I bought a 4 way at Harbor Freight and it works fine with my X213s mag wheels.

Torque wrench and socket - dealer spec'd 120 ft/lbs for the aluminum rims...but I'd double check before taking my word for it.

Spark plug socket

I just changed all 4 tires and had the same issue. None of my lug wrenches would work. I tried a 1/2 drive socket ... it would not fit either. I finally tried the 13/16 spark plug socket and it fit perfect. Only 3/8 drive but still worked fine. Added a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter to my torque wrench and all is good.

P.S. Torque spec for my wheel lugs according to manual was 70lbs.

FWIW, on my 2016 X213, 19mm did the trick. 3/4 would work too, obv. I didn't have any clearance problems, I used a half-inch lug wrench I already had, but you could make it work with a breaker bar too (might have to change the angle depending on the lug you're trying to reach, because of clearance with the hub)

Thanks

We just took our maiden voyage over the weekend. I took a 3/4 in socket and breaker bar....I need to work this one out before August. We are going across country with the camper.

Thanks

Tom

Tom the whole key for me was using a 3/8 drive socket with the 1/2 inch drive adapter. None of my 1/2 inch drive sockets were thin enough to fit over the lugs.

I carry an 18" braker bar, and just the sockets that fit each vehicle and trailer I own. Not sure what size sockets they are just tried various impact sockets I have and noted which sizes I needed. Then went to the hardware store and bought two sets of the required components, and they live in each vehicle.

I just checked. Mine takes a 3/4"

My Plan

We are going cross country to the tune of 5 to 6 thousand miles in August... My plan is a thin walled 13/16 socket and a breaker bar and my impact driver. I would break the lugnut loose with the breaker bar and then use the driver....

Then repeat in reverse when mounting the spare.


I'm also repacking the bearings this week and any questionable lugs and nuts will be replaced.

Thanks
Tom
