Lug nut size: 21mm vs. 13/16"

This is for 2000 CE model.

Lug nut size:

I am aware that the official size is 21mm. However, I get a perfect fit with 13/16" deep socket from Craftsman. It's tight and grabs it well. 21mm on the other hand is sloppy. It is a generic brand impact socket. The tool that came with the vehicle is also sloppy. Not unacceptably sloppy but not perfect fit like 13/16.

I don't know if the lug nuts are original but see no indication they got replaced.

etc,

You can use whatever fits. Snug is actually better in my book. I would stick with a 6 pointed socket to prevent rounding of the corners of the hex.


Toysrme,

As far as I can remember (and I am on my 4th Camry; 86, 94, 98 and 07) they have always been 21MM. I have seen 19MM (or 3/4) used on some American cars and some 17MM used on aftermarket wheels.

My 98 Camry had 21MM. I am sure. I say had, since that car was totaled. Maybe the cars with alloy wheels have 21MM, since all my cars had/have alloys.

Cool

13/16" = 0.8125
21mm = 0.8267716527
20mm = 0.787401574
19mm = 0.7480314953


I doubt they're 21mm. Probably 19/20mm like 99% of import cars.

Let me go back and check, coz I just bought a set of sockets that goes only till 19mm. Darn it............. I might need to return the set if the lugs are 21mm.

Come to think of it, I have worked on my father-in-laws 01 LE with steel wheels and they were 21MM too. You better go return those new sockets.
