    I just purchased some TRD Offroad rims from a friend. He gave me all the lug nuts, but 4 of them are the anti theft nuts and unfortunately he didn't have the key.

    I don't even want to deal with the anti theft lug nuts, so I searched 3 local auto parts stores and a tire shop, and not one of them could find the lug nuts I need.

    I've looked online to no avail. Not going to the dealership until I have exhausted all other options.

    Does anybody have some extras that they would like to sell? I will buy a set of 20 if you don't want to split them up, if your price is reasonable.

    I am looking for the hub centric type, they have a washer on them, they are not the "acorn" type.

    You need the mag style nuts. Gorilla makes some for sure, but for local availability the dealer is probably your best shot.

    Look these up on Amazon:


    White Knight 5309DL

    I needed a few myself, a couple are beat up from winter/summer changeovers across a few years. So I just ordered these. Haven’t received them yet, but the description looks promising.

    I've bought a few from the Dodge dealership when I had my Ram and Discount messed up a couple of my wheel studs. I don't recall them being that expensive. I would assume Toyota's pricing on lugs would be similar.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Here's what I am up against at the moment... $14.85 at the dealership PER LUG NUT :puke:So, those White Knights are looking pretty good right now at $15 for four.

    Really I was hoping to get lucky and have someone with a set from their take-offs that they would be willing to part with, who knows maybe somebody will happen to have some.

    I got my wheels for a killer deal, so I was trying to find a cheap way out. I am committed now so those White Knights look pretty enticing.

    Wow....It's been a few years, but I could have sworn they were only a couple bucks each at Dodge....maybe I'm wrong. Sounds like White Knights might be the best option unless you can find some takeoffs. Good luck!

    The acorn type for the steel rims were considerably cheaper and sold in 6 packs (WTF Toyota?), the hub-centrics were the rip offs though... The nuts that I need, go figure ha.

    I have 20 lug nuts that are just sitting in my garage. The guy I bought my BBS Pro wheels from gave them in with the sale. Can you send me a pic of the lugs you are needing? If they are the same, I can possibly sell the extra set to you.

    Well crap, my phone is out of data apparently, and no wifi, but they look identical to the lugs in the White Night link that gdiep posted above (thank you @gdiep).

    Received the 4 lugs from White Knight that I ordered. They are close to OEM, but not exactly. I’m using these on my winter setup, so the slight difference isn’t an issue for me. OEM is on the left.

    One thing you may want to look at is the diameter of the lower part of the lug nut that protrudes through the rim. Keep in mind, these are hub centric and the inner diameter of the lug hole in the rim must very closely match the outer diameter of the lower part of the lug nut. I can't really tell from the picture, but the auto parts store I went to had a similar-looking lug nut with the wrong diameter at the base. They looked very similar though.

    Measured them with my caliper. They are the same.
