Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,000 miles
After a blowout on my left front tire on my 2002 Toyota Sienna xle, I discovered that the lug nuts designed for the aluminum wheels do not fit the steel wheel of the full size spare, and Toyota does not provide the "acorn" type lug nuts for the spare. The lug nuts for the aluminum wheels do not seat properly against the steel wheel spare. I believe that not providing the proper lug nuts for the spare is a serious omission on Toyota's part and makes driving with the spare with the improper lug nuts very dangerous.
