So I had aftermarket replica PP wheels from voxx. It took smaller lug nuts than OEM, I bought gorilla acorn lug nuts. They fit in these new rohana wheels, but I cant get the socket into the holes. Its basically the exact same size, I think its 19mm or 3/4 if I recall. I tried finding super small socket but I just cant find one. I am looking for new lug nuts and cant find the correct one for my car. I was told I need spline, but all the ones I find are super stupid long.

the shop didnt have the right lugs for me either, so they gave me a long truck lug nut til I could find the correct ones. reason I am asking is I purchased the wrong lug nuts tonight and I dont want to keep buying wrong nuts to fit this stupid wheel.

Just want the smallest/sturdy chrome lug nut to fit in to the damn new wheels. I have been on amazon and google for an hour googling spline lugs, but they are all like 3 inches tall like what's on my wheel, or the ones dont look like the sockets will fit into the hole like I have now.

on this page I found this- the small one on the top right of pic. that looks like it could work, but I cant find that darn lug item number. I keep finding the 2 inch ones. ! annoying

I keep finding pictures via google searching, but when I click on the short pic it always takes me to the extended versions.

thank you. I dont know why google wouldn't pop that up, ive been looking all day. was panicking thinking they only had 2 inch long versions.

This being spline, means it should be smaller than the 19mm socket correct? because thats why I cant use those. ordering these now.

I think I have the same ones. When I ordered winter wheels the same style spline lugs came with them, for extra $$$ of course, as OEM lugs are too fat for the lug holes. They’re pretty skinny. The key can fit a 19mm and whatever the oem lug hex is so you don’t have to get a different tire iron.

let me go take some measurements for you. This is what they look like when I was test fitting for the Brembo brakes.

The routine auto shops (autozone, oreillys) will usually carry thin walled sockets for those lugs you have

Sorry, wife made dinner. Had to eat first lol.

the ones I have are 1.34” tall. Diameter around the thickest part is 20mm. Diameter around the splines is 17.6mm. The diameter of the key is 20.5mm. The head of the key is dual pattern. First 19mm and 21mm or 3/4 and 13/16.

Use a digital caliper to measure the lug hole. I was thinking about getting 19mm hex acorn nuts with a thin wall socket. The thin wall socket according to Amazon is 26.9mm outside diameter for the 19mm socket. My lug hole is 28.5mm. Not much room for error.

Can you link me to the super thin socket? That might work for me

Idk

1.34 inch tall I think is fine. Will work just fine for me I think.
