    whats the length of stock wheel studs?

    I keep seaming to break the front wheel studs and want to replace w/ some stronger ones maybe APRs.

    I haven't changed any yet becauce I've sean APRs on WS6 stock rims they stick out way to much for me however I have aftermarket rims SSR intral
    GT1s and the lug nut is way inside the rim I'll post an image.

    with my rims having the lug nut way inside the rim will the APRs still stick out?

    also can the heads of the SSR lug nuts be cut off since the APR studs are longer?

    Thanks

    Just get the shorter of the 2 ARP studs kits that are available.
    Then you can either cut the studs down or buy some open ended lugnuts.
    I personally am going with open end lugs cause I'm not as worried about appearence as I am about function.

    ARP doesn't make a stock length stud.

    Just 2.5" and 3.25"
    I personally have the 3.25" studs on my car because of the ProStars. Looks a touch silly when the TTII's are on the car, but that is life.

    Why are you wanting ARP studs? Do you need them? I know the stockers aren't the strongest, but should hold up just fine under most conditions unless they are cross threaded.
