missing lug nuts

Took my 2010 FJ Trail Team in for an oil change the other day...and they came out to ask me if I knew that I was missing 2 lug nuts off one of the TRD wheels. (Of course I didn't know this...wasn't something I had planned.) In any event, if you've got a 2010 TT edition with the TRD wheels, you might want to check the lug nuts. Either these weren't tightened down sufficiently upon installation (the vehicle is new, obviously) or someone has been slowly trying to relieve me of my wheels.....

Re: missing lug nuts

Checking the torque on lug nuts should be part of your regular maintenance schedule, and one best not left to the minimum-wage high school kids that mount tires at tires stores and dealers.

If it's the spare you're talking about it only comes with 3.
