Lug Nuts questions

Question in lug nuts for my new M3 18 aeros. Took the covers off and added the caps. Decent look but would prefer closed lugs. A few questions.

1. I've known the OEM lugs were open but my question is why. Looking at the back of the aero covers it doesn't look like they attach to the lugs at all so why have them as open ended nuts? Is that to dissuade people from removing the covers? Just so ugly lol.

2. Want to get an after market set but have seen so many people contradicting one another on here about what's needed and what's right. Anyone have a set they'd recommend for the 18 aeros that they've personally installed and used for a period of time?
