What is the metric to size for 7/16's? I may be installing a billet grill tomorrow. This is way out of my league!!! Thanks and see ya!!

I know a 13mm is almost a 1/2. I cannot apply logic to figuring what I need though. Maybe 12mm??
 
well 3/4" is almost exactly 19mm

17mm and 11/16 are very close

but no US Standard size is equal to any metric size...

7/16 should be around 11mm
3/8 is around 10mm

You need to use the right size so If you don't have a set of metrics and/or US Standard sockets your should invest in a set of either or both

Thanks!! I have 2 wrenches to use. I just wondered though.
If I bought them, I would not use them enough to get my money's worth!!

There is no good metric conversion for 7/16. But Greg is right 11mm is as close as you will get, but it fits kinda sloppy and if it is rusted in or very tight you will strip out the nut/bolt. Go to sears and get the right tool for the job, you will be better off in the long run.

Take the decimal equivalent of any fraction and multiply by 25.4 to get the metric size.
reverse the formula to get English. i/e .500 *25.4 =12.7mm
