Default Torque wrench help

Hey guys, I tried to take off my rims today for an autocross meet I will be attending on Sunday but found out that the wrench that Lexus supplied wil not fit into the socket of my wheel. Where can I get a wrench that will fit and what is it called?

I have Racing Hart C4's and the lugs look different from the ones that came with the stock wheels......

Default Wrench

You want a power bar to take them off, and a torque wrench to put them on. We sell both along with a thin wall socket in your size. That should be all you need, you will need to know the head size of your hardware.

Can you provide me with links to where I can take a look and possibly purchase these items?

Also, how can I find out the size? I have no clue.... All I know are that my wheels are 18".....

Your nearest hardware store or store similar to Sears will be an option to find the socket and torque wrench that you need. You can also visit Sears online.

Here is a link, just take a lug nut off and measure it or just get the 17, 19, and 21mm and one of those will work.

I guess you got a point... Can you try and measure the head size while it's still on the wheel? Do you know someone who has tools that would let you use their sockets to find the right one? Other wise just buy the Gorilla power bar with 3 sockets it's only like 15 bucks.

Drive your car to your nearest service station...they should have sockets to fit your lugs...they can tell you what size you need to remove them.

Do you have a socket set at home ? Just get a 17mm, 19mm, and a 21mm and see which one fits. You don't have to try to take it off, just see which one fits.

When i brought rims, it made the lug wrench from Lexus worthless. So as a temporary fix, i carry a 19mm socket and wrench in the car until i can get my lazy butt to order one,lol.
