I'm going to get some chrome wheel nut covers :cool: but they come in two sizes :confused: 17mm and 19mm. Does anyone know what size i would have on my facelift 156?

Thanks,

Todd.

A facelift would have come with 17mm hex.
But that doesn't automatically mean you still have 17mm hex, they could be 19mm...

you could always measure them to be sure.

Just answered my own question by checking against my spares from the locking hweel nuts in my boot that i forgot i had.

Are the wheel sizes nuts interchangeable ?? Is the only difference the hexagon across flat size ??
In the 147/156 yes.
Original 156 had 19mm hex, 147 came out with 17mm hex and around the same time the 156 changed over to 17mm hex too.
Bolt lengths remained the same.

Anyone with a GTA skinny spare needs 5x considerably longer bolts in the boot to use with that spare though..... it has caught a few people out!
