    It's been 19mm for years on most cars whether Japanese or European or American.

    That's funny because all of my Japanese and European cars have had 19mm. Maybe I've been buying the exceptions?

    There are lots of cars with 19mm, that is certainly true.

    VW, and I believe BMW & Volvo, use 17mm lug bolts. My wife's Matrix has 21mm lug nuts.
