    So, I have a 2016 SR5 Crewmax 4X4. It came with the steel wheels. Found a set of stock aluminum wheels on Craigslist for a good price. Put on some Michelin LTX AT2's in LT 275/70R18 (don't know why 4X4 trucks come with highway tires).

    Anyway, I had to buy some new lug nuts for the aluminum wheels, my tire dealer got them for about $3 each (Toyota wanted nearly $10 each!!!). Will the new lug nuts for the aluminum wheels work with the steel spare, or do I need to carry 5 of the old lug nuts with me?

    Thanks

    why risk it? you already know the lug nuts are different between the two. I'd just toss them in the glovebox and go worry about something else.

    The ones for the aluminum wheels have a captive flat washer where they meet the wheel, the ones for the steel wheels have a taper. The tapered ones definitely won't work on the aluminum wheels, but I'm wondering (without trying it) if the ones with the flat washer will fit on the steel wheels. I would imagine that all Tundras come with a steel wheel for the spare.
