What size allen wrench do you use to remove the center caps on GTU wheels?

My allen wrench set says 3/15 and it fits without a problem but it may be 3/16 try it.

thats wierd
I don't use allen wrenchs much, so maybe I don't know hat is going on with their sizing.  But I've never seen anything sized to 15ths of an inch and if somehting was 3/15 they would call it 1/5th instead of 3/15.  Ow well Ill leook at our wrenches when I get back home.

It is 3/16, you either have a funky wrench or the script got messed up.

3/15ths must be a Canadaian sized wrench.  ;) 3/16 sounds makes more sense to me. Odds are the numbers got scratched, I can't read the numbers on my 13mm anymore.

And just for the record, the wrench size is more specifically a 5mm.  If you don't already have a 5mm I would recommend getting one before you strip out the screws.

I think mine are metric, but they fit snug...  No wiggle or slop in the fit.  Maybe they were replaced?

Ikea, love that place, most of the time I go there for some lunch..

As for the tool, check them stockies and get the Mcgard locks.   They are really nice.
