I would also like to change mine with the recent aftermarket wheel install. Any tips and sources for 14mm x 1.5 and length of studs appreciated

Google "m14x1.5 wheel studs" and it will belch forth a host of options. You might want to purchase an original and make a few measurements to be sure the knurl is the correct size. http://www.pinzgauer.com/showdetails.ph ... 101343241/

Looking for information on longer wheel studs. I have aftermarket aluminum wheels that don't engage enough threads. Also do you have to remove axle to replace the studs or the be pressed off while on the vehicle?
Can anyone provide measurement for the length of stock stud?
Thanks in advance. Thanks

Chris - I have a bunch of wheel studs, check when you come over this weekend. If they are what you are looking for you are welcome to them. I think there's enough there for all of your wheels. I also have a set of TD tail lights you are welcome to if you want them, I switched to round LED.

I spent a lot of time trying to locate longer studs found some dodge 3/4 ton that would probably work. The dodge one are a few thounds smaller in the serrated area so I was a little concerned. Then I found some Gorilla extended lug nuts. Problem using these was the clearance of the wheel holes is .609 and I needed .625 for the entended nut to go in. I called Trail Ready Wheels this morning at 0730 and actually got someone to answer. He said drilling out wheel to .625 5/8 inch was not uncommon. After doing that I did test fit with chrome nuts. Hopefully that solves the tearing of the lug nut threads due to lack of engagement.

I was about to spring for a set of 7 Ford Transit wheels for my 712 then decided to buy
just one to make sure there are no issues. Hmmm, the Wheel studs just seem
a bit too short for comfort. Yes, the lugs are open and cone not ball, so you can see
the lack of thread engagement just doesn't seem sufficient. Has anyone with Transit
wheels noticed this?

Made some measurements. And a couple of PIX's attached.

The bolt length that extends for capture for Stock Pinz wheels is
approximately 18mm. However, the effective length for the Transit
wheel and cone seat is only 13mm.

Pictures say it all:
Stock captures ~10 1/2 threads on a M14x1.5mm.
Transit wheel ~ 7 1/2 threads on the M14x1.5mm.

Based on how these Transit wheels are stamped, this actually adds up.
At 7 1/2 threads that's < 12mm, you really want at least the bolt
diameter 14mm, captured in thread engagement.

So my thinking now on these Transit wheels is that it's marginal. One
would ideally want longer wheel studs by at least 5mm or more. Or
one would be hoping that M14 is overkill and 11mm to 12mm of thread
engagement is more than enough -- hmmm, glad I only bought one of
these wheels and not 7 :wink:
