If you recently purchased or leased a 2024 model year Subaru Crosstrek, you may be wondering what size the lug nuts are for changing a tire or swapping out the wheels and tires. Knowing the proper lug nut size and torque specifications is important to safely secure the wheels to your Crosstrek. In this blog post, we’ll cover everything you need to know about 2024 Subaru Crosstrek lug nuts.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek Lug Nut Size

The lug nuts on the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek are 12mm x 1.25 threaded lug nuts. This is the same lug nut size that Subaru has used on the Crosstrek for several model years.

When shopping for replacement lug nuts or a socket to remove the factory lug nuts, you’ll want to look for the 12mm x 1.25 size. Some common nicknames for this size include:

  • M12 x 1.25
  • 12mm – 1.25 pitch

Make sure to verify the thread pitch of 1.25mm when purchasing replacement lug nuts or sockets. The 12mm measurement refers to the diameter of the threads while the 1.25 is the distance between threads. Both measurements are important to get right for proper fitment.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek Lug Nut Socket Size

To remove the lug nuts on your 2024 Crosstrek, you’ll need a 19mm 6-point socket, also known as a 19mm hex socket. A 6-point socket grips the flat sides of the lug nut better than a 12-point socket.

You can use a 3/4-inch drive socket wrench with a breaker bar for extra leverage to loosen the lug nuts. Or use a 19mm impact socket if you have an impact wrench to speed up the process.

Make sure the socket fully seats on the lug nuts without rounding off the corners. Proper fitment is key to avoid stripping or damaging the lug nuts.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek Lug Nut Torque Specifications

Applying the proper torque when installing lug nuts is critical to safety and preventing wheel vibration. Subaru provides the following lug nut torque specifications for the 2024 Crosstrek:

  • Steel wheels – 88 ft-lbs
  • Aluminum alloy wheels – 97 ft-lbs

Use a quality torque wrench to tighten the lug nuts to spec in a star pattern. Do not exceed these torque specifications or use an impact wrench to install lug nuts, as this can stretch and damage the studs.

It’s also important to re-torque the wheels after driving the first 50-100 miles to ensure the lug nuts have not loosened. Always re-torque wheels anytime they are removed and reinstalled.
