The most common size of the Tacoma lug nuts on a 1995-2023 Toyota Tacoma (N100/N200/N300) is M12x1.5mm while the thread size of a 2024-2025 Toyota Tacoma N400 lug nut is M14x1.5mm. When talking about what lug nuts fit my truck, figuring out the lug nut seat type that the wheels require is the first step. Most OEM Toyota wheel nuts are flat seat types with washers.

But some aftermarket wheels come with 60-degree conical lug seat types. In this case, you have to replace the stock nuts to fit new wheels. Using the correct lug nuts on your Toyota Tacoma TRD is very important to ensure the safe and reliable installation of the aftermarket wheels.

What is the Lug Nut Torque Spec on a Toyota Tacoma?

The REFERENCE torque spec on the lug nuts on a 3rd/2nd/1st Gen Toyota Tacoma is 113Nm (83 Ft-tb). It is worth noticing that the REFERENCE torque spec for the latest 4th Gen Toyota Tacoma wheel nuts is 131Nm (96 Ft-tb). Set the torque wrench to the manufacturer’s recommended value. Then simply turn the wrench handle until it reaches the torque mark.

Then, tighten the wheel nuts a quarter turn at a time following the crisscross sequence (in a “star” pattern). This ensures that the Toyota Tacoma lug nuts are forced evenly. When all the wheel lug nuts are properly torqued down, you will feel a click around the head of the wrench.

Do Toyota Tacoma Lug Nuts Swell?

If you find swollen lug nuts, the only solution is to replace the swollen nuts with higher-quality ones.
