    Hey guys, I need longer wheel studs due to the disc brake conversion with the rotor taking up thread space.

    What is the factory 10 bolt stud length and what is a good length to go with for a street car?

    Shall I go with press in or screw in studs and is what is a good brand to go with?


    Thanks

    Kieth at Custom Works sells an extended lug nut for C5 disk brake conversions, don't know if that will address your issue though. Scroll about half way down on this page.

    If you do replace wheel studs, ARP makes about the best, and press in should work fine on a street car.

    Cool Thank you! I will take a look, I was leaning towards either ARP or Moser studs.

    Just checked out the longer studs Keith has and I am liking that idea alot! I didn't even think of that, thank you very much!
