    I just recieved my new rims and while test fitting them I broke one of the rear wheel nut lugs, is this a easy fix at Toyota?

    yea just take the the drum cover off, hammer the old bot out, install the new one, hammer the drum cover back on carefully because the bolt will still be loose, and install the wheel carefully for the same reason. If the bolt gets pushed in a little use a couple screw drivers to pull it back out. go to pepboys and you can get a new lugnut and bolt for about 3 bucks.

    Well I am back from hockey (played a shitty game). I must admit I am having a lucky day, I skipped work today to drive 3 hours to pick up my new rims from Port Huron Mi USA, and the rims are perfect! (Thanks Franks Toyota!) I was driving to save UPS's Brokerage fees which were near the price of the rims, I knew I would have to pay duty and Taxes to get them back to Canada, but the Customs agent saw my Veteran Plates and gave me a great deal :D. After Hockey I went out and removed the wheel to check the bolt but realized I should remove the parking brake and the truck fell off the jack landing on the jack stand I rarely use, but tonight by chance I used it, lucky me:).
    I know I should always use them as I have a slanted driveway but usually just remove wheel for a second and replace with winter/whatever tires. Tomorrow I am calling Toyota to see if they will replace all my wheel bolts as they all look rusted under warranty, but if not I will buy a few extra.
    The good news is I love the new rims and my tires are in BFG AT KO. I have to get them mounted next.
