Lug Nut Sizes
#1
Hi all. 

So my car currently has lug nuts that are 19mm hex size and I've ordered some locking wheel nuts that are 17mm hex. The thread and bolt sizes are a match but the hex is different. Other than being an annoyance for my tyre fitters will this cause any other problem, or do I need to buy 19mm ones instead?

Pretty sure it's only the hex size that's different. I had 19mm locking bolts, but the other bolts were 17mm on my old Vectra-C. I just made sure I carried around a star wheel brace in the boot.
