    Ok, so I've been searching the forum for about a hour now, and I just have a simple question I was hoping someone could help me out with.. I bought a set of 2nd generation TRD offroad wheels today for $200 to put on my 02 Prerunner, but they didn't come with lug nuts.. I plan on selling my stock wheels with their lug nuts together, and buy myself some new ones, which leads me to the problem of what length to order.. I know the thread size is 12x1.5, but I was wondering if I could use the 37mm length, or if I need to use the "extended" 50mm size.. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Unless you're going from steel to alloys, keep your lug nuts. I almost never see anyone sell wheels w/ lugs. That and Toyota rapes you for lugnuts, a full set will cost you $100+.

    My lugs from my TRD alloys fit my 2nd gen TRD wheels without any problems. Good choice on the wheels :thumbsup:

    I ran alloy wheels with steelie lug nuts for a while because I didn't know their was a difference...

    ...until I lost a tire at an intersection. Luckily it didn't hit anyone.
