Ireland has about 3 different options. In stock. Be careful with some. They are VERY long. I almost had to cut mine down.

I bought the 12X65MM ARP ones from Ireland and they fit perfectly with a 10MM spacer on both front and rear wheels (stock brake system). Do you have the wheel specs? that might help everyone to determine what spacers/studs/etc you might want to try.

Some wheels are too thick in the hub section for the stock studs, he posits, and there are some studs out there

that are listed as replacements that are even shorter than stock...

...there is a Dorman that is a bit (maybe 7mm?) longer than stock, and it's $cheap.  I forget which-

the Dorman website gives details...

My BBS RA are like this, had to have the Ireland Studs pressed in because the old studs not long enough, I think its a VW size wheel.


Of course now I want to put on flares and spacers for the wide stance since I have the studs to do it...
