Locking wheelnuts for Steels on an 80

Hi,
Have any of you come across a source of locking wheel nuts for steel
wheels on an 80?
My Toyota sources are struggling to find anything, all they can come up
with are the standard locking nuts that use a washer to hold the alloys
in place - I'm after a conical end to the nut with no washers to hold
some fancy alloys in place - currently we are using standard steel
wheel nuts.
Any pointers would be appreciated.

Hi Julian=2C

I know of a source- trailer nuts from various places fit the bill- I bought a set recently from a local trailer place that stocked all sorts of sizes- as long as you have the diamater and thread pitch they can usualy match.

i bought a set of shoulder lugs last time=2C but they should also do conicals for steels no probs- can give you a reference when i'm back after this weekend if this little gem doens't help!

Cheers

Jim

Julian,
I think that Mc'guard do the conical ones for cruisers. I had a
confusing time trying to get the washered ones for mine.

hi julian
i have used oe locking wheel nuts, bought originally for 15" alloys, on 16"
lc steels for the past 4 years in africa and they work fine. however i only
use them when i am in and around towns and there is a small chance of wheels
getting pinched, although chassis and carrier spares are usually an easier
targets.
after a while these locking wheel nuts (which are made of some alloy) tend
to stretch and are more liable to slip and become unusable, i don't know if
the locking nuts for steel wheels are made of anything different. however,
even if they stretch, if you've got a few tools inc a spare socket they can
still be off in a jiffy.

Hi Andy,
Did you get these from Toyota?
I'm actually after two sets, one for the wheels on the car and 2 from
the second set for the wheels on the carrier.

The nuts you need are a Standard M12x1.5 60 degree taper for most steel
wheels. I have non locking in stock and should be having locking ones in
next week. STD steel nuts are =A31.25 each waiting to confirm price of the
locking nuts.
Cheers
