    I just got these Eagle Alloy series 185 wheels in 15x10. I also got some new acorn style lugnuts but they dont seem to grab a whole lot of the wheel studs. I dk if its just me worrying or if I need to go with a different type of lug nut. Any advice would be great, TIA.

    Gorilla #41138ET lugs are probably what you need. I just ordered a set myself for my new wheels. I had to leave the center caps off until I can change them. They're on the bottom of page 5 (page says 8...???). You can order them with a 13/16" head on them (page 6) but 3/4 allows you to use a regular socket, on my wheels anyway. I found Brandsport to be the cheapest online.

    Acorn bulge style long or conical, the stock Toyota lugnut is 13/16th's. I don't know if that's enough information, let me know if you need something else.
