    Spacers and wheel studs

    I want to add some spacers to my rear wheels but I know to get hardened wheel studs. I wanna do 1/2 inch spacers, they are primarily just for looks and not because my tires are rubbing or anything and I wont be doing any hard launches with the spacers on. So my question is, the wheel bolt pattern is 5x4.75 right? Also I'm not sure what to look for on the wheel studs sizes and such and I need some direction in that sense!

    That is the correct lug nut pattern. You may want to talk to Jeff. He just purchased wheel studs from Moser.

    Ok... I am here.

    The stock wheel stud is 12 x 1.5 mm and is about 1-1/2" long. The Moser and ARP replacement studs in the longer length are 2-1/2 inches. On our car, with the stock Speedlines, I can still install my stock plastic lugnut caps, which is something that I did not expect. Not sure on the bolt pattern, but I can check it tonight with my pattern gauge. Here is the thread: Longer is better! Replacing wheel studs.

    Thanks for the help guys! So to remove the wheel studs, I absolutely have to remove the axle? Cause If I do then I might not do this

    Nope. You can do it on the car by knocking the stock studs out with a hammer and pulling the new studs in with a spacer and a lug nut. Just pull the ABS/TCS sensor and use that hole in the backing plate to do it. I did have to "touch grind" a flat spot on my Moser studs to better clear the reluctor ring.
