Default 12x1.25mm vs 12x1.50mm

Hey guys, just wanted to know if i can use 12x1.25mm nuts on Is250, given that oem is 12x.1.5mm.

I bought a set of Nissan wheels and it comes with longer nuts and i'm sure they are 12x1.25mm.

No, those numbers are the thread pitch and are not interchangeable. If you were to try a lug nut with the wrong thread pitch on your studs it will cross thread and damage the studs.

I knew that might be the4 case. I got two other sets to fall on. One is my originals and the other is a set when i bought my last aftermartket wheels and which the shop put them on for me, I assume these are the correct nuts.

they should spin on easily by hand all the way down, if so, you should be good (though sometimes a slightly larger lug nut will do this and still not be correct)
