Very doubtful... What powerplant do you have???
One big clue would be engine
rotation... If rotation would "tend to tighten" the nut on a normal right handed thread... i.e CCW from the rear... No way would they cut it left handed... The reverse is a possibility...
(edit: I think I mean CW??? crap too early! LHS of cars drive lines are sometimes LHT, and lug nuts used to be LHT before the 60's)
