They are definitely metric

I recall they are 19mm. A 3/4" socket might also work.

Being in the tire biz, make sure it's a 6 point socket and not a 12 point. If you use true impact sockets, this probably won't be an issue.

What could be an issue is the thick walled impact socket fitting on lug without interference from the wheel. You will want 6 point sockets for sure, but might want to look for a standard chrome socket it has thinner wall.

Thin wall socket set, cheap enough to leave in the trailer.

My experience - socket wall thickness not an issue. Believe the wheels are to torqued to about 135 ft lbs (socket needs to handle without cracking). Takes a lot to break the lugnuts loose (suspect over 150 ft lbs to loosen). On the rear duals, took about 12 or 18 inches of extensions to use a breaker bar / pipe on the breaker bar for leverage / torque wrench to tighten (impact driver and torque stick is the easy way). There are some tools under the passenger floor, including hydraulic jack, lug nut socket of sorts, etc. The supplied "socket" plus bar (put through the hole in the "socket") plus the jack's handle on the bar for leverage works for the front wheels - but very difficult on the rear duals.
FYI, Jim

Sometimes lug nuts are put on at the tire shop or truck with out regard to proper procedure.

They simply use a big air gun and hammer the nuts home.

A better grade technician will use a torque wrench for the final setting.

If your coach has been abused by the techs that don't care, there may be a problem getting the lug nuts loose.

The X 12 is used by many folks with coaches that torque to 350-400 lbs and need removal a few years later.

Overkill for 150 lb lug nuts but it does work.
