Default Sprocket nuts - slim ones?

Hi Guys, I'm cracking on with my rear end swap and doing the dry fit and alignment and things are going petty well apart from the closeness of my rear sprocket nuts to my swinging arm. I'm using stainless nylocs but I could do with something slimmer, any ideas?

I was thinking standard nuts and locking washers, or standard nuts and thread lock, is there another option?

Also with all the parts I have and they are a mix of makes everything is aligned but from my initial measurements the new rear wheel is offset to the Right ( brake side looking from the back) by 2mm. I can't move it over to the chain side by 2 mm because of tyre to chain clearance & chain to frame clearance, will this be a big problem.

Here's some pictures because I know we like pictures.

Do they clear as is? Even if it’s close it may be fine. Otherwise I would do regular nut with a split washer and some red locktite. But I am ok with overkill on critical parts

I have seen low profile nylocks but I don’t know if they are strong enough since they couldn’t have too much thread

Cheers, yes they clear as they are now but if I move the wheel back, for when the chain stretches they catch on the bolt heads that hold a thin metal spacer to the arm so Ideally I could do with more clearance. I agree that slimmer nylocs wouldn't have many threads.

I would think low profile nylocks would work, but I haven't seen any in metric sizing.

Are the studs removable from the sprocket carrier? If so it would be possible to hold the sprocket with bolts instead of nuts, and if you are so inclined the heads of the bolts can be safety wired for that "track ready" look.
