The R40 are long and will stick out. Go for the R24. They're shorter than the R40's.
But if you're spending $240+ on lug nuts I would think you want them to be more exposed such as the R40's. I was close to getting the R40 Neo Chono's too but I chose not to ball out on lug nuts.

I say do it! let them stick out... I had the NEO Chrome on my HRE's b4...

How much they stick out also completely depends on how big your back pad is and how much is exposed. Majority of the time, the rear stick out more than the front due to the wheels being built for BBK Specifications... Most staggered wheels set ups have larger backpads on the front wheel creating a "deeper" lug pocket making the lugs sit in more.
