I just installed a set of 1/2" spacers yesterday which included the installation of longer studs.

I bought the studs @ NAPA, part #: 641-4208. They were a PITA to get in. Took about an hour for each side.

What tire size/wheel backspacing are you running?

yea, situation is i just sold some 16x8 4"BS and there was a 1/4 spacer on the front i didn't know about. Just bought the truck 4 weeks ago. thru on some stock 5-star 16x7's with 4.5BS, with 285/75R16's they rubbed bad on the UCA's, so i put the spacers back on. I'm worried the lugs aren't safe on there with the spacer, but i have not choice this minute. i got like 6-7 full turns at least when installing the lugs, tq'ed down to about 98ft. im wondering if i should just get .5" longer studs in the front and run a .5" spacer...

here's your :2cents: back :D

how do you install them? physically knock out the old ones and just hammer the new ones in from behind? stock 5-stars with 285/75/R16's.

The stock (6 lug) studs were easy to lighty punch out.
The install was tough... needed to eliminate the dust cover altogether for the way I installed them. If you have access to a portable hydraulic press or something similar, the dust cover would not be an issue.

I lightly hit them with a small sledge to get them started into the original gnurl pattern, then used an impact with a lug nut to pull them in while lightly tapping the backside of the lug... takes 2 people.

I too have 285-75-16's, TC uca's and stock wheels w/ 4.5" BS. After I installed the 1/2" spacers, I do slightly rub.

hmm, i thought you just tap them in with a hammer and use an impact to tighten the lugs. im wondering if i should pay a tire shop to do it, or someone with experience so i don't jack anything up. Still rubs with 1/2 spacers? Mine now only rub when im full clock turned, and only slightly rubbing. I would assume with another 1/4 spacer making mine 1/2 total, shouldn't rub at all.

Im starting to think ahead towards the summer. Got my 6" TM lift going in in a few months, soon as i can save enough $ to get a new rear set up and 4.56-4.88 gears. Im running these 285's for just a short while till i source some nice slightly used 265/75R16's, maybe nitto's or toyo's A/T's (ran both, love them more than BFG's) as im stock 4.1 gearing and can't afford the 315/75R16's i want to run till later.

Like you, I slightly rub when I full lock turn.

If you want to go with 4:88's, I do have an extra 8.4 3rd w/ ARB air locker for sale. PM me.

I installed the 285's and needed to re-gear to 5:29's so I went with a completely new locker.
After reading quite a bit of info here, it was determined that my 2.7 4 banger would not have enough power to pull the 285's with the auto trans... they were right.

screw that, half day? im too old for wheeling all day :p. yea, i think with the new 265/75R16's i got last night (A/T's) and my stock locker, the 4x2 should be able to handle some trails. But i wana get my rear shocks replaced, air up my c/o's with nitrogen, and install the deaver mini 3 pack before she hits the dirt/mud. hemet, thats where old people move to when they retire, or people who can't afford a nice house live :eek:.

Bring'n 'dis one back ttt

Sooo...
I came to realize what I didn't know much about these Tacoma lug bolts.

Googled that they are 40 mm in length...
can I assume they're the same front and rear ?

But the odd thing is...
they're not equal in thread length off the hub surface(s) (front - rear)

I guess the difference of hub thickness is what controls that ?

Anyhow... the rear wheel lug bolts have near 5 - 6 mm more thread bite,
then do the fronts

Was I the only one that didn't realize that ? :eek:

I guess all these years I've always used closed end lug nuts...
and never wondered if the thread count was equal front - rear. :shiner:

But now... this makes me want to install longer lug bolts on the front.

'bout 6 mm longer...
wonder whom makes a 12 X 1.5 lug bolt that much longer ?

Maybe 'dat 4wd_mofo did some homework on 'dis crap...
and has 'de answer for me ? ! :D

You can get after market lugs with the right size base from summit or jegs but they are pretty long. I bought a set and trimmed them with a angle grinder / cutting wheel. They are sold as racing studs for a Lexus.
l'll dig up a part #

Did you chase the threads out
or what trick to ensure the nuts thread well ?

Me do homework? HA! thats a good one. I currently have some aftermarket chrome lugs, they barely slide on due to the size of them and the spacer on my truck right now with stock 5-star wheels. Been driving it hard (on-road) and the lugs aren't getting loose at all up front so i think im safe. Im wondering, would i be able to throw a 1/4 spacer in the rear or am I going to loose too much threading when i try it...
