    I got a set of 18x9 moto metals and need to get some lug nuts... i know that the factory acorn style wont work so i need to find some place to get some online. Any opinions on what kind i need and where to get them are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Most aftermarket wheels use conical seat lugs (acorn). If your stockers are conical-seat then you should be good to go.

    The other type of lug nut is a called a shank and washer lug. I know the TRD offroads have those, not sure about the sports.

    Wheelers offroad has a huge selection of lug nuts for tacomas.

    Ok thanks man... i was looking on there site and seen these

    There the E/T spline drives... my wheels will be in monday so ill see if the stock ones will work... i was told they wont becuase of the lug well not being big enough to house the factory nuts. If its a no go im going to end up ordering these. Seems like wheeler offroad is very popular and well know company!

    Yeah if the lug hole is too small, spline drive lugs likes the ones above are the way to go.

    E/T's are also a good call. Tacomas are known for having very short wheel studs.
