No, not all Chevy lug nuts are the same size. There are various wheel nuts for Chevy sedans, SUVs, and trucks in the market. Most Chevy vehicles use steel wheel nuts. The most common thread sizes that are used by Chevy cars are M14x1.5, 1/2-20 UNF, M12x1.5, and M12x1.25. Basically, the thread sizes of the lug nuts will vary based on the wheel studs. Whereas, the correct seat types will depend on the actual wheel. The Chevy lug nuts are threaded into the wheel studs, with the lug’s seats directly touching the wheels.
Since the hex size of your Chevy lug nuts is 13/16″, you would need a 21mm hex socket to fit. The socket size you’ll need is generally manufacturer specific. Because there are no such universal lug sockets that will fit all sizes of Chevy lug nuts. Besides, when torquing the Chevy lug nuts, a high-quality socket is capable to withstand certain forces. Always choose genuine brand wheel hex sockets. Those cheap chrome sockets can’t handle a proper force and may crack or shatter under stress.
