I haven’t had to change them on my own yet, but a road accident is only as far away as the next daffed character who drops metal shrapnel off the back of his lorry. I’m going to buy an alloy wheel wrench, and I don’t want to be in the middle of changing my tire, to find out how to do it.

Anyone had to remove the lugs from their XE wheels yet? If so,

1. What teir and what size wheels do you have (Base w/ 17” wheels, Portfolio with 18”, etc…)?

2. Are your lugs 17mm, 18mm, 19mm?

3. Are the shiny lug heads we see as we walk near the car… are they the ACTUAL lug head, or just a decorative cover you have to pry off to reach the real lug nut behind it?

I've never changed my own tires so this is new territory for me, but from the looks of it those are the actual lug heads and not just decorative covers because of their shape.

Giving the fact that more than 3 years have passed since your initial post, I suppose you've managed to change your wheels already. Therefore, I would like to get an update about how your car is doing, and what changes have you made in the last 3 years? I hope you didn't have any kind of accidents during this time, because some of these accidents can have a negative impact not on your health, but also on your mental state and the long-term consequences are always unknown. There are places like getinjuryanswers.com where anyone can find an answer for every question one might have about car accidents.
