    Are the studs on the base model 08 4x4 the same length as the studs on the TRD OR model?

    I gave my buddy my OR wheels and they are trying to tell him he needs longers studs before they even got it on the lift.

    From what I understand he just needs the flared lugnuts for the aluminum rims since his are for steel.

    Yes he needs the factory aluminum wheel lug nuts then they'll work. Have him order these then go back and put them on himself with a jack not hard to do.

    He needs the oem (square not acorn) lugs with the washer. Generally known as shank style lugs.

    Also if this shop looked at his acorn lugs/steelies and told him he needs new studs instead of new lugnuts he should avoid going back.

    They would have installed longer studs and then fucked up his nice alloy wheels with (incorrect) acorn lugnuts

    I am the buddy that @drewbert41 is talking about in this thread. I took my truck to Farm and Fleet where I bought my tires to have this work done. I expected that I would need new lug nuts. I called them this morning and they told me they had plenty in stock. When I got there, their tech who obviously didn't want to do the work to begin with insisted that my studs would not be long enough even with replacement lug nuts so I would need both new studs and lug nuts. They were out of the lug nuts that they told me they had in stock this morning. So I left with nothing.

    Farm and Fleet also claims I need tpms sensor rebuild kits or something like that at a price of $5.99 a tire. Does this sound accurate? I went ahead and ordered the lug nuts @ovrlndkull suggested from Amazon. Thank you for that!

    Go some where else. Do you have the tires mounted on the OR wheels already or need them mounted to the wheels? If you take it to a Discount Tire if there is one near you they will rebuild those sensors as part of the mounting and balancing of the tires onto the wheels. Yes rebuilding the sensors is the best practice every time you mount tires. There is a little rubber O-ring and the schrader valve that can eventually leak over time.

    The tires are mounted on my stock steel rims so I need them mounted on the OR wheels still. I'm totally onboard with going elsewhere. We don't have Discount Tire but I might try Tire Barn. Yes we live in the middle of a corn field. ;) Thanks for the feedback!

    Kit has new rubber washer, core, nut. They last a long time but the rubber washers can crack. Some tire shops may require them as part of the road hazard warranty to ensure you don't get a flat during the warranty period. Look up Denso 999-0601 tpms kit. They average $5-$7 each on Amzn.
