Longer wheel studs.

Im wanting to get longer wheel studs to put on the adapters. Just to be safe. They have been riding fine. But after looking at them i wouldnt mind longer ones.

12x1.5 on the adapter studs..

Anyone know where i can get some longer ones?

It would be hard anyway, to hammer out the excisting studs on the adapter.

Anyone have any experience ordering them from anyone?

Thanks

What you need to know is the Knurl size of the stud. Thats the part of the stud that 'locks' into the hub/adapter. Contact the manufacturer and ask them what the Knurl is for the adapters.

Oh, you will also need to know the shoulder measurement too. Believe me, its not as easy as you think it would be. I was looking for longer studs for my Ranger and it became a nightmare. Ended up just getting Acorn Lug Nuts with a shank on the end.

autozone doesnt have longer lugs, they only have stock sizes, you need ones from summit, jegs, or similar performance stores
