longer wheel studs

Post by LRBkd » Wed May 27, 2015 6:34 pm

In my search for longer wheel studs to accommodate the addition of some spacers for new wheels it has become apparent that lots of people want them for scimitars, MG's, Jaguars etc but none, so far at least, seem to exist in the original 1/2 UNF format. Ideally something around 66mm (2 5/8 in old speak) I've found a company that does custom runs of studs, question is, is it worth getting a batch made up? would anyone else be interested? or do I just convert to metric?
also does anyone know the spline diameter on the originals? its probably on the forum somewhere but I'm no Colombo..

Try Moss Europe, they do longer studs for the TR6.

I fitted them with spacers to my TR so the Revolution alloys would clear the ARB drop links on full lock.

Hi Think you find TR6 spline/ knurl is too small for Scimitar hub (13.2 mm)

Hi

I would be interested in a set of longer 1/2" unf wheel studs, about 10mm - 12 mm longer (3/8" - 1/2").

Speedshack say that they're NLA but if you drill the hub to accept a 15.62mm spline they can get 3" studs in 1/2" UNF (at a price)?

Hello Jim,

I don't know the comparative cost of Metric versus Imperial studs but surely when you add the cost of a set of Metric nuts the Imperial route should be cheaper?

Not so, unless somebody has N.O.S. Metric items are made by the million, Imperial are not, except perhaps A.F

Hi Jim
I got the 14.8 mm from measuring one I had removed so guess original measurement would have been 0.58 inch?

I suspect it might be 9/16" and the 14.8mm measure man is the outside of the splines but you measure by the size of the drilled hole (or vice versa)?

I noticed speedshack mixed their units too :-)

1/2 UNF studs should be dirt cheap across the pond. I imported some ARP ones once and it was fairly painless as the value was below the dreaded Duty/vat thresholds

My boundless enthusiasm is unfortunately not matched by either time or budget.

K&Ns at discounted prices.

Alloy radiators coming soon.

finally got a quote back for having them made, unit cost of £21!!!!! (sprays beer all over table, falls off stool, laughs hysterically...) I think not, time to search through ARP's range!!
I just want my pretty new wheels on..
