Longer Wheel Studs
Posted by: Nick_Soapdish ()

I have to space the rear wheels on my FC out by about 3/8", so I'm looking for longer studs. I've found Dorman 610-186 listed as stock, but I'm coming up empty on anything more than 1/4" longer with the same pitch, knurl, etc.

I found some ARP ones that would work with some cutting/drilling, but would prefer to avoid that if possible (not to mention spending >2x as much).

Anyone got a line on studs with 3/8" or more extra length?

I don't know about the FC but I used 68 Corvette studs for my LM

On it as always! Is that .015" difference in diameter noticeable, or can they be crammed in there as-is?

If they are the same as an EM I used Raybestos 1677B that were about 3/8" longer than stock on my '64 Spyder.

I got these from Summit Racing. Sold in packs of 10. Works well with my American Racing wheels.
