I purchased a 2013 1500 with alot of modifications, including 17 x 9 XD Wheels. All the tire shops at closed on Sunday and I'm trying to figure out what size Spline Socket I need. All the ones a the part stores are too small. Hel!

Amazon sells just the socket. Custom wheel shop should have one too.

You can get BOTH 6 spline and 7 spline sockets for $13. Or just one for about $8.

Most likely they are aftermarket gorilla spline drive lugs, they’re the most common for aftermarket wheels. I don’t seem to have the socket part number saved but can grab it tomorrow. Look for a rectangular silver sticker that says Gorilla on it, it will have the socket number on it also. Might be on in the inside of the glovebox, door jamb etc but the previous owner might not have even put it on.

Unfortunately a no go on it being in the truck. All the auto part stores are closed. No idea on the size I'd be looking for?

I posted above. It's either 6 spline or a 7 spline. Go count the splines on your lugnuts.

Thanks again for the info I've been looking up stuff on this forum forever, but just actually joined. The sites still new to me.

Not all spline sockets are the same, has to be for your particular brand of lugs. Post a pic of the lug nuts to confirm they are gorilla brand and I can get you the socket number.
