I recently mounted a set of BFG 33-12.50s on my rig and and the wheels I used where 15x10 procomps with a 3.75 backspace. to make the wheels work we had to use a quarter inch wheel spacer. now I'm left with the dilemma of finding longer wheel studs.

help me find a direct replacement stud thats longer. I've searched high and low, and can't find anything.

I'm open to maybe changing over to a 1/2 inch standard stud and just drilling out the hub to make finding them easier.

the size on the truck is a m12-1.5 with a 14.2 mm knurl, 8mm shoulder, and 40 mm thread. I need something that is about 60mm

Have you tried longer shank lugs?

I thought of that at first, but the wheels I have wont allow for a long shank lug. I'm thinking I'm going to have to switch to a standard size stud, like a 1/2 13, and use an open end lug. So that means either drilling the hub, or tack welding the new stud in place.

I checked that possibility too. all auto parts stores show just one part number for the whole truck. so I pulled one out of the front and the back of the truck to compare (sounds stupid, but took 15 minutes during routine maintenance) and there are no difference in size.

My rears are also longer than the front..I run rear studs in the front with 1/4" spacers in the front, works fine.

I bought the lexus ARP studs. they set me back over 100 bux, however they were a pefect fit and were an inch longer over the factory stud. I did go with an open ended lug nut and everything worked just fine.

I just don't understand why so many people have longer studs in the rear than the front because mine are not. both front and rear are the same length and that's why I was having trouble.

I'm gonna be puttin up some pics soon, and I'll get a close up of the studs for ya.

90942-02052 is the toyota part number that i came up with. i just am curious if there are any downfalls to using the rear studs in the front. im always wary of an easy fix lol.

It's not that the studs are longer, it's that they're going through the hub AND the brake rotor up front.
