George,
There have been some prior postings by Red Regal about this subject. Hes found some basic drop ins from the local auto parts store.He wrote:

"FOR ONLY $1.00 A PIECE, YOU CAN BUY 2" LONG LUG STUDS AT YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE. HAS THE CORRECT KNURL DIAMETER AND THE SAME METRIC THREADS AS STOCK.....M12-1.50R HERE'S A PART # FOR "WHEEL TITE" BRAND........28501

IN MOST CASES, 2" IS LONG ENOUGH. STOCKERS ARE 1 1/2" FROM END TO END. HOW MUCH DO THESE OTHER AFTERMARKET LUGS COST? I GUESS THERE MAY BE SOME USE FOR THEM IF YOU'RE RUNNING 9s.

If that doesnt work try this:"GM part number 22551491 for 3 inch metric lug studs." :cool:
 
What is the correct knurl size? Does anyone know if the 1/2" size on the chevy caprice has the same knurl size. im running 1/2" studs in the rear and wanted to put 1/2" studs on my LS-1 front brake conversion. hopefully a bolt in like a caprice has.
 
Here you go, NAPA Part # BK6411581 Just went to there website and there $1.99 each. Might be cheaper at your local NAPA store.

Hey thanks all.

Picked them up at NAPA. I paid $1.77 each for them. Keep in mind that's

Anyone know who makes nice (SS or ??) open lug nuts for use with long wheel studs?
