No! You can't, The stock lug nuts are too fat! You'll need a M14 1.50 lug nut. Trust me I tried and it didn't work.

Weird because the stock lugs work on real ZL1 Wheels.

I guess it depends which brand replicas? I got the Factory Reproduction Style 41 and they say you can use the stock wheel lug nuts

They do work on Factory Reproduction's wheels, style 41 (ZL1 replicas). The LG wheels or any other manufacturer I can not speak for, but if I had to bet, I would say they accept the factory lugs. When in doubt, call the manufacturer for verification.

actually they don't fit correctly, the seat for the lug nut on the Factory reproduction wheels is narrower than the the OEM wheels. If you use the factory lug nuts they will be jammed against the upper edge of the seat and not in the seat as they should be. They could be more prone to coming loose. If you want chrome lug nuts, FR sells a chrome lug nut for these wheels. FR said when I asked them, "think they fit" and they don't.
