Squealing Brakes

My wife's 08 128i's brakes have started to squeal a bit. I'm thinking some brake quieter grease on the back of the pads should do the trick? Anybody know what size the lugs are on the wheel? I haven't found a wrench small enough to fit them. Thanks in advance...

you might want to check the level of the pads...they might be squealing because you need to replace them...
