Should just be a 17mm socket to remove wheel nuts unless you have a locking nut on each wheel.

could be a 19mm as well as i bought some s/hand as these bolts have a habit of breaking and these were 19mm. There are extendble wheel wrenchesfor sale that have both sizes on a reversible socket, had mine for years. Check B & M or home bargains, Halfords if you want to pay alot.
