If you own a Land Rover Sport, knowing the wheel nut socket size is important for changing a flat tire or swapping out wheels. The Land Rover Sport wheel nuts require a specific socket size to remove and install safely. In this article, we’ll cover the socket size needed, torque spec, and some aftermarket lug nut options for the Land Rover Sport.

What Size Socket for Land Rover Sport Wheel Nuts?

Land Rover Sports from 2005 to current models use 22mm 12-point lug nuts to secure the wheels. So you’ll need a 22mm 12-point socket to properly remove and install the wheel nuts. Don’t try using a 6-sided 22mm socket, as it risks rounding off the nuts.

Make sure you have a quality 22mm 12-point socket in your toolbox. The wheel nuts are torqued on tightly at the factory, so a cheap socket may round off the nut’s edges. Investing in a solid, hardened steel 22mm 12-point socket will make life easier.

Just be sure it’s a 12-point socket made for impact use. An impact socket set for trucks or SUVs should have the right 22mm 12-point socket included.

What is the Torque Spec for Land Rover Sport Wheel Nuts?

Along with the proper 22mm socket, you’ll need a torque wrench to tighten the Land Rover Sport’s lug nuts to spec. The factory torque spec for the wheel nuts is 103 lb-ft or 140 Nm.

Torquing the nuts to the right spec ensures the wheels are securely fastened without overtightening. Overtorquing can damage the wheel studs or warp the brake rotors. Undertorquing can allow the wheels to gradually loosen over time.

Use a calibrated torque wrench and tighten in a star or crisscross pattern in multiple passes up to 103 lb-ft. Don’t forget to do the final torque check with the full vehicle weight on the ground, not jacked up.

Which BONOSS Wheel Nuts for Land Rover Sport?

While you can reuse the stock Land Rover wheel nuts, many owners choose to upgrade to aftermarket wheel nuts. The BONOSS brand makes direct replacement lug nuts engineered for Land Rover SUVs like the Sport.
