Lug bolts: cone or ball seat?

Haven't had a chance to look yet, and our winter tires are on steel rims sitting in the back currently. Does anyone know if the OEM lug bolts are a ball seat or cone seat? Just wondering if we'll need new ones for the steelies.

Continental ExtremeWinterContact. I figured that they would be the best comprimise for driving around Toronto, since the roads are usually not too bad.
I'm pretty sure the steel wheels have ball seats so looks like we'll need new lug bolts. Oh well, at least they're not that expensive compared to everything else.

The ugly steel wheels that came off my Sport model had cone studs...exact same as the rest of the Cherokees.

Did you figure out what you needed for lug bolts? I'd like to get a set for my winter wheels, but I can't figure out exactly what size I need. Thanks!
