    Make sure that, if they are hub-centric, the hub bore is for a toyota and not a chevy. Chevy wheels won't fit toyotas unless you have a shop bore them out.

    Hub-centric wheels use the whee; hub to center themselves. Lug-centric rims are centered by the lug holes.

    12mm x 1.5 is the thread and pitch.

    They can be whatever length you prefer (standard or long). I would go with closed but it really doesn't matter, whatever you like.

    Her truck didn't come with conical seat lugs? (I don't know much about 1st gen stock wheels)

    WheelersOffroad.com has an excellent selection of lugs nuts btw.
