheel studs on all years and models to say definitely yes or no.

60 degree sweep is correct only jakkata wheels have the strange nut
Mickt are you swapping from alloys to steels
If yes the essayist way to see if your captive nuts will work
Is remove a wheel and screw a nut onto the stud if it goes all the way down
with lets say 1-1.5 mm gap it will hold your steel wheel fine

My steel wheel nuts has a shorter cone than the alloy nuts. So my steel wheel nuts should not be used.
But yours might be long enough.

I've never had an issue with capped nuts on standard studs.

I've got longer studs on the front, so I've had to buy open nuts.
