Socket sets come in all shapes and sizes, so you should be able to find one that matches your specific needs. Many sets have a wide range of sockets with attachment sizings to accommodate most common nut and bolt gauges.
The best sets are made with high-quality steel and have a hardy finish that won't chip or shatter when used with an impact wrench. For example, the Tools 192-piece chrome vanadium ratchet and socket set includes both SAE and metric sockets in most of the popular sizes to cover all of your work.
For a less-expensive option, consider the 39-Piece Socket Set with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet that comes with an adapter to use with 1/4-inch sockets. It also includes a 3-inch extension bar and a spin disk that loosens nuts and bolts quickly.
A good set should have a wide selection of sockets with varying head sizes, including pass-through sockets that offer extra depth in certain applications. This means that you'll be able to align your nut on the top of the socket before it touches the end of the stud or bolt.
