I never thought to ask about the length of studs needed to mount the new wheels when I bought them online. And as it turns out, they need to be a lot longer than stock. Crap. Good thing I haven't bought tires yet.
The stock wheel studs are 13/16 of an inch long. I am guessing that I will have to replace them with studs that are at least 1 1/2 inches long. I have never taken the drums off of this truck and I have no idea how hard it is going to be to swap out all 24 studs. But I bet it will be a pain in the butt. Plus, the drum hub is a lot smaller than the wheel center. I don't even know now if these will work at all. Double crap.
And I want to make sure that I will still be able to use the original style wheels and hubcaps later on, too. If not, I might see if I can find a buyer for these and keep looking for a decent set of original equipment wheels.
Anybody need a good deal on 6 lug slot wheels? I can hook you up.
