Howdy-- a microfiche misled me a bit, so I'm hoping someone here has an easy answer.

I'm going to be doing my first tire change (the dealer did the last couple) this weekend, but I'm not sure what size wrench I'll need for the rear wheel. Does anyone know this offhand?

While your down at the tool store, get yourself
a torque wrench capable of 146Nm 102ft/lbs to go with that 46mm socket
a 36mm 6/12 point hex socket for the front sprocket.
a 19mm allen adaptor for the front wheel spindle
T30 T35 T40 & T55 torx bits for the various bolts on the sprint

and that lot should about cover most basic home garage repairs

Good call on the Torque wrench....

add to the haul of tools by buying a 2' breaker bar, and a butt plug!

the breaker bar (unless you have a impact driver) will make undoing that sucker much easier, and the butt plug is to stop venting when you get the come free crack sound that sometimes occurs!!

In fact I went to Screwfix and got the Torque wrench and breaker bar, but had to go to a specialist tool store here to get the socket and the 3/4" 2 1/2" adaptor

Good luck, and make sure that as you remove the nut, bevel washer, cone and sundries that you keep them in the same orientation.

Somewhere on the forum, our resident guru OnD uses various odd keyboard characters to show which way round they should all be used, so if you mess up there is a thread here to help you, but woe betide you if you don't search first!!!!!!:D

This is the local shop I got mine from. Don't bother searching the site, they aren't there. Ring them and they will have it.

Beesleys

Alternatively someone is putting the socket and adaptor up on ebay fairly regularly at the moment

ebay

Seems quite a reasonable price too!

Shoot guys way to much work to get tools. I just call my friendly snap-on guy with my order. He comes to my office, gets buzzed in and brings the stuff right into my office. I can get my fix of tools and I don't even have to get up from my desk. The stuff is brought straight to me, works great... Then I wake up and the dream is over :(

Nope use Fleabay to purchase a snap-on 46mm impact socket with 1/2" drive. Works great and was dirt cheap. Pain to find locally, could have gone standard at sears but the socket had 3/4" drive so would have had to use an adapter and did not want to, went snap-on because of that.
