Lug Wrench Size

Well my winter tires have arrived and I'm hoping to put them on while the weather is still somewhat nice.

Anyway, after many searches, I couldn't find the size of the lug wrench that I need to buy. I purchased a lug wrench with 4 ends and the smallest size was 11/16in (17mm). While it was close, it just didnt' seem to be a tight fit.

Does anyone know the correct size? Thanks!

NoMoreAutomatics,

17mm should be the correct size. 11/16 is a little larger than 17mm so it will be loose. Don't use 11/16 on your lug nut.

Protect your precious rims

Yes it is 17mm, and I recommend getting this set. It has vinyl jacket on the outside and nylon insert inside to protect your rims from scratches. You can't beat the price too.

Awesome--thanks guys for the quick replies. The vinyl jacket set sounds like a great idea. I'll run by the local hardware store and see if they've got it.
