I have bought a set of 5 used 16x7 toyota alloy wheels to put onto a 1997 RV6 Prado. The wheels are the three wide spoke type in metallic silver. I need to get hold of 27 wheel nuts and 4 hub covers for these and Toyota want about $385 for these parts! (much more than I paid for the alloys)

Can anyone please advise of an alternative (cheaper!) supplier for these parts if non-genuine is an option.

Thanks for any help that you can give,
Mark

Unfortunately you may find you're stuck with genuine parts, as the nuts for alloys must be exactly the right size to match the holes in the wheels.

Typical spare parts ripoff, regardles of make.

Factory wheels will only take factory nuts and washers, if ROH wheels, ROH nuts and washers will fit, but I dont think they copied the 3 spoke wheel.

Hi Mark

My VZJ95R came with alloys & I've subsequently bought a set of steels. Didn't / haven't worried about the hub covers but I bought the necessary wheel nuts (chrome ones too :}) at the local Goodyear dealer; about $2 each as I recall.

Check your local tyre places is my recommendation. Good luck.

Graeme, he is talking the "special" alloy rim wheel nut the toyota rims use, not the average every day chrome steel wheel nut ;-)
