rear wheel hub replacement

im having a bit of difficulty in getting the rear offside wheel hub off my clio dci 03. basically I can't undo the four nuts at the back. They are a weird star shaped nut which at first I thought a 10 mill socket would fit but didn't, so im wondering if i need a specific type of socket or spanner.

I believe these bolts are the torx headed type.

You will require the correct size torx socket to remove & replace them.
On reassembly they will also need to be tightened to the correct torque.
