Going to bleed brakes, but my ez bleed is elsewhere.

I have a bit of 5mm (Internal size) tube for rear brakes.

Question what is the perfect size for front bleed nipples on a disc braked car, 7mm internal diameter seems about right, can someone confirm?

Not easy to answer as there are more than one size used on the front (and rear) depending on the producer.

seems to be a 7mm nipple, but obv the end of the nipple is 8mm, hence my question as may need 8mm pipe?
