Wheel nut size?

Started to check the torque on my lugs today, and found that I didn't have a socket the correct size (guess they are metric). I did a search, but could not find the answer. Anybody know the size? WK2 Overland.
thanks

Thanks,
I tried the 7/8 but it seemed really sloppy, I was afraid of rounding off the nut corners. Looks like I'll buy a six sided 22.

Purchased a chrome and black impact socket at Sears. Have the blue torque stick for the reinstallation.

Re: Wheel nut size?

Just swapped my wheels out for the Summer set and can confirm that I used a 6 sided 22mm socket. Worked perfectly... Manual says to torque to 100 ft lbs.
