Crazy Question

Went to remove spare tire at lunch and realized I don't have a lug wrench. Anyone have any idea what size lug nut is on our Classics? I have 19.5 wheels.
Thanks, Derek

Would you have a socket set by chance?

Yes, have a socket set, but even my largest socket won't fit.

1- 1/16" I used, although it was a little slacker than I liked, but no problems. If I'd had a 26mm I would have tried it. But I'm sure it's meant to be the 1- 1/16".

An auto parts store should have 4x4 lug nut wrenches. They would probably let you take it outside to check but, I realize getting the MH down there would be dif. You should be able to got a measurement from the nuts. If you have a caliper to measure with, you would be all set. Jim

1-1/16th. Get the longest handle breaker bar you can and a socket extension too, give yourself the leverage. I got a 24" and its plenty.

Thanks to all who responded. Day off today, HF was on my bucket list. 1 1/16 and extension both purchased. Will definitely look for 4X4 lug wrench and breaker bar next.
Thanks, Derek

Make sure to remove the chrome lug nut covers if you have them. They don't go back on right, then fall off if you try to remove the lug nuts with them on.
