Question on brake line flare wrench

Hi guys! I'm about to replace my original brake lines in my 2012 grand Cherokee 3.6L with some Stop Tech stainless ones. I've read in my Haynes repair manual and searched around but can't seem to find what size the nut is.

Anyone happen to know what size flare wrench is needed there? Reason I ask is I just checked at a local O'Reileys and they were $7-8 each so I just want to grab the correct one and not spend money unnecessarily.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Question on brake line flare wrench

Just an update for other future brake line removers.....I never got an answer from anyone so I found out:

bleeder valve - 10mm
Top of brake line - 17mm
Bottom nut - 12mm

STRONGLY recommend getting line wrenches. Got a set today at O'Reileys for about $19-20.

Re: Question on brake line flare wrench

Here's a link for the Line/Flare wrench set I found in case anyone needs it:

PowerTorque Tools GM0031 - Flare Nut Wrench Set | O'Reilly Auto Parts

Additional Edit: Forgive me for not writing it down but I believe I also had to use a 7/16" to hold the nut on stainless line itself, then the 12mm on the hard line itself.

Hope my ramblings help!
