I was wondering if anyone here knows the hex size of the spoke nipples used in the Vector Pro wheels from ROLF. The hole size in the rim doesn't allow a standard sized socket (O.D. of socket is too large). I have a buddy's wheel that needs some touching up and I plan on modifying a nut driver or socket to do the job. Thanks!

According to my "Rolf Wheelset Owner's Manual" P/N 3201118...
"Rolf Vector Pro wheels use special self-locking alloy nipples for low weight and resistance to unthreading. These special Rolf nipples require a Wrench Force Rolf-style spoke wrench or other 3/16" nutdriver which will fit throught the access holes in the rim."
