    I will be replacing the factory wheels on my '09 PreRunner next week with these: https://tinyurl.com/y54znmhw

    I would like to get some black lug nuts to match the wheel. Forgive my ignorance, but what type would I need? I know the OEM style are Mag Seat style, but I don't know if that's what I would need for these. The wheel size I'm getting is 17x8"/6x139.7mm, 0mm offset. Would these work?

    Yeah what you linked works, what you want is acorn (closed end) bulge (the taper seat bulges out past the hex, handily keeps your socket from rubbing the wheel).

    I prefer to keep the 21mm hex, because reasons, but there's also a decent chance you'd end up needing a thin-wall socket if you did, or you might not be able to fit one at all... so a 19mm hex would win in that case. Just remember your stock lug wrench won't work anymore if you buy 19mm ones... preferably before ending up on the side of the road with a flat.

    Great! I'll have to pick up a 19mm lug wrench then. I appreciate the help.

    Just remember to keep a stock set of lugnuts if you still plan on using your stock spare.

    As long as you have a steel spare, regular cone seats should work fine... that's what you get with steelies anyway.

    True, but if you look at the lug nuts they recommend with that wheel it says not for use with OEM wheels.

    True, but if you look at the lug nuts they recommend with that wheel, they're also M14 instead of M12... so I'm not exactly trusting anything there at that point. That's why I find good part numbers and then check them on Amazon when buying car parts... their cataloging blows.
