Default lug nut question

Just picked up some MB wheel, weapon

Now i need to find some lugnuts.

Am i able to still use the lugnut wrench that came with the car if i were to purchase one of these?

13/16 in. lugnut wrench required size

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GOR-41127/
3/4 in. lugnut wrench required size

what is the oem lugnut wrench size?

is it imperative that i purchase these?

If you're going to be putting the wheels on yourself, buy a torque wrench. Overtorqued lugs=snapped/stripped wheel studs. Undertorqued lugs=possibly falling off. You want to torque them to spec.

oem 19mm wrench = .748" = 3/4"

3/4" is what you want if you want to use the stock wrench.


Hint: Buy the ebay ones I posted...
