Lug Nut Socket Size Chart: What You Should Know

You might think that lug nuts are insignificant due to their small size. However, they are one of the most essential parts of any vehicle. This is why it’s important for them to always be at the right size for your vehicle so that they work well.

If you are interested in knowing more about lug nut size, then you have come to the right page. In this article, you will learn more about lug nut socket size chart and what they mean.

Lug Nut Socket Size

A lug nut is a type of nut fastener that has one conical or rounded end. It is used on aluminum or steel wheels. Lug nuts come in different sets and are mostly used to secure vehicle wheels and threaded wheel studs to the vehicle’s axles.

In addition, lug nuts have varying sizes, depending on the wheel nut size guide. This means that there is a specific nut for every manufacturer. Consequently, for every lug nut, there is a suitable or specific socket size.

What size are lug nuts? The most common sizes are the following:

  • 17mm
  • ¾ inches
  • 13/16 inches
  • ⅞ inches
  • 23mm

What Lug Nut Size Do You Need?

If you are wondering what lug nut size you need for your vehicle; the answer highly depends on its make and model. Most vehicles during the late 1900s required a 12mm x 1.5 nut type. Meanwhile, those vehicles produced during the early 2000s are compatible with either 12 mm x 1.5 or 14 mm x 1.5 lug nuts. They also vary in terms of lug nut wrench size.

To help you figure out what exactly is the lug nut size for your vehicle, you can refer to these steps:

Step #1: Find out the Seat Type Where the Nuts Fit into the Wheel

You first need to find out the seat type where the nuts fit into the wheel. Most of the time, the seat will be tapered and rounded at a 60 degrees angle. In some cases, a smaller inner cylinder offsets it. seat

Those nut seats with a straight 60 degree beveled edge are known as tapered seats acorns. Meanwhile, rounded seats are called ball seats or rounded. Lastly, offset seats are referred to as mags seats which usually have a washer between the wheel seat and the ledge.

Step #2: Check the Lug Nut Thread Size

The next step is to check the lug nut thread size. For this step, you can refer to your car’s instruction manual with its lug nut size chart, where you will find more specific information about the thread dimensions.

To get the measurement of the thread width on the lug bolt, you will need a measuring tape. If you are unable to do this, you can also opt to bring the nut to the hardware store and test it around other bolts to find the perfect fit.

Step #3: Measure the Thread Pitch

For example a thread pitch of 1.5 means that the distance between one thread and the next is 1.5mm. In general smaller fasteners have finer thread so they have lower thread pitch.

Finally, you have to make sure that the thread pitch is compatible with the threads per inch on the bolts. Again, you can use the owner’s manual for this one or do the second option discussed in step #2 But instead, check the lug nut thread size chart.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Why are lug nuts called lug nuts?

The lug nut name derives from a word that means a “projecting part.” It is originally from a Scandinavian word that means a cap or ear flap. During the 30s, the word “lug” also meant bozo, lowlife, sponger, or lout.

What is the lug nut rule?

The lug nut rule applies in NASCAR tire-changing pit stops. It requires teams to securely and safely have all the 5 lug nuts of the wheels since this is how many lug nuts are on a standard car. If they fail to do this, there is a high tendency that the driver might be forcibly called to the pit stop in the middle of the race, causing them to be left behind.

How much does a lug nut cost?

Lug nut costs differ from one manufacturer to another. However, the estimated price of typical lug nut size can start from $ 7 to $490 per set. But, these can also be bought individually.

Can you replace just one lug nut?

Technically, the answer is yes. However, it is not recommended just to replace one lug nut on a wheel because this will cause uneven pressure on the hub. It can have a significant effect on the wheel bearing, causing it to break over time. When this happens, it is more costly to repair the wheel bearings instead of buying new sets of lug nuts.

Are lug nuts universal?

The purpose of lug nuts is universal. They are made to secure your tires and wheels. However, wheel are lug nuts universal when it comes to size, thread, and sockets.

Is it Okay to be missing a lug nut?

Your vehicle will still work despite losing a lug nut. However, it is highly recommended that you have it replaced as soon as possible. This is because it can be quite dangerous driving with a missing lug nut because it causes extra pressure on the wheels. When too much pressure builds up, it can burst and cause you to lose control of the vehicle.

Do all lug nuts need to be the same?

Are you wondering; are lug nuts all the same size for one vehicle? The answer is yes, all lug nuts have to be the same in one vehicle so that it has an equal amount of tension that secures the wheels.

Does the lug nut size matter?

The lug nut size does not really matter. What matters the most is the diameter and thread pitch of the shaft. If it does not fit, then you will need to purchase new ones. Plus, if it’s not the right size, you risk potential damage or accident on your vehicle.

But, you should also take into consideration the lug wrench size chart. If they are not compatible with each other, it might be difficult to tighten and secure the lug nut.


There you have it, that’s everything that you have to know about lug nut sockets. If you have a worn-out lug nut or you’re planning to change them even before they malfunction, make sure to refer to the chart mentioned above. It will save you the headache of figuring out which is the best fit for your vehicle and buying the wrong size.
