    Extended lugs

    Anyone make extended lugs for our cars that aren't 1 inch longer? 18x12's are going to require a solid spacer to clear at my desired camber levels. ARP extended lugs are too long because i want to reuse my closed end MCgard lug nuts.

    Thanks Razor!! You're the breast!

    Anyone know if WTF racing is a dealer for any of these? I ordered 3mm spacers, but it turns out i'll have to go wider. As soon as they get here, i'll use them as a reference to determine exactly how much longer i'll need the studs to be.

    I had some Russian guy make titanium studs for me. I was looking for stock length titanium studs and couldn't find any off the shelf. Anyway this guy will make them any length/pitch you want with a myriad of different coatings. Let me know if you want his contact info.

    You can always take a longer stud and shorten it to whatever length you desire.

    Figured it out. I threaded my extended studs in from the rear of the hub to have a few threads of engagement, then hammered the back of the stud from behind the hub. It pushed the hub out nice and evenly as i hammered around the 4 studs i threaded in from behind.

    no lol i guess it was a bit confusing. The extended studs are longer than the bolts that secure the hub to the knuckle. So what i did is thread the extended studs into the hole where the hub bolts go on the backside of the knuckle (again, cause they're longer). This gives me a much better head to hit with a hammer. Then i worked my way around the 4 studs i threaded in, hammering from behind the hub.

    Weird tho, the drivers side hub was pretty stuck. The passenger side literally just fell off.
