    Hey guys, first post here. I've been looking at this site for a long time now for a lot of good info but am having a hard time finding an answer on this one.

    I just got a set of general grabbers AT2s mounted on a set of 2010 16” TRD offroad alloys that I bought to mount on my 2011 regular cab 4x4 that has steel wheels. Did not realize the lug nuts were not interchangeable.

    The tire shop tried twice to get me lug nuts that would work; both sets would not work. One set the shank was too long, the other was too short.

    Decided to go OEM and get the right lug nuts; however, dealer wants $6 per lug. Not an option.

    Found a couple sets on eBay that I think will work but there are two sizes: 37mm and an “extended” 50mm. Which size should I get?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/24-TOYOTA-O...fits=Model:Tacoma&hash=item2a2e185e51&vxp=mtr

    Please help! I unfortunately saw the new wheels and tires on my truck and it looks amazing. But I've had to watch them take them off twice now and go home with the steelies and leave them at the shop. :( I cannot mentally deal with doing that again haha.

    Thanks Guys!

    I would look in the classifieds here or post a WTB. (Want to buy). I sold a spare set that way. The 1st link lugs look too long. Someone will hook you up. Welcome to TW.

    Thanks, man. I just want to get these things mounted, looking for the quickest but still correct solution.

    From pictures I've seen in classifieds sections, it looks like it'd be the shorter 37mm ones. But the guy at the tire shop showed me a correct toyota lug nut for my alloy wheels (that was stripped but they just happened to have lying around) and that one looks to be similar to the longer 50mm one.
