    Guys, hoping you guys can help me find the right lug nuts.
    I bought a set of 2012 Tundra 18" steel wheels (OEM) to use with my snow tires.
    I know that these are lug centric so I need to get Acorn style lugs, which are different from the lug nuts that are on my alloy wheels.

    I know that these require m14 x 1.5 (please verify this for me).
    But do I need the short ones or long ones?

    Guys that have steel wheels or took them off and replaced them, can you take a lug nut off and post a photo of them for me so I can see what ones I need to go buy? I don't want to buy them from a dealer and pay dealer prices so I want to find aftermarket ones.

    Thanks a bunch, your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, but I want to use these for my snow tire setup. I don't want to expose the lugs to all the salt that is used here in the winter. I just want to get a set of acorn's for my dedicated snows. Just need to know what to buy.

    Will someone with some steel wheels just run outside and take a pic of a lug nut for our man here? It'll take 3 minutes to get one off!!!

    Capped lug nuts may be even worse than open, I had to drill down the center of stud to pull wheel. Tracking down solid lugs that don't require 22mm socket is almost as difficult. IMG_0154.jpg IMG_0157.jpg
