    I'm picking up a set of aluminum wheels for my tacoma. Right now I have a set of steel wheels on my wheels. Will I need new lugnuts...? If so, where do i get them and how do I know which ones to get?

    Just make sure you polish the aluminum often. I have had aluminum wheels for 9 years and I wish I would have gone with chrome. I have had to polish them twice a year - sometimes more. If you stay on top of it they will look great.

    I would highly recommend Wolfgang aluminum compound followed by wolfgang aluminum fine polish and if you want a ton of shine follow with concours plish.

    After that follow with concours metal sealant. It will make them stay clean twice as long.

    I just use a soft microfiber towel and elbow grease.
