I should have looked at what I pack before posting, should have posted 19mm.



I use a thin wall so it fits between the wheel and the center cap.

Hmm, is it possible what I think are lug nuts are just some sort of cover? 19mm is just under 3/4". I've tried 15/16" and that still was too small.
I have steel wheels, if that makes a difference.

Wow.

What size wheels 16's?

Covers are possible but I thing those are like for Motor Homes.

These are chrome lugs on 15 inch alloy wheel's

Lol, taking a closer look at them what appeared to be white painted metal was actually plastic. Prying them off reveals the nuts. Man those suckers are hard to remove though.
I'd like to replace the nondescript nuts with chrome lug nuts and ditch the plastic covers. Anyone know if there's any reason not to do this?

I bought this one at Advanced Auto when I was looking. I believe it was $35.00.

AutoCraft 1/2" Drive Click Torque Wrench AC68: Advance Auto Parts

If I remember correctly, it had more positive reviews than the Sears. I put my Companion 5th wheel hitch in with it.
