My '01 came with locking lug nuts, all 5 (steel) wheels, but they were a $50+ Monroney sticker add-on (not a dealer mark-up). Glad I have them, especially since I no longer use any cover on my spare (I like the look).
My '98 came with a locking lugnut on the spare only, so when I put new rubber on steel wheels, I visited Walmart and put a cheap set on the other four wheels.......they only stop honest ppl anyway, IMHO.
My '05 Chili came with 5 locking lugnuts on the 5 alloys........BUT I feel the spare is still vunerable to theft as anyone with a rachet and swivel can get thru the spokes and take off the spare mount c/w spare........I've thought about taking the door card off the back door and pinning the four bolts in some manner.......AND anyone with expensive wheels shud consider this!!!
Package C was almost perfect for me... I didn't want leather seats and didn't want the sunroof. The only thing I missed was the alarm system. Will probably get an aftermarket alarm one of these days though.
I took mine off. They are a pain when you rotate tires. The Toyota Fan Blade rims come with a much larger lug nut, so I would have to get a second larger set, which just complicates things. We live in a very low crime area in the North Carolina mountains (aka Mayberry). People leave their cars running outside of the Post Office, so I'm not worried about they taking my wheels.
I believe the price of the wheel cover is at least 2X that of the cheap steel spare rim and stock spare tire, so I'd be more concerned about losing the painted factory wheel cover than the wheel. They run like $330.
I have an 04 sport with a non jbl stereo it seems like there might be an amp somewhere it sounds good for factory. I want to disconnect the factory amp and get a better amp to drive my infinity perfects components. I am also installing a dvd player JVC with the factory controls.
my sons car is with him at college. I suspect his front left wheel bearing is going.
Is the wheel bearing and hub assembly a bolt on, bolt off - I have impact tools etc. Considering driving to his college with jack, stands, etc and doing the work on site.
Does anyone have a right passenger side engine cover for the 2002 Toyota rav 4 automatic awd base they are selling?
