Are steel wheel lug nuts same as alloy lugs?

    I bought some 15" SR5 alloys to replace the steelies on my '97, and I want to know if it uses the same lug nuts?

    Look at the wheel and see what the mounting surface looks like.

    Hmmmm... Do the lug nuts you have now taper down at the bottom, or do they have a flange/ washer around the middle of them? Toyota alloys need the ones with the washer. (I just went through this a month ago when I bought some stock 15" alloys to replace my bent up aftermarket wheels)

    Same goes for the pre-2005 5-lug factory alloys ... They have a flat mate-up area for the lug nuts, and you need to use the OEM 'shank-style' ones.
