Question Wheel Lug Size?

OK. I want to start doing my own Tire rotations so.........Does anyone know what the wheel lug size is for the SVT? I know it's Metric and I measured 19mm but I just want reassurance before I go out and buy a socket set and a Torque wrench. Thanks

P.S. - Same goes for a 2004 Expedition Eddie Bauer if anyone has one or knows what their lug nut size is? Want to do the same to the wife's SUV. Thanks again.

So Ford uses a Metric Socket size for the Expedition as well????? I would think they would use a Standard size being that it's American and all. Now the Focus I could understand, being a global car in Europe and such. Thanks so much for the info!!!!!

If you want to use standard SAE sockets, 19mm=3/4in and 21mm=13/16in (closely enough for the lugnuts anyway)

Just go buy a Gorilla wrench. It's what places like Les Schwab and Discount tire use to break lug nuts free. it's an extendable breakerbar that comes with 4 different thin wall sockets. one fits the stock focus' and theres another that will fit wheels lock keys. costs like 20 bucks

Here's what mommy should have told you to do when you downshift:
1. Step on the clutch
2. Simultaneously slide the shifter into a lower gear and give the throttle a quick, amazingly precise jab to rev the engine to exactly the rpm it needs to be at in the next gear
3. Quickly let out the clutch

Oh sure, It takes a few thousand tries before you get the timing and precision of your jab just right, but the reward is that you no longer suck.

It's not the wrench I want but the ability to torque them correctly. Thanks.

One of these will do the trick...>>> Clicky
Holy Cripes. At $9.99, that's a screamin' deal.
There's quite a few of those "generic" Harbor Freight ones floating around,
and I haven't heard of any problems at all.

You can pay more for a better brand name...>>> Clicky
If you were building an engine, I'd say go with the SK, or a comparable brand.
For the lugnuts, +/- 4% from the generic is plenty good enough.

BTW, 95-98 lb-ft is what you want to set yours at for the fOCUS lugnuts.
And, DON'T use a torque wrench to remove them!
Use a breaker bar for that operation.
