    Just put a lift and a set of vision nemesis 17x9 -12 on my 17 TRD sport rwd. The stud length makes me a bit nervous. Anyone running this wheel setup? Any problems? Can the studs be changed to longer studs?

    Currently running Nittos with "ghetto" wheels
    Check to see if Gorilla brand offers ET lug nuts for your wheel. ET stands for extended threads

    You can get extended thread lug nuts that reach deeper in the hole for extra thread grabbing. OR you can swap out the taco studs for Camry(?) studs which are a fair bit longer.

    Dang, beat me to it.

    Have to be careful with the ET lug nuts. They will only work if the wheels that have holes large enough to accommodate the ET portion of the nut.
    Found out the hard way they wouldn't work on my Venomrex wheels.

    I ended up swapping studs.
