Lug Nut Size

Can someone help me choose what size lug nuts I need for my new 19?

Lug nuts are 1/2"-20. It appears you may be looking for locking lug nuts in which case the brand you found is probably fine or there are others like these:

It would be interesting to have a poll regarding locking lug nuts. I personally would not install them on my Escape BUT I live in a low theft area and my trailer is stored out-of-view.
My spouse had locking lug nuts on her first Honda CR-V (2013) and they were such a PITA I replaced them with non-locking lug nuts. Her updated CR-V (2018) did not come through with them, so I am guessing that Honda has made them optional, either for profit reasons OR because too many people complained about them. When I replaced the 4 lockers on the 2013, the parts guy told me a lot of customers had done the same thing. YMMV!

Hi Carl
How are you doing? It’s an honest 2 degrees in Sunny Iowa this morning with a refreshing breeze that makes it feel like -14. I bought some locking lug nuts for the 19 but never installed them. Instead I have three on the spare tire holder and a couple spares with the specialty socket in my tool box. I had locking lug nuts on a couple Mercury’s I had. I never had a problem but several times had calls from the shops that were working on them and couldn’t
Locate the socket which lived in the glove box from start to finish. I’d rather have a couple spare conventional lug nuts for the tow rig and the Escape than the lockers. Stay safe and warm for now.

Hi Dave
Both Gail and I are doing well. Weather in Florida has been cooler than the usual winter weather. Getting ready to head for Scamp Camp in the 30th. I doubt the rally will be anything near what we would like rallies to be but it gets us to different surroundings for a couple of weeks. You should consider Florida sometime for a winter respite. While Alf usually spends 3-4 weeks here in January, but obviously not here this year. But I do have “Campsite #1” as well as 30 amp/water hookup for a second trailer. And no snow to relocate!

When our van was new the locking nuts came with the van, but not installed - the dealer installed them, and that was the normal practice. If Honda does the same thing, the 2018 might not have come with them, or they just might not have been installed.

Long ago I lost the key for our van's locking nuts, and had a dealer take them off and replace them with standard nuts. The most recent time that I bought a used vehicle from a dealer, I had that dealer replace the locking nuts with standard nuts as part of the purchase. I hate the things, and have no intention to ever use them again.

I am buying them so that thieves can’t bypass my 2 wheel locks and change the the wheels.
