I guess i'll have to try the Impreza studs, unless anyone else has any more info on the subject.

just a safety concern here....looking at the photo of the impreza stud, the smooth part of the shaft is much longer then the stud next to it...if a flat tire should occur and if you are useing the spare tire/steel wheel, a "spacer" may be needed to properly torque the lug nuts

Ya, it was. It was due to how low the suspension was hanging, that won't happen when its on the ground.

I used 60mm Nismo studs on my old RX, no mods were needed although they were LONG. I'd get the 50s if I was doing it again.
