Default Lug nuts 2006 Civic

I have a 2006 Civic LX coupe.......anyone know what size the lug nuts
on the 16" aluminum wheels are? I would like to get an impact socket
for them.

Thanks

great - now he's going to be using air tools on his lug nuts and coming
back here bleating about how his brakes disks are "warping" every 5k miles.


to the o.p. - do NOT use air tools to tighten your lug nuts. fasten
with a torque wrench only, in the correct sequence, with a 2 or more
stage tightening process.

You can't try a few non-impact sockets to see what fits?

Or are you going to attempt a fast midnight excursion for somebody else's
wheels?

That was my initial thought, but then I remembered I use an impact wrench to
remove the lug nuts - faster than other methods. Heck, I even use it on a
reduced setting to put them on and it still leaves a turn or so before the
torque wrench clicks. It's always mandatory to use impact sockets on an
impact wrench because of the risk of shattering a regular socket even at
reduced settings.

LOL.........well thats pure laziness, I just figured i'd check here
first.

I was only doing this in order to get my lug nuts off...........I'm
not going to hammer em back on, I know the score on warping rotors.

Um, I would have thought trying a few non-impacts on your own would be
classed as FUN.

Don't you enjoy just moseying around your vehicle, doing little idle
nothings just to make yourself feel good, and coincidentally enjoying the
smells of the car, and the sounds of the engine cooling off?

No? Then you're not a "hobby" type owner. Let somebody else do your wheel
nuts.

I love doing that stuff but where I recently moved into a very large
apartment building, it's hard to do work on your car........my tools
are difficult to get down the stairs.

I'm an aircraft mechanic by trade........don't worry about what kind
of "owner" I am.

Yeah, I know how that works. Apartment buildings and condos generally
prohibit work on your car on their property. I spent ten years in an
apartment building.

Sure, but one socket?

Hey, I just thought of something: if you can't check the wheel nut size
with a non-impact socket because you live in an apartment bulding that
prohibits working on your car, HOW WILL YOU USE AN IMPACT SOCKET TO WORK
ON THAT SAME CAR? Where would you legally plug the gun in and use it?

The answer is, that you must be a thief...

....or you're making up the whole works.
