Question about aftermarket lug nuts

So I’ve searched both here and the fb group and can’t get a concrete answer

Ok everyone, I could use some guidance here. I was test fitting a set of different aftermarket wheels today and one thing I noticed was the lug holes on the wheels are much smaller than the OEM and my Zink wheels.

OEM lug nuts are 14x1.5 21mm socket
Zink lug nuts are 14x1.5 22mm socket
The aftermarket wheels (Asanti ABL-27 in this case) came with 14x1.5 19mm lug nuts. The oem lug nuts (21 mm) do fit inside the holes but the socket BARELY fits and thats a thinner one that the plastic sleeved ones you see being advertised for lug nuts

So the question for all you people with aftermarket wheels, are you running 19mm lug nuts ? It seems to be the common size for most aftermarket wheel lug hole openings.

Are the 19mm safe ? I am curious if they can withstand the weight of the model Y and have enough threads to secure the wheel properly to the car.

Any insight would be very much appreciated.
Thanks
