Default Axle Nut Size?

While changing my belts on my 1997 SSEi I found I have a bad front wheel bearing. The biggest MM socket I have is 30 and it'* too small. Anybody remember the correct size before I haed to the parts store for a new bearing? I'd like to get the socket at the same time.

I just replaced the front wheel bearing on my '95. It took a deep 33 MM size socket.

a 1 1/4" socket will work. i have seen some that take a 36 mm socket too but the 1 1/4" should definitly work for you.

On mine, a 1 1/4" was just a hair too small. An 1 5/16" would have worked, it was a hair sloppy. But I used the 33MM since I was able to borrow one.

I ended up using a friend'* 34mm. It was just a little bit sloppy, but not to where I felt it might slip. I'm betting the 33mm was the correct answer, but the 34mm will work.
