I'm looking for input from someone who has these wheels:
If you have these wheels, could you please look at the front lug nuts and see if all the threads of the nut are engaged?
Or to answer my question in another way, does anybody know if the stud length is different on models with the wheels shown above vs. the stud length on models with these wheels (stock steel wheels with chrome covers):
Reason I ask is I bought a used set of the top wheels above off of a 2001 Explorer, and they fit perfect in terms of center bore, bolt spacing, back spacing, etc. The only issue is when I put the wheels on the hubs, there is less stud length visible "poking" through the wheels. On the backs there are still enough threads so I can engage all the threads on the lug nuts. However on the fronts, even when fully tightened, there are 1-2 threads left visible in the lug nuts that aren't engaged.
I'm hoping to determine if this is a safety issue or not. So far I have been checking the torque on the lug nuts and they don't seem to be loosening at all.
Thanks for your help!
