    I had a flat tire last week and was surprised when two of OEM the lug nuts were so "swollen" that I couldn't get the socket to seat.

    I've read some threads on here about swollen lug nuts with the two-piece OEM parts, so I'm looking to replace the entire set on my 2014 Tundra Limited Crewmax. I have the 18" factory alloy wheels (see my profile photo), and I'm trying to navigate the world of Gorilla Auto for lug nuts that will (a) not swell and (b) will fit my wheel / lug studs. (I tried messaging the Gorilla Auto people to determine the proper size / part, but no response.)

    What lug nut part numbers have you found to work well when replacing the OEMs?

    You want the ones on the bottom right, 73148txx chrome or 73148txxbc for black chrome for the factory alloys.

    I am not associated with gorilla in any way, but that’s what I bought when I owned a tundra.

    Are these two-piece nuts still prone to swelling?

    The ones I bought were better than oem. The oem ones seemed to be more susceptible to salt and winter.
