  1. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Hi All, I'm trying to switch my stock 18" rims to 16" aftermarket ones, and the aftermarket rims require a thin-wall socket, but the only thin-wall sockets I have are short. So I'd like to switch my lug nuts -- from the short OEM kind (on the left) to these longer ones (right)...

    Probably stupid question but I am assuming KIA stayed with the same lug pattern of 5x114.3 for the 2020 soul. Pat.

    I have a 2014 RedZone, Looking to replace the lug nuts with RED lug nuts. I see OEM red cap lug nuts for $160ish thru various sources I see other brand after market red lug nuts in various styles $35ish. Anyone here have experience with any of the aftermarket styles/brands? Recommendations? Thanx

    I searched but didn't find anything but if theres a post already I missed I'm sorry. I would like to replace the chrome lug nuts with some red ones to match my soul. I found some on by dorman but was wondering if anyone has used them and could relate quality/toughness of the coloring...

    I assume lug nuts are right hand threaded? I couldn't loosen one, so thought I better check before trying harder!

    I have a 2013 Kia Soul ! with 18" aluminum wheels. For this winter I bought 2014 Kia Soul 16" steel wheels and covers. I intend to put 215/60R 16 studded snows on all four wheels. My question: Are the lug nuts for the aluminum and steel wheels the same. I noticed you have to put the wheel...

    So for what ever reason one of my lugnut studs is messed up. I think its the front passenger if I remember right. The beginning part of threads is stripped but I can still put a lugnut on. I Just ordered a set of wheels and want to fix it before they come. Just wondering if anybody knows if...

    I have a base 2013 Soul that has 15 inch steel rims. I have just purchased a set of 16 inch mags from a 2011. Are the lug nuts for the mags the same as the ones used on the steel rims?

    I went to purchase new front tires today and the guys could not locate the lug nut removal socket or tool. They searched everywhere in the car and so did I, but no luck at all. It is my wife's car and when I called her she could not remember anything at all about it or where it was. We ended up...

    New PLUS owner here and I rotated the wheels when I had them off to wash them. They arrived very dirty with some overspray from the undercoating. Now they are washed and waxed. The weights are the stick-on type unless a weight can go on the inside lip. I replaced the tiny lug nuts with full...

    I need to get a lug wrench and will most likely go with a torque wrench. Does anyone know the correct lug nut size for a 2102+ with 16" OEM alloy wheels. Any recommendations for a torque wrench would also be appreciated Thanks.

    I found it odd that my 2012 Soul + requires a 13/16" socket for the lug nuts on the 16" wheels. I took one of the extra lug nuts shopping with me today (my Soul came with the wheel locking lug nut package) and discovered that the 13/16" socket was the perfect fit for it. I sorta expected this...

    looking into a set of darker rims (gunmetal or black) probably from discount tire, noticed their install kit (lug nuts) comes in chrome, anyone know where I can pick up some sets of black lug nuts that will work with aftermarket wheels?
  17. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what type of lug nut I need for a factory 16" aluminum rim? I bought a set from one of the members on here so I can upgrade from my 15" steel rims. I went to the auto parts store and they had "tapered" lug nuts seats and "bulge" lug nut seats and I'm...

    Hi folks. I plan to change my OEM "chrome" lugs nut on my Sx for black ones. I saw few models, but almost all are made of forged aluminium. Is this correct or should stay in "steel" to avoid any problems ?? M12 X 1.5 Robert:cool: 4U SX 5 Speed Polar

    I did not want the factory locking lug nuts but it was put on at the factory and was stuck with paying for them, but they were replaced with regular ones. So with all this being said these are NEW locking lug nuts set with a key. $25 Thanks

    I searched the Forums prior to posting this and could not find the numbers. I don't have my owner's manual with me so.. Can anyone tell me what the proper Wheel Lug Nut torque is for the Soul? I will be getting a winter wheel package from Discount Tire (No one can beat their price..not even...
