    The wheels I'm going to purchase require different lug nuts because our stock ones are too fat. When looking at purchasing new lug nuts, there are three options:
    1. 1/2" -20 SAE thread size
    2. 9/16" -18 SAE thread size
    3. M14x1.5 Metric Thread size

    As well as these other options:
    M12x1.25 Metric thread size
    M12x1.5 Metric thread size
    M14x2.0 Metric thread size

    Which one of these will fit the 5 lug taco?

    Any help will be appreciated

    pretty sure they are 12x1.5

    Go to a parts house like Advance Auto. They often have studs mounted on a rack. Take one of your lug nuts in and verify fitment.

    FYI .. I just received the above lug-nut set from Amazon.ca. Appear to be of good quality. They will be going on my aftermarket rims, when i receive my 60.1 to 73mm adapter rings. At present, i'm running my stock lug-nuts .. but i also need to carry a socket-set around with me in case of a flat-tire - the stock tire-iron wouldn't fit in the small holes of the aftermarket rims.

    My hub centric rings just came in the mail today. My old man's friend, the person who put on my wheels and tires, said your wheels will vibrate like crazy and the lugs can possibly come off if you don't have hub centric rings that match your vehicle's bore width. Couldn't find 60.1 to 83.06mm if my life depended on it so I had to order from a website that makes custom hub centric rings. which was pricey :(

    That is an odd size for hub-centric ring adapters, indeed.

    I have run my aftermarkets for some time without them, but since the suspension upgrade went on (last time rims were removed) i've noted a mild vibration in the 110-120km/h range, smoothing out again > 120km/h. I'm betting one of the front rim assemblies is ever so slightly off-center when put back on.

    No lug nuts missing so far.

    I had to get aftermarket lugs for my new wheels. Same size, 12x1.5, but it has to have a 60 degree conical seating. Did you get new wheels? Or do you still have the current ones on your rig

    Still the current Aftermarket 16x7 with +40 bs.

    Waiting for the first snows to hit, to see how these wheel-sets work out - I might replace with different rims and tires, if current rubber isn't up to the task, going with a rim-set with +10 bs and more aggressive tread pattern, this time around. I was playing with the idea of spider-trax spacers.. but it seems like a compromise that might well not be the safest.

    Gotcha! Where do you live that snow might be a big issue? But me know how it works out! I avoided the wheel spacers and went with a wheel with a very low offset to give it some stance.

    Southern Ontario - generally we don't receive a whole lot of snow overall, but we do receive a few dumps throughout the winter from Lake-effect squalls. Black ice is actually a bigger issue than snow remaining on the roadways after a storm clean-up..

    And yeah .. i'm thinking offset .. not bs .. I mix those two up all the time.
