Size of wheel lugs

Anyone tell me the size of the wheel lugs on a 2005 Holiday Rambler Ambassador? Largest wrench I have in my set is 1 1/4 inch. It is too small. Borrowed a 1 3/8 socket from a friend and it fit but loosly. I searched for a 4 way Truck Lug wrench and none of them had 1 3/8 listed in the sizes. Are they metric? Trying to have one in the tool box in case of emergency.

It's probably a 33 MM. Auto-zone has them. Or a 1-5/16- 6 point.

roscoesdad - Do you know the torque requirement for your lugs? Trying to use a 4-way could be totally useless if your chassis lugs require 475 ft lbs torque like many 22.5in wheels.

Perry has it at 33mm (1 5/16 6 side is substitute).

Yes, I do know the torque requirements. I was using the 4 way lug wrench as example that none of them have a 1 3/8 inch end. I plan on using a 3/4 braker bar, impact socket, 4 ft. cheater bar. That should get me off the side of the road if it is required. I can always get the wheel torqued at a truck tire center. I do appreciate your concern.

Yep.
On my lugs it says 500 ft lbs. and they should be oiled too.

DO NOT oil or use never sieze on bolts that require torquing unless it says to. It reduces the torque required to get the correct bolt stretch and can permanently deform the bolt. Once that happens you'll never be able to keep the lug tight.

Larry, do you have a roadside service such as Goodsam or Coachnet. For $99 a year, they will come out and change that tire for you. And a few other things also.

Just a cell phone call away. Some out of the way places, this could be a problem.
