Default Grab your lug nuts

I have a 2004 with 365,000klms or approximately 200,000 miles

Yes, it is still going strong. Here is my question....

I have factory chrome rims.
Basically, they are an aluminum rim
with a plastic chrome dressing permanently attached.
Each wheel is mounted with 4 - 19 mm lug nuts
and 0ne lug nut slightly smaller with a removable sleeve .

Does anyone else have this...?
Is anyone out there familiar with this...?

Welcome to the forum. Are you in the U.S.? All U.S. PT Cruisers came with 5 lugs on each wheel (5 X 100). Should I move your post over to the European side of the forum?

All your lug nuts are probably like that. Just one "sleeve" came off. I have had the same problem with mine. You can usually use an 18mm on them if the cover is off. Either that or the larger ones are aftermarket.

This is a 300, but same basic thing:

Welcome to the forum from Texas. Is it possible that the smaller lug nut is a "locking" nut? If so, they usually take a special socket/tool to remove. If you recently purchased it, check the glove box and see if the tool is in there. You might check both compartments in the cargo area also.

It might be good to see a picture of them.
