    Hi guys,

    After a bit of searching the net for some black lugs and wheel locks after buying conical wheel locks without washers... lol should have checked first.
    i found what i think is the correct 2 sets

    i believe our wheels use lugs with the following specs:

    Wheel Nut M12-1.50 Mag - 21mm Hex, 38.5mm Length (WITH WASHERS)

    Someone please correct me if i am wrong.

    based on that i believe this lug set:
    https://www.amazon.com/24pc-Black-M...rd_wg=XqhJm&psc=1&refRID=XCQ520FJRP3R46A21EY9


    and this wheel lock set will have me set with all black hardware?

    https://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automotive-73631TBC-Alternator-Harness/dp/B00YJJ4N10

    i dont know why it has "alternator Harness in the name at the end lol...

    Rule of thumb I tell people when searching for lugs is if your center caps are notched(most OEM Toyota wheels are) you will need OEM style or Mag seat lug nuts.
    If the center cap is round(aftermarket and TRD faux beadlocks) you will need 60degree conical seat lug nuts. Good luck.

    I bought some black lugs from 4wheelparts.com and got a letter in the mail saying I was sold the wrong ones. Had to go get them replaced. Make sure to check in with them if you bought a set at their stores

    Wheel locks only come in a set of four. Regarding the second link.

    Awesome! Thanks for that link and the Tpms sleeves :thumbsup:

    My only confusion though with all lock sets like that is why bother? If some seasoned or prepared wheel thief comes around with a handful or backpack full of keys as long as he has one that fits he's going to get them all off.

    You could say people take the 5 normal lugs off then grind off the lock?

    Basically.... Why'd you choose to get all locks? :rolleyes::)

    No BRO-ness to speak of... Well, except Kbro2's
    This is awesome... Driving around with the wrong lug nuts on and the geniuses at 4 wheel parts send a letter. That's a quick way to contact some one. "Hey, should i call or email this guy who's wheels are about to fall off?".... "Nah, send him a message via pony express... time is if the essence!"

    I went with that set because that's what others on here have used on the same wheels I was getting. Also, I looked up some regular black lugs, and it was going to cost me the same price more/less for 20 or 24 regular lugs and/or one set of locking lugs. Figure I might as well get all locking lugs if they're the same price (or less on eBay). Plus Gorilla is a reputable brand.

    Also, a lot of times the locking lugs are slightly different looking than the regular lugs... My OCD was not going to stand for that... One lug on each wheel that looks different... Yeah, hells to the no!

    So those RAYS lugnuts are made of aluminum? Doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy putting them on a truck.

    and the sexy tpms sleeves and caps because why not :rofl:

    will have to wait till i get some new tires to install those i guess :rolleyes:
