All your lugnuts are 19mm. You need to remove the RF tire.

The backwards bolt is the lowest bolt on the right side of the bellhousing.

My lugnuts are splined and do not have a traditional hex size.

ALL of them? From the factory, only one on each wheel should be.

My 02 SSEi wheels don't have center caps that cover the lugs. So I bought pretty chrome ones that require a special socket.

Then your vehicle is non-stock and no one can tell you what tools you need. Boosty mentioned that the 19mm was for the lugnuts and you already knew yours weren't stock. Modify the directions to fit your non-stock car.

Ok, well... the rest of my nuts and bolts are stock. I saw lugnuts and thought of my wheel lugs but was trying to figure out where there could be any other nuts that could be called lugs.

John....Yer a Lugnut...lol

Guess I should have mentioned, if you've changed things and know them to be non-stock, the size may be different than expected.

I'm betting when I get my engine out, I've got bad ring(*) somewhere. It'* been burning oil longer than it'* been making metal specs.

So yes, ALMOST unheard of... till you heard it from me.
