I helped a friend purchase a 17 XLE yesterday.Included in the price we are getting a set of winter tires and the Toyota 17" steel rims.The sales guy said we need to buy ordinary lug nuts for the steel rims.The nuts that come on the XLE alum wheels won't seat properly on the steel wheels.Does anyone have experience with this?

Yes, he is correct. Alloy rims are held secure by both the shank and the taper on the lugnut. Steel ones only use the taper so using alloy lugnuts will look wrong and the taper may not match the rim. Of course AP store or online ones are much less expensive than Toyota's I'm sure.
