Wheels Separate From Vehicle Because Lug Nuts Crack And Detach

Recall Details

The lug nuts equipped on vehicles with accessory 20-inch Rockstar wheels could crack and detach from the vehicle, allowing the wheels to separate from the vehicle. Dealers will install new replacement lug nuts free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The lug nuts installed on the vehicle when equipped with optional 20-inch Rockstar wheels may crack and detach from the vehicle, resulting in the wheels coming off the vehicle unexpectedly. This could result in an accident and injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Southeast Toyota Distributors will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in June, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
