    Running bars, tinted window (, TSB mod ,885 coils, OME shocks up front, AAl and procomp 9000 out back, partially debadged/black out the others, weathertech floor mats, grillcraft grill, TRD skid plate
    Heads a spinning,,,, little upset..... I was going to take my wheels off to add the AAL and spacers BUT I couldn't find a socket to fit right... So I call around and find someone to tell me it a 13/16 or 21 MM Socket. mechanic said he uses a 13/16. Well it doesn;t fit on there very well. It looks to me like the lugs have chrome caps on them but he said they do not come off. On one wheel the 13/16 was able to remove 3 of the 6 lugs and barely went on them.. I think I screwed up one lug and now have to figure out how to get it off ( Kinda rounded) AKA I got mad mistake) but not completely. Whats the trick, I am somewhat handy and have taken wheels off other vehicle 1000 times.. Help....

    13/16 will be a little too small. You need the 21mm.
