Lug Nut Socket Size Chart

It’s important to note that lug bolts are distinct from most other types of nuts and bolts on your car. For your car to move and keep you safe, they are responsible for attaching each wheel to an axle.

To replace a lug nut that has been broken or lost, it is critical to know how different lug nut sizes and kinds vary from vehicle to vehicle. If you ever lose one or break one, you quickly discover there is no universal lug nut size, and the answer to are all lug nuts the same size is no.

In our guide, no matter the size of your car, you can find what size socket for lug nuts you need. By the end, unless you work in the Grand Prix, you can find the lug nut socket sizes for all car manufacturers. (Read Best Tool To Remove Lug Nuts)

Lug Nut Socket Size

What Size Is a Lug Nut Socket?

To remove or tighten lug nuts or lug bolts, you’ll need the suitable size of lug wrench, torque wrench, impact socket, or ordinary socket.

The manufacturer usually determines the socket size you’ll require; however, this can change. The following are the most common sizes you’ll come across:

In the case of bolts, you need to measure thread with a tape measure, although reading from a tape measure can be challenging.

Another solution is to try your nut on various bolts in the hardware store until you find the same.

You can determine socket wrench, and socket sizes the same way.

However, if you need to check as there is no store nearby, you can use a nut size chart to simplify things and save time. (Read Our Wrench Sizes Guide)

Here you can find our wheel nut size chart. You will find the sizes are in mm (metric), and it is the lug nut breaker bar, or torque wrench sizes that can be measured in standard or imperial.

Common Sizes Lug Nut Socket

What Socket Removes Lug Nuts?

The most common sizes that fit most lug nuts are included. In addition, 13/16, 7/8, 3/4, 15/16 inch, and 17 and 19 mm drive sockets are included in the set.

Second, how big are Toyota lug nuts compared to American cars? M12 x 1.5 thread size 3/4″ hex “. 1.45 in.
17mm, 19mm, and 21mm are the most common hex sizes or wheel nut/wheel bolt head sizes.

To get the nut on the lug started, you’ll need to use a shallow nut in the socket with a short extension and start the nut with your fingers.

To address the question, if you’re putting together a kit to keep in the car, use a 21 mm short socket that matches your wheel nuts.

In some instances, if there is a spare or tire rack on your vehicle, you can use a set of wheel nuts here to hold this on, so you always have a spare should you lose a nut.

All you need is to keep a socket and breaker bar in your vehicle to replace wheel nuts or a lost lug nut. (Read Briggs And Stratton Oil Capacity Chart)

Are Lug Nuts All The Same Size?

No, is the short answer. A typical blunder made by car owners is to presume that all lug nuts are the same.

Like any other type of fastener, lug nuts or lug bolts vary in size by the car manufacturer. As a result, even some models of vehicles will have larger thread sizes than other types of vehicles.

For example, a Grand Caravan may take a different size than a town car.

However, you can find the means of fastening your wheel to your vehicle is the same regardless of socket size.

Fittings differ for an impact driver, yet even if you don’t use an impact wrench, you’ll find a breaker bar, lug nut socket wrench up to a torque wrench that can fit the various sizes when you come to remove lug nuts.

The most significant difference aside from the socket head is the thread size and pitch.

The number of threads per inch (in SAE) or the spacing between the threads in millimeters is referred to as thread pitch (metric). For example, a lug nut with 12mm x 1.25 threads will have tighter threads than one with 12mm x 1.75 threads.

Lug nuts and bolts are small, yet they do some important jobs. For example, they hold your wheels on to make sure tires are secured, so your wheels have proper alignment.

Besides the common lug nut sizes, knowing the lug nuts, you can come across is handy.

You can’t grab one from the Toyota Motor Corporation and think it will fit your Chevy or even a BMW, even if the sizing matches.

You may not find all these on your vehicles, yet it is still good to understand the ones you’ll use and ones you won’t.

Conical Seat

Conical lug nuts are the most frequent type of lug nut. The seat tapers inward at a 60-degree angle (typically).

These lug nuts have a cone form to fit a cone-shaped hole. They are often simple to work with and center.

You can find these in the vehicle section of your hardware store, yet you can still spend ages checking the package to see what car manufacturers they cover.

Ball Seat

A ball lug nut’s seat is rounded or spherical rather than cone-shaped. Ball seat lug nuts are featured on some Honda, Audi, and Volkswagen automobiles, albeit they aren’t as popular as conical lugs.

If they are installed, it may be difficult to tell which is because the heads look almost identical to conical lug nuts.

Flat Seat

The seat is flat and resembles a washer, as the name suggests. Flat-seated lug nuts are perhaps the most annoying and challenging to work with of all the many types of lug nuts.

The problem is that because they have a short barrel that goes into the lughole, centering them can be difficult.

The stem can catch if it isn’t exactly centered, making it appear as though the lug nut is tightened when it isn’t.

Because flat surfaces have a larger surface area than other surfaces, they are more likely to get caught and are more challenging to release.

Extended Thread

An extended thread (ET) lug nut is similar to a regular conical lug nut, except it has a longer thread. When utilizing conventional lug nuts, the wheel studs’ length and the wheels’ mounting surface do not allow enough thread engagement.

The more considerable thread length allows for improved engagement and a more secure attachment of the wheels.

Mag Seat

Another enlarged thread lug with a washer seat. It’s utilized in similar situations where a longer thread is required, but instead of a conical, tapered bottom, a flat seat is employed (sometimes with a washer, sometimes without).

Because they were once composed of magnesium, they’re known as mag seat lug nuts.

Tuner Style

Many aftermarket wheels, especially for Hondas, Acuras, and other Asian tuner cars, have smaller lug nut’s size. Standard acorn lugs won’t fit; therefore, tuner lug nuts are required.

A unique tuning lug wrench or key that fits precisely over the lug is required to tighten or loosen these conical seat wheel nuts. The tuning key is topped with a standard socket like a lug nut.

An extra key is included with purchasing a set of tuner lug nuts; however, it can also be purchased independently if lost.

Stump and thread corrosion is caused by tuner lug nuts being open in the center to accept the tuning key. As a result, tuner lug nuts are no longer widely used, and the spline drive design is far superior. (Read Socket Size Chart Metric And Standard)

Spline Drive

This small-diameter lug features a conical seat and utilizes a unique key, like tuner lug nuts. However, instead of a central aperture, spline drive lug nuts have narrow slots on the top and sides to accommodate the low profile key. As a result, they don’t have the same rusting issue.

Because spline drive lug nuts have a common pattern, don’t presume you can use them to dissuade thieves. Anyone can readily get replacement keys from a local car parts store or online.

Lug Bolt

These are lug nuts with a stud/bolt attached. They are threaded directly into the disc brakes braking rotor hat.

Whatever the cause, you can’t hang the wheel on the studs to insert lug nuts. Instead, align the rotor plate holes with the hub holes, then lift the wheel assembly and secure it while installing the initial lug nuts.
