    Wheel Nut Pointers



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi all,was going to order some wheel nut pointers today but as I don't have a socket or spanner big enough to fit them,I measured across from flat to flat,which is 26mm. I went online to order 26mm pointers,but the site told me that 26mm across the flats is equivalent to a 17mm nut...***?
    My biggest spanner is 22mm and doesn't fit so I'm completely confused as to what size pointers I need to order,anyone?
    Thanks,Dave

    Dave I assume the thread size is 17mm. Which is not the same as a 17mm so met or spanner size

    Measure again, they are probably 16 mm dia bolts/studs which are 24 mm across the flats. Although certain vehicles can throw up some non standard sizes.

    Thanks all for the quick replies,the wheel nuts are on my 7.5t MAN that I'm converting,just to clear that up.
    So let me get this right,the 17mm quoted on the site is the internal thread size?

    That seems to be the case, although the site chart may be stating
    17mm wheel bolt/stud is standard for a 24mm AF nut.
    The OP has bigger nuts than me, but less elegant.
    My own are 14mm studs and 19mm AF nuts, but I think the standard
    stipulates 12mm studs for 19mm AF nuts prob. Merc. up
    the steel strength quality.....I hope.
