    I've read on here about the difference in acorn style lug nuts and shank style nuts. I've found that the threads on the studs are 1.5x12mm but I don't know what style lug nuts I need. My new wheels are the Baron from Ultra Wheels..

    Be sure to test fit and measure the stud exposure.

    If your thread engagement is not equal to the diameter of the stud, you risk stripping and breakage. If that's the case, you need shanked conical nuts that reach through the wheel to grab the stud.

    ^^ I'll keep that in mind
    Is it just me or are Toyota wheel atuds extremely short? On my 03 2500hd Chevy the studs were way longer.. But that might've been because it was a 3/4 ton
