stud is m12 I believe with a 1.5mm pitch.
Make sure you get narrow body nuts so that they will fit in the wheel nut hole. You can measure the diameter and base your purchase off that.

first things first: thread pitch for our celica is 12 x 1.5, so make sure you're getting that.

if you're purchasing lugs online, make sure they are a conical seat type. not a ball/spherical type. most common aftermarket lug that i've seen people use is the "muteki" style.

second, what kind of volks do you have? there are some volks out there that require the use of a special type of "extended thread (ET)" lugnut. i believe its from the volk gt-c series.
