wheel lug question


Lebowski

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if I will need to use longer wheel studs like the ones Aardvarc and IE sell if I use an 8mm spacer? I'm looking at some wheels with an offset of 37, but I don't think I'll buy them if it wil require spending the money for longer wheel studs. Thanks in advance...

when you put in longer wheel studs, they may be real long.

If so, your stock lug nuts may not fit.

A couple of options:

First, if you have the lug nuts with the removable ends, take those off and the the stud will pass through

Secondly, Jeff sells lug nuts that allow the studs to pass through.

Having some of these type lug nuts around make it easy to secure brake drums to the flange while adjusting brakes without the wheel and tire on.

Thanks guys for the replies. I think I'll pass on the wheels, the deal's not good enough to justify the expense of buying 14 new wheel studs and having them installed. I really appreciate the help!

Especially considering that after buying 14, you'd have to go back for 2 more!

I guess it was a long night at work last evening.... you guys don't have the "Euro spec 14 lug conversion"... ;)

Thanks all.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
