If you're planning on putting new aluminum wheels under an older vehicle, especially from the early 70's or older, wheel stud length can be an issue. These older cars usually have shorter wheel studs because they only came with thin steel wheels.For safety, the thread engagement of a wheel stud into the lug nut must be equal to at least the diameter of the stud. So, a 7/16-20 stud would need 7/16 in. engagement, or about 9 full turns of the lug nut; a 1/2-20 stud would need 1/2 in. engagement, or 10 full turns of a lug nut.If your wheel studs are too short, longer studs are always a solution. But, an easier option for wheels with conical seats would be to use ET Style lug nuts. These lug nuts have the same 60Ã‚Â° conical seat plus a small 0.300" long shank that will fit into most aftermarket wheels. This equates to about 6 additional full turns of thread engagement, which will usually allow for safe installation of the wheels.
