Do car tire nuts and axle nuts mean the same thing?

Advantages of ball nut: The spherical flange can effectively increase the contact surface between the nut and the wheel hub, allowing the nut and bolt to generate greater torque and load force. Mainly used for off-road vehicles or tool vehicles.


Disadvantage: Because the contact surface of spherical nuts is relatively large, they are generally more likely to loosen or fall off than other shaped tire nuts.


Advantages of cone nut: The taper of cone nut can better fit into the groove of the wheel hub, making the nut and bolt more secure.


Disadvantage: Because the tip of the cone is at the entrance of the screw thread, it is easily deformed by the tool's impact on the imported thread, thereby affecting its use.


Cylindrical head nut, advantage: The biggest advantage of this nut is that there is a cap on the back of the nut, which can effectively protect the exposed threads of the bolt from external forces.


Disadvantage: Because the nut is blind hole (non breathable), the thread tension of the nut during production is much lower than that of the other two types. Therefore, as long as such nuts are used on tires, the number of them should be several more than other shapes, which is the reason.


Passenger car wheel nuts mainly include ball joint nuts, conical nuts, and cylindrical nuts commonly used in Japanese cars. May I know the advantages and disadvantages of these three types of nuts
