    Anyone know what locking lug nuts work on the 22-24 Tundras? I don’t want to pay $100 for the Toyota ones.

    Yeah I wouldn't get the Toyota ones anyway. My truck came with them and two of them stripped the head out when the dealer did the second tire rotation. They had a hell of a time getting them off and damage two of my wheels that they ended up having to repair and repaint. Did they strip out because they were over torqued? Seems likely.

    Take off your locks off before taking truck in for repairs or maintenance.

    I paid $85 for the set of Toyota wheel locks. The lug nuts have a unique shape as they are tapered and have a much wider diameter on the side facing the wheel with a washer integrated into the lug nut. I initially just went to an auto parts store and they had sets for $25 but none with the unique shape that Toyota is currently using. They had some that had the correct size thread but I didn't want to use them since they would have put a lot more stress on the wheel as they lacked the large tapered side.

    Smart idea!! I’m going to do that from now on. No worries then about getting stripped or losing the key. Thx
    I’m having no issues with the Toyo ones. Might try ordering online from your parts dept. (DONT walk in and ask-price is double) Might be cheaper than the price we paid for them with the truck.

    Okay so it sounds like the Toyota ones should be used over aftermarket like gorilla?

    I didn’t spend the money to just swap out stuff.
    I ordered the black ones on the black friday toyota 25% off sale for like $50.

    I've also thought that taking off the skid plate prior to any type of dealer/grease-monkey-shop service would be doing it the smart way.

    Are these like the ones I had on my Tacoma? A cover over them that will swell up over time? Had truck in for service and the dude brought out one of my lug nuts to tell me they couldn't rotate the tires because the lug nuts were all swelled up and couldn't fit a socket on them. If I wanted to pay 300+ for a new set of Toyota lug nuts they were going to be able to miraculously get them all off. Told him to take a hike and the price of the lug nuts came down to 250 or so. I ordered some black solid ones https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0B86HWCC1 ie=UTF8&psc=1 and did it myself. Toyota ones were definitely swelled up and difficult but I cetainly won't buy lug nuts with covers if that's the long term prognosis on them.

    edit. oops...sorry guess I strayed from the original locking nut question.
