hot lug nuts ~ 2003 Tacoma


New Member
The lugs on front wheels my 2003 taca tocoma get very hot. Is this normal? 2.4L RWD, base no options.

77k miles. front bearings cleaned and repacked at 71k.

never noticed this before, but generally I dont touch lugs immediately after driving. So, maybe it's always been like that?

It's likely heat from your braking system radiating to the lugs. This is a good thing for brake cooling.
