Lug Nut Size HELP!!!

I have a 2008 Tacoma double cab 4x4 4.0L with TRD offroad package. I am looking to get new lug nuts (rounded off one) and want to go with black since I plan on painting the rims. Need help on what size to get to fit the OEM alloy wheels. PLEASE HELP!

It will be a 12mmx1.5 shank style. You can get the OEM style ones on ebay that are supposed to be better than the crappy ones that came on it. I just ordered these as they are designed like the OEM ones and should work for the spare steely but they may be hard to find in black. Gorilla makes some black ones but they won't have the beveled end like these. Just make sure you get the shank style and not acorn.

I was thinking about getting these too, may I ask what makes you say they are better than the factory ones?

They are a solid one piece nut where the factory ones have a casing over the actual nut that can deform, expand, and even twist off over time. And they are cheaper and should still work with the spare steel wheel since they have the little beveled edge.

great thanks, i'll be purchasing these right now then, they are cheaper than pretty much anybody even selling used ones on here, unless they are giving them away!

Yeah I almost bought a set on here from a guy because I thought you needed them for the spare. After more research I saw these will work for the spare. You should call the dealer and ask what they charge for them! It's crazy.

i've read they charge like $6-8 per, but even autozone charges $2 per nut, which I think is already too much $$$$, I just bought the ones you had listed on ebay, THANKS!!

i would think those would fit, but keep in mind that acorn style is for the steel wheels, the aluminum wheels would use the shank/mag style, and i'm not sure about aftermarket

For aftermarket Aluminum wheels, you need the Gorrila Spline Drive Extended Thread Lug Nuts. We have them in both Chrome and Black.

For Factory Alloy Wheels, you need the Factory flange style nut with integrated washer.

They are available in black now?

And here I was thinking the only thing that would make my truck blacker was a bucket of KFC in the passenger seat. I'll be calling shortly!
