    Hello,

    I have an SR with these little steel wheels below. I just bought a set of the black TRD wheels also shown below. Do I need to change out my lug nuts? I'm not worried about the color just the fitment.

    If I have to change them out, can someone point me in the direction of which ones I need to get?

    Thank you in advance,
    Faingo

    Great question. Looking at these wheels myself. Please post pictures when all is installed. I’m sure someone will answer the question soon. GL

    OP, if these are 16” there never going to fit so just box them up and send them to me. I will take good care of them for you.

    Lug nuts for steel should not be used on aluminum, The aluminum ones need a much wider lip on them to hold on the them

    The steel lugs have an acorn shape. Alloys need flat.
