    Will the stock lug nuts that came with my TRD alloy wheels work with the Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels? If not, what nuts should be used?

    most aftermarket wheels use 60* cone/tapered lugs. my recommendation is to buy a set of spline lug nuts. they provide the most clearance around the lug area.

    i personally use spline lugs and i've had no issues whatsoever with them. within the last 6 months i've taken my wheels on and off about 10 times. there's no signs of wear or cracking. they're hand torqued every time.

    if you trust gorilla acorn lugs, i see no reason why you wouldn't gorilla spline lugs. they produce quality products. stay away from the cheap crap and there shouldn't be any issue.

    Does anyone know of another source for the gorilla lug nuts besides wheelers? I placed an order with them today and they are backordered for the next 1-2 weeks.
