Series vs defender wheel nuts

Hi all, just bought some rims and tyres for my 74 Series 3, have fitted one and the studs are a bit short.. It looks like the taper on the new rims (green in the photo) is different to the original. Any ideas on whether getting the right wheel nuts will enable a switch over to the new rims without replacing the studs? I assume the new rims are from a defender, can anyone confirm from the photo?

The rims you have bought are ROH Australia from a late SIII, SIII-Stage 1 or Australian assembled 110. They have slightly longer studs to the early SIII.

Given the colour I would assume the new rims are from an ex-Army SIII.

You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.
