Default '94 Camry Lug Nuts

My friend who does a lot of work on cars recently helped me replace a rear strut on my 94 Camry LE 4 cylinder. He mentioned that I don't have the correct lug nuts installed on my car. I just purchased it a couple of months ago and the lug nuts do appear to be new.
He said that the tapered part of the lug nut doesn't sink far enough into the wheel holes and I need to replace them.
I went online expecting to find the proper ones but when I look at places like autozone, and other auto parts stores they have different ones showing up as being for my year/make/model car.
Does anybody know what the correct lug nut style is for a 94 Camry LE 4 cylinder? Assuming that the existing 14" wheels are stock.
Thanks
B

Can you post a photo of the nut on the wheel?

In the link below, part number 611-066.1 is the type of nut used. This is a standard design as in used on many makes and models of cars and trucks.

Wheel Nut | AutoZone.com

As shown in the link the taper can be wider or narrower. The rim itself is centered by the large hole in the middle which installs onto the flange on the hub.

Your nut appears to be something like part number 611-195.1 in the link provided in the above post to the Autozone website. This nut has a longer taper then standard.

The tapered part of your nut may be longer then a standard nut but the complete length of hole in the nut is threaded and this is was applies the clamp up force to the rim.

A standard nut has a length of about 0.57 inch with the taper portion about 0.18 inch long.

Check nut length and if nut taper is engaging the taper in the stud hole yet still leaving excess taper exposed due to the taper portion being longer. Check the amount of exposed threaded stud which is about 0.62 inches.

If the nut taper appears to be seating into the tapered hole on the rim, the nut length is as long or longer then standard nut (more or less), the exposed stud length is about the same as posted and the nut can torque up the factory specs of 79 ft-lbs the nuts as installed all should be Ok.

If you are concerned take one nut into Autozone, NAPA, etc. and ask for a standard nut not having what appears to be the longer taper as yours does.

If all above appears OK and my car, I would not be quick to change the nuts.

If the car has Toyota hubcaps having holes in them for access to the lug nuts the nut is somewhat like Part Number 611-073.1 having a capped end. This nut design is just cosmetic feature.
