It seems like that part number should do the trick, but just running into some mixed messages on varying sites. Any help would be appreciated.. thanks!
There are 3 kinds of lug nut "seats": Cone, Radius, or Shank. Our OEM lug nuts for the steel wheels are Cone seats. Toyota tends to use Shank seats for their alloy wheels. Naturally the thread for each lug nut (Cone or Shank) will be the same, M12 x 1.5 metric thread.

Toyota will charge you more for their lug nuts but you can get the same thing on Amazon for less cost.

Shank Seat wheel locks:


(I put these on my 2005 Toyota Camry LE V6 which came with OEM alloy wheels)

I went with Gorilla "the system" kit.

Amazon.com: Gorilla Automotive 73633T "The System" Toyota Mag Wheel Locks With Washers (12mm x 1.50 Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels: Automotive

Much more affordable. Plus each one is a lock as well. Wheels look great on my box.

Cool. Looks great. Gorilla ought to offer this system for Cone seats, not just Shanks.

One caution: I have a wheel lock on each wheel, plut spline drive lug nuts on the other 4 lugs on each wheel. I found out that the spline drive lug nuts, while more secure than regular lug nuts, use common keys. In other words, anyone else who bought spline drive lug nuts can take their spline key and use it to loosen my spline lug nuts. That's why I also have a wheel lock on each wheel. So unless your system has a Key that is unique (if so, Gorilla should have a registration card or something that is unique to your Key), I would also consider wheel locks.

Of course, I've also seen cases where people run around for years with OEM allow wheels and regular lug nuts and no locks and they never had a problem. It just depends where you go and who else happens to be there. And how paranoid you are or aren't....

Thanks Brick... These have a lock key, so each one uses the same key. Five locks per wheel instead of one. And there is a registration card with the code for the key and replacements. Pretty good for my peace of mind. Cheers bud.

Cool. Sounds like a good system, 5 locks per wheel. Very secure!

...and a search on Amazon reveals that Gorilla does offer "The System" for Cone seats:




Some reviewers complained about surface rust after 6 months but they seem to be the exception.
