What size to I need?

I've got a Rockwood Sig ultra lite 8982 WS and I'm not sure what size or kind of socket to use on the lug nuts. Nothing I have fits. Is there a specific way to know the torque number when reinstalling? Picture attached. Thanks for the help.

I have a 8280 and the lug nut size is 3/4 deep well socket .in the owners manual there is a section on how to torque the nuts and end up at 85 to95 ft/lbs .

You will need a thin walled socket. I bought a 19mm Craftsman.

I have a Windjammer, but looking at the pictures you have the same wheels as I do. I'm able to use a 3/4" impact socket on mine.

I have an 8289ws also and the 19mm works much better with the lug nuts. Using a 3/4 I ended up denting a few of the lugs when I swapped the tires out.

Is it possible to get some idea of what is used to remove and replace lug nuts? I've been shopping impact wrenches but the real good 1/2 inch lithium ion ones start at $250 or so and go up from there. I know the corded ones are cheaper, but I don't have any type of plug to use on the road. Any suggestions?

18 Volt 1/2 in. Cordless Variable Speed Impact Wrench
Will generate approx 100flbs. Had enough battery to take all four off and reinstall. Got mine much cheaper by watching sales
