Just changed my lug bolts from 15mm heads to 17mm heads.

I got them here...

RAD Lug Bolt 12mmx1.5, 25mm Shank, R12 Ball Seat, Hex 17

Also available on Amazon too.

The black plastic cap in the center no longer fits, but it is no great loss.

Now I can use the small x-wrench from Autozone.

Torqued to 85 ft lb too...

Ever try and get a lug nut off with a socket wrench?
Also, a lot of the state breakdown trucks or Triple A will change a flat for you, but they do not have 15mm either...
Long run a common size, 17mm, is better.

Longer run a more common size, 5/8" (15mm). 11/16" (17mm).
