Lug nut size?

What size lug nuts are on the 2010 Ford Fusion? (say the 18" SAP wheels for example).

I bought a new air compressor that came with an impact wrench so I might as well get the thin walled lug nut sockets too.

Thanks..

Think I'll get one of those multi sets (7 sockets) with the plastic sleeves so I can be prepared for any wheel. At least I'll be able to put my own snow wheels on too finishing with a manual torque beam type torque wrench. That should work, right?

Re: Lug nut size?

I had to use a 13/16" on mine. You need to check and see what you have on your car.

Re: Lug nut size?

I have one of the various lug nut sockets with the plastic liner to protect your chrome lug nuts. This set is great, but expensive, I'm sure you can find cheaper sets.

Re: Lug nut size?

$70 for sockets seems silly. How many times do you change your wheels that you think you're going to marr the lugnuts?

The set pictured above is $49.95 and besides I will need to change four wheels twice a year at bare minimum (mount and demount snow wheels), and have 4 cars in our household that may require their use on occasion. On top of that it'll be 9 deep sockets that I can use for other reasons (having a brand new air impact gun and no sockets to go with it.)

Re: Lug nut size?

the OEM nuts are a crapy cheap stainless steel tin covered nut, they dont rust, so as long as you dont beat them up and rattle them off tight, you should be fine. I suggest any old 19mm thinwall socket will work since you arent going to use it often. I used an impact and a standard little thinwall socket on my wheels the other day when I put my winters on without so much as a scratch on my stock nuts. it all depends how careful you are rather than the tool itself

Re: Lug nut size?

i bought a set of campbell hausfield impact sockets at walmart for 20 bucks. look near the automotive section, its by the air compressors. they have a 3/8 in drive set and a 1/2 inch drive set. i bought the 1/2inch drive. the set came in a case, they were black impact sockets and had 7 sae and 8 metrics i think. i just took the 18 inch sport rims off my car and this set came in handy. works great for 20 bucks.
