Sounds like the price has come down since then
Toyota is not always cheaper though. Toyota wants more than double what GM wanted for a catalytic converter.
These are the cheapest lug nuts I've ever had the displeasure of working with... They get chewed up REALLY easy if people aren't watching what they are doing, hence the need for me to buy 5 new ones... I even skinned one up myself switching back to my summer tires... That GM price is ridiculous for the quality you get with these, or should I say don't get with these.... I think the Toyota price is still a ripoff because of how weak these things are, they should be $1 each. But anyway, I'll bet Toyota rips GM off to begin with, so GM has to pass that on to us. scherry2 is right on, GM has to make something to get back the cost from repackaging and putting these parts in their inventory... It really shows, like our $12/qt. Toyota transmission fluid.
I was also lucky to think to ask about lock nuts for the alloys; they came with the Matrix, but not with the Vibe, so I kept mine (I have two sets of wheels, so the alloys were off for the winter).
