    so i got my 3 inch procomp lift installed saturday. but i realized that the wheels are only being held onto the hubs by about 5 or mabye 6 threads. no where close to enough in my opinion.... so ive been looking for longer studs, i dont want to just get longer lugs, ive heard that that is not the right approach to my problem. i have a 2010 tacoma prerunner sr5. i got some atx thug 17-8.5s with duratracs on them, but it looks like where the holes for the lugs are bored out the back piece is extremely thick. so i guess what im saying is i need new lugs. any idea where to get them?

    i found a site eonlinehttp://www.hunt4steve.com/05TacoExtLn.html that the guy found some from an 02 or an 03 matrix that should fit. i was looking for advice. idk if they will fit or not...the part # is dorman 610-643

    or at napa it is # 641-4208

    im noto sure if they will fit.... i want to know if they will fit before i go spend $100 on studs that wont fit...


    anyone? ideas?

    Any good parts shop can tell you what studs are for your truck, with that info, you can go through their catalog and find some that are slightly longer. Tacomas do seem to have barely long enoughfront studs, so this is a common problem.

    When I snapped one off due to discount tire cross threading one I just went to pep boys and got another. They did have some longer ones of the same size.

    And the customer service there is terrible. You may want to call ahead just to make sure.

    You will likely have to order them, not too many people stock that many of any size wheel stud.

    Can you get longer reaching lug nuts?
    Studs are a lot of work to swap.

    Those wheel studs work fine. I'm running them on my truck with no issues.

    Also, get the deep Gorilla lug nuts that extend into the wheel.

    The lengthened Dorman PN # 610-463 listed in the Hunt4Steve.com link mentioned in the first post.

    RockAuto.com sells 'em for $1.66 each. :thumbsup:
