NEED HELP: Which socket set do I need to change tires (Corolla, Odyssey)

Hi All,

NEED HELP. I already have an impact wrench. I don't know which socket set do I need to change tires? I own a Corolla and Odyssey.

Please include links.

Thanks in advance.

21 and 19mm. Ensure you buy impact sockets.

It's in your manual.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

How do you have an impact gun but don't know what socket set to use? Follow this guy advice.

I would go manual if you don't want to strip or crack your bolts by over torquing them . It's not that hard.
Up votes, down votes, they're all votes for me! I thank you!

Princess Auto is a good place to keep an eye on for nice sales on sets of deep impact 1/2" drive sockets. Both Metric and SAE. For 19 mm needs, often you can use a 3/4" which is 19.05 mm.

As also stated above, hand tools are preferred by many. Get a breaker bar and a torque wrench IMO.

Impacts are fine to tighten them snug, but not fully. Personally my electric gun has a torque limit and will set them to 70ftlbs, leaving just a few turns with the torque wrench. Or just buy torque sticks.

+1. I don't bother with an impact gun, but it's fine for loosening the nuts. I just quickly loosen the nuts with a breaker bar, then use my drill to spin them off, then on again, then use a torque wrench to secure it properly.

Yes, Check Owners manual.
I have an Accord and the wheel lug nut size is 19mm. Double check your manual.

If you can stay away from air/electric/impact tools, here is a good way to get started with two items totaling $35.98 + tax, both at half price or better, at the current Princess Auto sale (Nov. 14-26, 2017):

I picked up the coloured $19 deep Metrics for nineteen bucks to supplement my existing impact set of the same, as I got in the habit of keeping the matching socket in each vehicle with its lock nut key. Now none are "missing" from my main kit.

AFAIK, the above two deep impact sets were last on sale at PA for $24.99 ("Save 35%") back in July 11-23, 2017. Their sales tend to be cyclical.
