Can anyone advise if the wheel nuts from a standard steel rim be suitable for a alloy rim to suit the 200 series
Thanks

No, you will need alloy wheel lug nuts

The consequences of getting this wrong are significant.. it would be worth being very certain of the requirements of your rims with regards to the nuts - especially if they are aftermarket rims.

It depends on the alloys you use. For OE the type shown above are correct. For others the steel wheel ones may be correct.

You should consult the manufacturer.

Some alloy wheels have countersunk holes and use the nuts Bob has shown above and some alloy wheels have a steel insert pressed into them with a tapered seat and use the same tapered seat nuts as steel wheels. So best do your own research so you you get the correct ones.
