Wheel studs and nuts for 12-bolt axles.
My car had been damaged by the prior owner. He had to replace rear passenger side wheel and axle. I have after market rear disc brake and the stud that got installed seems too short, the thread are not longer than the nut. I want to replace studs and nut. I see a lot a of slightly different size for knurl diameter, ex: .487in, .472in, etc. Which one do I need if a have just a regular 12-bolt axle and what is the regular length for these studs so I can get longer ones.
I see a lot of different types of nut too. I seem to have regular 60 degree nut but it left weird wear marks on my wheels so I'm not sure I've got the right one for my rally wheels. Just looking at the nuts page on rockauto.com for my car makes my head spin. So much different types, acorn, bulge, flanged, mag with washer.....
What do I need?
