    I just bought 17" FJ rims to put on my 05 Tacoma, but the mfr who sold them to me failed to tell me they take special lugs.:eek: Guy @ tire shop said they go down in rim farther and have a key. Can someone send me a pic. I called dealer and parts guy was clueless .:mad:

    did you have steelies on it before?

    They're called "shanked"

    I did have steel 16" rims. Best place to buy? Dealer wants $150-200. Why do they all come in sets of 5 or 20? I have 6 lug rims...

    No idea, just how it is!! I have a million in my garage.. But that doesn't help you!

    You could try a local auto parts store, they're usually pretty reasonable!

    I would look up the spec's of the lugs.. They might be able to match "OEM Toyota alloy lugs" but I honestly have no idea if all shanked lugs are the same or not. I feel like it should be pretty standard..

    I wouldn't go paying 200 bucks for lugs though, that's insane.

    Those wheels should take the same shanked lugs as stock aluminum tacoma rims ... Like these 12 X 1.5mm

    Yes those wheels should take the factory Toyota lug nuts in the picture above. I would try your lug nuts that came off your tacoma. With the wheel off, place the lug in there and see how it fits.

    I didn't know he has steel wheels, I guess you should post what you have bud. Front what I've seen a have dealt with on all my Toyota's, they have all needed the mag seat type of lugs because the studs are short compared the other manufactures.

    With alloys you need to use shanked nuts. On Toyotas anyway!!

    Other brands of rim are different sometimes. You can use shanked lugs on steelies though

    Those are FJ alloys he bought and is trying to find lugs for ... The lugs I pictured are the lugs for those alloy rims

    I just put 4 FJ SEMA wheels on my truck ... Those are the lugs pictured

    The ones I used aren't as dirty as the ones I took a pic of

    :D

    Carry a lug wrench with you and when you see an FJ with the right lug nuts take one off each wheel till you have enough for all four wheels, might take a while but at least they will free. JUST KIDDING. I got some lug nuts on Flea-Bay, I believe they were Dorman lug nuts.
