    I have a 08 5lug and want/need to switch out the stock wheel studs for some that are 8mm or 5/16" longer. I just need to know what the specs are of the stock ones (knurl length, knurl dia., thread length). I know they are 12x1.5. TIA for any input.

    No Problem. I didn't like the amount of thread left after installing my new wheels which was about a 1/4". I feel very comfortable with them now being about 1/2" longer than before makeing them about 3/4". And you don't have to use a special tool to install them. I used a hammer to remove the old studs and I used 5 heavy duty washers and a lug nut to install the new ones. You put the new stud in and place the washers over it and then screw on the lug nut. Then I used my impact gun to run the lug nut tight and it pulled each one up tight with out a problem.
