Lug nut socket size

Can someone tell me the socket size I need for the lug nuts on 14" aluminum wheels for 2015 23FB International Serenity?

Thanks!

I use a four way lug wrench and one of the ends fits everything I own. They are available at after market auto stores and maybe at Walmart. You can always return it and get a different one if it doesn't fit. Best is one that fits the tow vehicle and trailer wheels because 4 way's are an easier way to remove lug nuts. My memory says a 23 mm. is the right one for all recent Airstreams.

Here is a copy of a post I did last November on my tire changing issue:

OK, the tire repair saga is over and done. However, in an effort to save other Forum members some of the grief I experienced, I am posting a list of what is now "on board" as my tire change kit:

1. 6 ton bottle jack;
2. Set of Lynx levelers (I used 3);
3. Two pieces of scrap wood, roughly the same dimensions as the Lynx levelers (used on top & bottom of levelers to provide flat surface);
4. Wheel chocks for opposite tire;
5. 19" Craftsman breaker bar, 1/2" drive;
6. Set of three Craftsman extensions, 1/2" drive;
7. 3/4", 6 point, deep set Craftsman socket, 1/2" drive;
8. Craftsman torque wrench, 1/2" drive;
9. Old school "T" lug wrench; worthless for most anything, but you can use it to spin the lugs down real fast prior to applying proper torque. Plus, it belonged to my father, and looks cool;
10. Tire gauge;
11. Air compressor to plug into 12v outlet in truck to air up spare (do this before mounting the spare on the Airstream, please!);
12. Small flask of good quality bourbon for post tire change celebration.

My torque wrench has a 5/8" long socket on her and she works fine. Torque wrench goes to 200# and AS says to torque to 110#.

And if what Cannonball provided is not enough, at least on our 2014, it is the same size as the nut on your stablizer jack and the speedwrench supplied by AS to put the jack down. By the way, once you have broken the nuts loose, the speed wrench works a whole lot faster than a tire iron or torque wrench which should be used when reinstalling the wheel/tire.

Good advice Cannonball.
My 2014 uses the same size also for leveling jacks. Break lugnuts loose with breaker bar. A 3/4 inch 6 point socket (not 12 point) works well. I use a cordless drill with a socket adapter to spin lugnuts and leveling jacks.

Once loose or to spin the lugs on, I use the cordless drill and socket I use for the stabilizers. Then use a torque wrench.
