Wheel stud length + Spacer question


Recommended Posts


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?

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
