Stock Lug Nut on Aftermarket Wheels
 
I'm wondering if it's safe to use my stock lug nuts of Lexus IS250 on VOLK wheels.
Anyone has an answer to this?

definitely not. and i'm pretty sure they dont' fit either.

toyota/lexus use the style with washers on them and only fit toyota/lexus rims. you'd damage the rims and risk having them come off.

get aftermarket lugs.

we have the Ceco heat treated tuner nuts that should fit those in stock.

apparently my wheels fell of my civic cuz i was using stock lugs on after market wheels.
well, that was the excuse the shop gave me when i pick up my car from getting coil overs installed from them, and on the drive home my wheels fell of on the highway.

All you have to do is look at the seat on the wheels and the seat on the lugnut. If they're different, change them.

most aftermarket wheels use this tappered type of lug nut

most stock wheels use this ball type of lug nut

ignore the fact this is a lug bolt, but look at how they differe, where it tappers to the threads or it is rounded to the threads.

if u drive a toyota, you use a shank style lug nut.

if you have steelies, you probably use the ball type.

if stock nuts are unsafe for aftermarket wheels, then are nuts for alloy wheels safe to use on steelies (ie. taking off OEM alloys for steelies in the winter)?

Well, if you have aftermarket lugs with aftermarket rims, you probably saved the stockers for stock rims.

Again, regardless of stock or aftermarket, the lugs have to match the rims.

u need different ones for sure.

the holes in the volks are way smaller. the lexus/toyota lugs are huge.

DO NOT lose your OEM lug nuts, some shops charge $5/pc for the ones with washers.

also, for some volks, i think you need to get lug nuts that are dedicated to the specific wheel too. that goes for the Volks GT-C
