Do I need different lug nuts for aftermarket wheels

I swapped out a set rims but did not take into consideration the seat, since most I see are the cone type seat.

The OEM nuts were a ball type nut while the aftermarkets were likely conical. I torqued everything and took the car out before I left.

Should I just use a aftermarket lug nut set?

I would swap them, you want as much contact as possible to prevent them from loosening up as the wheel flexes and expands/contracts from heat.
