Wheel stud length + Spacer question

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I have just upgraded the suspension on my mk1 cavalier and I have noticed the rear wheels (15x7 minilites) will need spacing out slightly, around 10mm to sit flush with the fronts. Can anyone tell me the length of the standard wheel studs as I am going to need extended ones to do this, to make sure the wheel nuts are secured safely, unless there is an alternative suggestion?

Cheers,

Ryan

I believe there are 2 different lengths depending on the year. It will also depend on the minilites too. Alloys are inherently different when it comes to rebates of studs, so I would measure what thread you have with the minilites on (no spacer) and start there.

Iirc the std studs are ~35mm in length, but you can buy up to 65mm easy enough

Thanks for the reply, it’s a 1976 so one of the very first ones,

Yeah will be the shorter as it would have originally used the steel wheels that are thinner. Still drop a ruler on them and check length, but I think you will need to change them.

Got some extended studs for mine from these guys

Very helpful and had them in stock. Think they were a couple of quid each.
