    The Tacoma uses a 1.50 pitch thread.

    Depending on the wheel used. Some take the 14, and there are some other sizes. Thats why I only listed the thread pitch. tooo many other variables. :)

    Stud size is the same, but they have different lug size, and types based on the wheel used. The size you listed is for steel wheels. A 14 x 1.50 is a common size for aluminum wheels.

    I'm having a similar issue with my lug nut choices right now... I bought procomp 7089 16X8 wheels for my 05 taco and dont know what lug nuts to buy... i want black lugs and the only ones i can find are the gorrilla acorn ones but everyone keeps suggesting the spline ones... so i dont know what to do either and didnt know it would be so complex.... wheelers offroad carries spline polished chrome ones with spline socket $41.95 or the black gorilla acorn ones $30 but i dont know what to order.
