Escape 19 lug nut size

Hi all,
This may have already been answered but the search did not show any threads.
I have an Escape 19 with aluminum wheels. The stock lug nuts are already showing rust where the chrome is breaking at the edges.
I'd like to replace them with a better quality and add a locking nut on each wheel.
I can't find a lug size in the literature. Does anybody know if it is the standard 1/2 inch 20 thread size?
thanks

Yes, they are 1/2-20 Thread Size.
After doing a google search for recommendations, I replaced my lug nuts with these. I haven't had any problem with rust.

Great, thanks for your prompt response. I also appreciate the link....those are very similar to what I have been looking at but "guaranteed" to not rust.
Nice

thanks, I kind of assumed that the 1/2 20 thread was the lug only. Can I also assume that any replacement would be the same nut size?
I had kind of hoped so

The only lug nut that is a different size that I have found is the one attaching the spare tire to the carrier - I have to carry two sizes of socket because of that.
