    I but a pair of stock Tacoma rims off c-l without Lug Nuts not knowing that the rims do not use the same lug nuts as my steel wheels. Does anybody know what type Lugs do this type of rims use? By the way that is not my Tacoma..

    Are the steel wheel lug nuts the same high-quality *cough-cough* lugs as the Aluminum Mags?

    Picked up a new Access Cab, and wondering if I will be replacing the stock lug nuts on these steel wheels...

    Who would have imagined that Toyota lug nuts would be such poor quality, at least Aluminum Mag lugs...

    If by that you mean not a solid chromed lug nut, but a thin chrome cover pressed on a regular lug nut, then yes, I think so. I sold mine with the wheels a couple years ago, but seem to recall that's what they were.

    Thanks.
    Your right, seems like the only thing missing are the rims.

    Currently planning on painting the steelies black...upgrade to 255/85s at the same time :)
