I guess it depends on how much heavy work you will be doing. 3/8 will suffice for most home enthusiast's but half inch might be a better option if you've got heavily rusted or larger stuff to undo. For the price in the op link looks a steal, Bergen used to do pretty decent tools back in the day so if quality hasn't slipped you might be onto a winner

Thanks at the price I think I'll get them. Might come in handy one day

Edit
Or maybe I need 1/2" drive?

Did you buy these in the end and are they any good for nuts and bolts that are slightly rounded?

I struggled with some exhaust clamp bolts a couple of years ago, maybe these might of helped.?

Yep, used to use them a lot back as an hgv mechanic. The design was originally meant for when the corners had been rounded off the nut or bolt iirc. Used to be bloody expensive, but that was 20+ years ago

Iíve used something similar, corners not quite so recessed but still meant to drive on the flats like the ones you have. Were fine, probably better drive than 12 sided sockets.
Iím not convinced they drive any better than a good 6 sided socket but the radius in the corner should make the socket less prone to splitting
Doesnít mention the material unless I missed it but other sets by US Pro are Crome vanadium so should be good.
