If you mean the plastic push on covers, they're 19mm.

I shouldn't bother with the chrome ones if you use any form of traffic film remover or visit the local car wash. The TFR removes the chrome after only a couple of washes and the covers turn white.

That's probably the size of the only spanner they've got in their workshop.

Why not paint them, Dealerships have the valets use acid based cleaners as they clean the wheels quicker for a fast turn around, But it stains the caps, Painting then clear coat gives them a good protection, Also winter salt does the same in staining the caps, Next service visit remove them before the service.
