Ugh I didnt realize your post about thread pitch. And I didn't realize there were different pitches with metric. Thought everything was fine thread. So I'm scrapping the idea of using the toyota wheels and just wait a bit for some tires. I'm tapped out at he moment.

They are two different thread pitches. Toyota uses M12X1.5 for their lug nut studs. I know what you mean about needing that style of lug nuts, though. My camry has aluminum wheels and uses a similar (if not identical) lug nut. The threads are both M12 diameter, if nothing else you could probably get a set of studs for a tacoma and swap them out to make it work.

OMG! Could you imaging taking your vehicle to a tire shop that has all of that data on file? They would be mounting your studs with their air wrench, not know about the incorrect pitch, and completely fook-up every stud on the vehicle before realizing something was wrong.

Man I wouldn't ever bring an entire vehicle to a tire shop anyway. I always pull the wheels off and just bring those over. I don't want those guys torquing my lugs to 300ft lb.

Yeah, I could see that lol. I mean, the best solution would be to find a set of those lugs with a 12x1.25 pitch instead, then you could use the ones that are already on the truck. Most tire shops will charge labor for changing tire studs so you'd probably be better off doing it yourself anyways.

The holes aren't beveled in the toyota rims. I'm afraid that I would crack them if I torqued them down. And as they get miles they may just work loose

I wouldn't recommend that. Funny enough I broke a stud off last year and they didn't have the oem style nuts at the parts store so I ended up buying an acorn type nut. It only goes on about 4 threads so effectively I've been driving around with 4 lugs for the last year.
