    Have done a ton of reading and it took me until today to figure this out completely and make me happy.

    Bought ProComp wheels 17x8 for my new Tacoma, got given your standard lug nut (conical for off road wheels). Was not thrilled at the centering and thread engagement when I tightened them up. I got 4 full turns but i would prefer a little more, and it seemed I had to make more turns than I was used too as i tightened the wheel to 90ft-lbs. Also it seemed that the lugs had a lot of threaded space remaining behind the conical seat.

    Kept reading about wheels and tires and came across an Amazon review about ET (Extended Thread) Lug nuts for these wheels and immediately knew that they were probably what I needed.

    https://www.amazon.com/12x1-5-Close...1&sr=1-37&refinements=p_6:A2A65CUIZM9PM8&th=1

    So I ordered a set and will be installing them shortly. I'll report back if they in fact seem better.

    I'm willing to bet that a lot of people on here will be wanting to change their lug nuts on their after market wheels to something with this shape. Should avoid the pinching and wear you can get as the wheels tighten.

    I believe this setup along with the very tightly matched Bore on my ProComp wheels vice my toyota (108 vs ~106.5) will give me an OEM quality Hub Centric Mount up all around. Agree? Disagree? Anything wrong with my logic? Hope this helps someone like me somewhere trying to get everything right.

    I used gorilla lug nuts e/t long shank from wheelers off-road. They put my
    Pro comp wheels where they should be. I've had zero issues and they came in black. Also a plus that you can order individual lug nuts so it's easy to get the exact number you need, plus they had the best price I could find.

    Great that apparently some people knew these were the right lug nuts. My local shop didnt seem to have a clue about it. But i also got 3 1/2-20 lugs out of the batch that were supposed to be all metric so go figure. Gotta take care of every little thing yourself.

    From Wheelers:

    These nuts are a little harder to find at tire or parts stores, they feature an extended thread section/centering barrel that increases thread contact and helps center the wheel even better than a standard acorn style nut. Not all aftermarket wheels will be able to use this type of nut with the extended thread section/centering barrel, check the dimensions in the image to determine if these are correct for your wheels.

    What is the proper lug nut thread pattern and lug style for our factory wheels?

    Thank you. Going to replace the silly chrome lug nuts on my Pro. Why Toyota didn't include black ones baffles me.

    Sucky that I have to buy two sets though to get the 24 since they are sold in sets of 20. Ugh.
