    my stock wheel studs are too short for my alloy wheels, i only get 4 or 5 threads on. went to the auto parts store and they dont have the right knurl size. my truck has 7/16 20 1 1/4 4.80 knurl studs. they only have .460 or .560. will the .460 work? should i drill them out to accept the .560? is there some place on the web where i can get the right ones? i need 2" studs, stock is 1 1/4.

    Never had issues, although never had alloy wheels on my Chevy. 3/4 and 1 ton axles have super long studs though, so probably not an issue. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Check Summit or Jegs. The racecar guys often need longer studs.

    I had the same problem. I have Eagle 589 rims and the studs in the front werent long enough. I got Moroso #46220 studs (Jegs). I have them in, but still in question. A few wanted to twist when being installed. But so far they are holding up. I might go to NAPA and see if the ones someone mentioned might be better.
