What is the correct size or tool for wire wheel lug nuts?
3/4 in works but is sloppy.
Thanks

11/16 works for me.

I find 11/16" awfully tight, so I use 18mm.

11/16" = .6985"
18mm = .7086"
3/4" = .750"

Thanks for your responses.
11/16 would not fit on my lug nuts.
I will use the 18mm.
Maybe my lug nuts are not correct.
Or maybe the original lug wrench was 23/32?

11/16" has always worked for me. Maybe the Chinese repro "artists" used the nearest metric size for the nuts. :-)
