RW trd lug nuts the cause for clicking sound...??

I, along with many others with the RW wheels, have been putting up with clicking...almost as if a rock is stuck in the tread. The clicking sound will come and go, and get very loud and then quiet down. At first it was the driver front, made an apt with the dealership b/c I was convinced it was a bad cv joint. After running across various threads of others w this issue, I started to think it was solely an issue with the wheel...especially once all of my wheels started to click. I tried removing the beadlock rings, soaking the lug nuts in silicone lubricant, and cleaning up the mating surfaces of the hub and wheel. None of these quieted the sound. The only trick was to hose the wheels down with water, let sit over night, and the clicking would be dramatically reduced the next day. After a few months of listening to this annoying sound, I've finally narrowed it down to the useless McGard spline drive lug nuts with the free floating conical washer. When I pulled each lug nut and attempted to pack grease b/w the nut and washer during my last "fix", a few were spinning free while others were corroded and stuck solid. The sad thing is that the these trd lug nuts retail for $175. Very outrageous.

In order to fix this, I'm going to try running a standard 14 x 1.5 conical 60degree taper lug nut without the floating washer. I have never had an issue with any of my past vehicles using the standard type lug nuts without the floating washer built in on aluminum wheels. Should fix the issue.

Please comment if you've ever had a clicking noise. I'll keep everyone posted.

I don't have any clicking noise with mine with almost 12k miles on it same year as yours except everything is still stock outside of intake/exhaust and my grille.

Thanks for the replys so far. I know a few over on TS have had this issue. Mine didn't start untill this spring. I'm sure the lug nuts with the floating washer stuck from corrosion are the culprits. I'm also sure my areas climate and therefore salted rds can contribute to that.

I have no clicking & the TRD lug nuts w/ washers.
2012 RW wheel set bought used pretty much were brand new.
I plan on using my steel rims in winter time.

Yup, I even heard a situation where a corporate Toyota tech came to inspect a case and said its the rings. It def is not the rings. Swap your lug nuts...I bet your click goes away. I'm going to order some soon and see what happens.

The RW lug nut does, it is called a captured conical swivel washer. The locking lug nut does not have a swivel washer, but the rest of the spline drive lug nuts do.
