    Does anyone have a link or know where to buy replacement lug nuts for the 17" sport rims? The OEM lug nuts are crap, and no lug wrenches will fit half of my bolts because they have warped or something (even though to the eye they look fine). I only found this out when I got a flat on Monday and couldn't take the wheel off because the lug wrench wouldn't fit half the bolts. -Not fun.

    I've since gone to three different auto part stores and tried 5 different lug wrenches and none of them fit all the bolts right (either won't go on at all or too much play), and none of them had replacement nuts for the TRD sport.

    If anyone knows of a place to by replacement lug nuts for the TRD Sport please post a link. Thanks!

    Yeah, that seems like the only option I have right now. But I'd really rather get some good ones than the cheap lug nuts Toyota appears to be using. I'll just end up having the same problem every few years, having to buy new lug nuts because of just rotating tires. That seems ridiculous. Surely someone knows a place that sells decent after market lug nuts the correct size for these wheels, right? Anyone??

    I just picked some up from ebay. They seemed to fit fine. I don't have any long term durability testing with them though since I just put them on a couple weeks ago. Let me check and see if I still have the seller's name.

    ok, I found the seller. It's "tuneshop". They had decent prices and free shipping so I thought it was a good deal.

    The stock lug nuts are a nut inside a nut which is what causes the warping and sockets not to fit. I bought the replacements from discount tire. SO MUCH BETTER!

    buy them from Wheelers off road!! i just did this about 3 weeks ago. my offroad used the shorter ones. your sport uses the long ones. to tell you the truth, when i got the wheelers ones, i googled the partnumber and found them cheaper elsewhere. but like an idiot i didnt save the link for any of you.

    Wheeler sells them for $4 each. tacoma dealership will ream you for $10 each. and the wheelers are gorilla lugs which are not clad with that stupid ass chrome sheathing. no more issues.

    here: (i found the other exact nuts for $2.80..i think...maybe order 6 and get the part # ?)

    here is a pic of my wheeler's lugs. if i had a complaint, it would be that the washer fell off of a few lugs. not a biggie unless you get some pimply wheel tech that loses one someday. haha. again. i think my offroad edition uses the shorter lugs..the shaft section is the same, but yours should have the longer nutted portion.

    Ok, great, thanks! I just ordered them from . I did some searching online, and the Gorilla part number is 73138TXL for the 17" TRD sport rims. I could only find these extra long ones on a few websites, Wheelers was cheapest. Except for a pack of 50 on Amazon for around the same price as 24 on Wheelers. I'm thinking it's a mistake maybe. But they also have a 5-7 week shipping wait. I could have tried that, but honestly I don't need any more than 24, and don't want to wait two months to get them, and then have a bunch of extra lugnuts I don't need...
