17mm or 19mm socket for lug bolts

Dumb question, I guess.

I did a search and found that the answer is a 17mm socket - so why on the ECS tuning site does the 19mm socket show up under the mk7 and 7.5 GTI?



Do I need a 19mm socket or a 17mm socket for my breaker bar and torque wrench? Im sitting at work all week, and I have had my car for less than a week. I did a quick search in the owners manual and didnt see 19 or 17mm listed. I have zero free time right now to even check myself - granted I dont have a thin wall socket anyways and need to buy one or both.

Thanks!

maybe the lock is 19? I remember my car being 17 though. I have a couple of these kits anyway because I'm always changing bolts and locks:

Yeah might be best just to get that set and go with what works LOL. Thanks.

Get one of these. Will keep wheels from getting scratched.
