Socket doesn't fit rtx wheels

Post by qwertyjjj »

I have a 19mm socket and impact bar.
Took off my current stock Volvo wheels to fit RTX contour ones with the winter tires and the socket won't fit the holes. I presume the lug nuts are too big as well.
What lug nuts would I need to still work with the v70?

Sockets with thin walls are available. Some have a rubbery coating to prevent scratches.
Compare the cost of a 19mm to that of the set.
The sets I've seen have 4 sockets.

Your RTX wheels may or may not require specific lug bolts.

Any ideas what lug bolts it might be?
Tuner ones maybe?
What is the v70 stock lug nut size and length?

Apparently I need a 19mm chrome socket instead of an impact socket.

"Chrome" means what exactly? Some come brightly colored.
Impact sockets are thicker and frequently don't fit alloy wheels.
As far as length goes, you're the one who has possession the hardware which needs to be measured.
Are your lug bolts original or aftermarket or have they been replaced with OEM?
Not too much we can do for you as we don't know what you have. Which RTX style wheel do you have (if that's even the right question)?
