    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    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.
  4. 13/16" Lug Nut Size

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)

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...

    wonder if anyone has any experience with aftermarket lug nuts - the ones with a recessed head that requires a special splined wrench - seems like that wrench would be quite flimsy - is this a problem ? trying to speed up tire rotations by not having to pull the wheel-covers - standard lug...
  9. Lug nut size?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    What is the size of the lug nuts themselves? I bought some new ones to match my black wheels (that are getting installed today!) They are M12 - 1.50 on the package. Is that the right size for the Soul?
