Hi folks,
I am changing my tires and need to buy the right metric socket size. I consulted the service manual, owners manual, and parts book and I cannot find the sizes only proper torque. I'm guesstimating the front is something like 21-23 mm and the rear is 31? Can someone enlighten me? Also when changing a tire are you all replacing the oil seals? Thank you in advance...

By oil seal do you mean the dust seals that keep the bearings clean? I only replace them if they are damaged.
I not sure. Just looking at the disassembling of the front tire there is the oil seal, the wheel bearing, and the spacer. The service manual advises replacing the oil seal. Is that what you are referring to?


Thank you for your replies!!!
