Napa and custom wheel shops have lots of them if youre willing to change hole diameter or thread type.

Go to the parts store and see what they can come up with that will fit into the hubs? There surely is some vehicle with studs that are similar but longer.

No need.

We have found 60MM studs...that are COMMON....as common as....as any other SUBARU and Nissan out there.

reason i ask before i post answer...to see if anyone has done the proper research.

Think...these 'old cars' are not so 'old'...........

Yeah I'd like to know what the studs are for. I'm going to need longer studs so I can have an offset plate made for the hubs. I wanna go 1/2" offset to make sure my tires dont rub with the lift

Hmmm, then I suppose one of us with some free time needs to go to the junkyard with a Subaru lugnut and stud in hand and start checkingJapanese cars, starting with Subaru, then Nissan, and on out from there.

Bumping this to try and get some expert advise from the 80's folks...

I need longer studs for my front FF-1 hubs. The stud turns out to be the SAME as the 80's studs, here is a pic:

[URL]http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a383/Kostamojen/FF-1%20Project/hubboltcomparo1.jpg[/URL]

The length of the Impreza studs would actually work OK, I only need 1-1.5cm longer studs to work with my spacers.

However I know about the NISMO studs (which are 50mm or 60mm) and ARP studs, but all of those appear to be geared for Impreza/Legacy style studs.

Has anyone used Impreza style studs on their 80's Brats/Loyales/etc. even though their stock stud looks like my FF-1 stud?

I did and the acorn lug nut ended up having a hole thru the end but otherwise it worked ok. This was with a stock alloy wheel 13" thru a brake drum on the rear of my 84 Brat.

Still a little peeved at WJM for this thread. I see his point but honestly a factory Subaru part works fine if you need longer studs.

I have a feeling a stamped steel wheel might not fair as well as it would sit further down on the stud.

What do you mean? You mean the open-ended lugnuts?
