Anybody know the front and rear axle diameters? I think the front is 20mm and rear is 25mm. I have no way to verify the service manual is useless.
Thanks

Got a spare set of '17 wheels here. The ID of both front and rear bearings is 20mm.
You can find out a lot by looking at online parts lists. The generic number for the bearings are generally given, so you can Google those. Front 6004, rear 6204--20mm ID.

Thanks for the info on your wheels.

That is interesting since my front axle is smaller than the rear axle on my 2016 AT (USA spec). Just don't know exactly the size difference.
Thanks again.

I hope you're not assuming that since the nuts are different wrench sizes, the axles are different diameters. '16 and '17 take the same bearings. And if you really, really, really want to know, pull them and measure.
