    i bought a set if mojave teflon on CL for a great price and i was ready to go get some NTG put on them but figured i would do a quick test fit first. I'm glad i did.
    it appears that the offset or backspacing or something is incorrect for my application. The bolt pattern is good but the wheel just barely fit on the studs. not even enough threads to get a lug nut started. any ideas?
    here is the AR site link if this helps:

    is the 0 offset what is killing me? if so how do you guys run these wheels?

    thanks

    16" right?

    What part # are the wheels?

    They should be part # 3981-6883 and NOT 3981-6838 which is a 6x5.5 bolt pattern but for GM trucks.

    Here's a link of part #'s: http://wheelandtirecombos.com/wheels/americanracing/mojave-teflon.htm

    i just looked on the inside of the wheel and it reads:
    1082 6081 AR-3981
    i'm thinking that these are incorrect. i know they did not come off a toyota. might have come off a chevy.

    Question - Otherwise, the wheel is clearing the center bore okay, meets the hub properly, and you can spin the wheel okay on the hub?

    I don't know if this will fix your problem but it did on my new Procomps. I still had 4-5 threads to start them but felt the studs were too short so I bought 41138ET lugs which is the last one on the page. Next page has 13/16" heads also but with a 3/4" head, you can use a regular socket but then you need to carry a breaker bar, extension, and 3/4" socket (I still chose this route). Wheels with deep set lugs and 13/16" head, you need a thinwall socket.

    Another option might be replacing your studs with longer ones.
