    Wheel Studs

    I bought a used Moser 9" and it came with ARP studs already on it. The problem is that they are 1.5" longer than the stock ones. What should I do? Buy longer lug nuts (do they exist?)? Swap out the ARP studs for the stockers?

    Get a set of the open ended lug nuts, so the stud goes all the way through. Got mine from summit racing.

    Longer studs are a must for dragraceing and are required if you run slicks. Just use some open ended lugbuts like mentioned above.

    longer wheel studs are for people who run wider rims with spacers and open ended lugs let you know the wheels on right cause ive had a few lugs come off while on the highway and then bought longer studs and open ended lugs
