Can I re-use the stock lug nuts with new Rugged Ridge wheels?

I'll be replacing my stock Rubi wheels & tires with 17"x9" Rugged Ridge wheels (and 315/70R17 Duratracs) in the near future. Will the guys at Discount Tire be able to re-use the stock lug nuts when they mount, balance and install the new tire/wheel combo, or do I need to buy new ones? I think I read somewhere that the stock lug nuts might be too thick; true?

If I need to buy replacement nuts, which ones would you recommend? Some good quality locking ones, I suppose?

Thanks for any input!

I used some black (gorilla maybe) spline drive nuts that looked good with the black rugged ridge wheels. What color are yours?

I got the flat black with machined lip ones; they're looking sweet! Good point about the color of the lug nuts, though. Maybe some black ones would go better with my RRs, too.
