A1/A2 wheel nut wrench compatibility?

Postby Bernie » January 16th, 2017, 5:51 pm

Hi,

It's hard for me to find a wheel nut wrench for my A2. There's one in eBay for the A1.
Are the wheel nut diameters of A1 & A2 identical, so that I can use this tool ?
I would appreciate if somebody would let me know - thank you!


Greetings, Bernie (from Germany)

I think the A2 wheel nuts are 1/2", the 151a1 is 7/16"? I have a 151 that is 7/16" I'll go out and measure them in a half hour or so

The A1 uses 11/16" wrench size and the A2 uses 3/4" wrench size. The correct tool for the A2 for the most part was a double ended tool with 11/16" on one end and 3/3" on the other. The A1 tool only had the 11/16" on one end.

You had the wheel stud sizes mixed up with the lug nut sizes.
