    The 7/8" socket should work also but it will be slightly more loose compared to the proper 22mm socket. 7/8" is only 0.009" larger than 22mm.

    The lug nuts have an "M" on them to indicate they are metric.

    By the way, the plastic on these sockets protects the paint on the wheel, NOT the lug nut itself. I discarded the original 2 piece lug nuts the first week I owned the car and replaced them with McGard 22mm black chrome acorn nuts.

    Steve White Motors has the 22" Socket for $8.95 but I'm not sure what his shipping charge is but I do know that Summit Racing will price match that price but you have to spend $100 there to get the free shipping.
