    Default Wheel nut - what socket size?

    Hi,

    I've recently picked up a Torque wrench (1/2" square drive) but need to find a socket I can use on it that will fit the wheel nuts.

    Does anybody know where I can pick up a 1/2" square drive socket that will fit the standard (hex headed) Vectra C wheel nut? I'm assuming it's a 17mm socket but would rather not use the wrong one (or the standard one in the box set) so I don't damage the nut or socket.

    Can anybody help me please?

    Thanks

    Not a problem.

    Also depending on the depth of you bolt hole, you may need a short extension.

    I always use one, to save scratching the wheel

    I have the standard alloy for the 55 plate SRi (5 sets of two spokes) - I'll aim for the longer socket with the nylon surround. Thanks very much
