If you own a 2010-2020 model year Lexus is250, knowing the proper lug nut size and torque specifications is important for safe wheel installation.

What size socket are Lexus is250 lug nuts?
A 19mm lug wrench is needed to remove or install the factory lug nuts on Lexus is250 models from 2010-2020. High quality chrome vanadium sockets are ideal for longevity and preventing damage to the lug nut surfaces. Ensure the socket is in good condition without excessive wear.
What torque spec are Lexus is250 lug nuts?
Lexus specifies a tightening torque of 76 lb-ft for the lug nuts on the is250. This torque spec should be followed with a calibrated torque wrench to prevent under or over tightening. Under tightening can allow wheels to loosen over time, while over tightening can damage the studs or wheel. Tighten the nuts in a star pattern sequence for even loading. Check the torque with a wrench after any wheel service and at regular intervals during ownership.
