Wheel studs.

Postby Mike Attew » Wed Jun 26, 2019 3:29 pm

I have Minilight wheels on and found the rims are rubbing on the back part of my suspension on full lock. They are 5.5J x ET25 which was all I could get.
I can solve it with spacers but then I only have 3 turns on the wheel nuts. Is it possible to get longer studs? I believe they are 7/16" UNF

I have some of these and will now try them although the Viva ones have 28 splines and the others have 31 splines. I checked a spare hub I have and after pressing the stud out the hub has splines in which I suppose the stud cut.

I thought the ford ones were a different thread, wouldn't classic mini ones suit better as they are imperial thread?

I think Classic Mini are 3/8 unf, the Escort/Anglia ones I have are 7/16 unf same as Viva.

I bought a load of spares for Viva's and Chevette's from a bloke who worked at a Vauxhall garage and amongst these was a bag of different chrome wheel nuts for Vauxhall's

A better picture, 2 x sets. Not perfect but usable.
