    Hello,
    Sorry if this question was answered previously someplace. I bought used factory 16" wheels off ebay to replace my steel wheels on my 2011 base tacoma 4x4. I plan on getting some snow tires for these and run them in the winter and keep my original steel wheels and tires for the summer.

    Do I need new (different) lug nuts for the aluminum wheels? If I dont run TPMS sensors, will it case a problem other than the annoying light that will come on?

    Thanks for any help

    Yes you will need shank and washer style lug nuts for the alloy wheels.
