Hmmm I would take one lug nut off and go to the store with it. Then match it up that way.

I had the same problem when I got my new wheels. I'm not sure what size you need because the size I thought I needed was wrong according to the tire shop I went to (and yes I trust them, the company I work for does about 7-8K a month business with them). They told me the lug stud size can vary according to build date. My advice is to go to a tire shop & get them to size it.

Here's your answer, I thought it was 14mm x 2.00 off the top of my head but had to confirm it. It can be found on this application guide from Gorilla(page 21 to be exact), a very common and reputable lug nut/bolt company. I have a set of 14x2.00 on my wheels which is what you're takes. Also the first and last few pages offer very good info about lug nut sizing and torquing, by the way 14mm is the diameter of the stud and 2.00 is the length.

Thats the guide I went by too. But my lugs turned out to be 14x1.5 RH.
Go to a tire shop & have them check you lugs, it will save you time & trouble!
