Removing Rear Wheel Nut - What Size?

What tools do I need to remove the nut as seen in this picture for a 2013 mag bonniville?



I guess whatever size socket/wrench to remove the tire is what I need. Might as well get it all.

Thanks!

if you don't have metric spanners, 3/4" and 15/16" is a precise fit, matter of fact the latter fits snugger

Whitworth

1/2 " whitworth is i think the snuggest fit. No rounding to the bolt head. Oh and just use a stilson on the other end!!

Ok I'll see what I have in standard. I bought the tools suggested but don't mind getting whatever is needed for proper fitment. I am building my collection.

A stilson is often called a pipe wrench and is not to be used on your pride and joy. It is about as far removed from a well fitting spanner as you can get!
At the end of the day the most important thing is fit. So if you only have an A/F spanner and it fits well, then use it.
