Hey everyone I have a couple questions, my current wheel setup is 16x8 et20. I have a new setup right now that is 17x9 et35. But the wheels are 5x114.3 so I bought some adapters from FRSport that are 15mm, so that would bring my offset for my new setup at 20. My only problem is my studs extend more then the adapter so my wheel won't sit flush with the adapter. I don't want to cut my stock studs but was hoping there were shorter studs made already. I think our stock length is 40mm long so I'm not sure what to do. I can't find anything on shorter studs anywhere on google. Any input is appreciated I need to know what to do.( I don't want to redrill my wheels either)
Thanks in advance everyone!!

When you run adapters that are ahorter then your OEM wheel studs you either have to cut them out get shorter ones. So that your wheel sits flush with the adapter. It's all over the google and youtube. But I did want to cut them I wanted to put on shorter ones but cannot find any info on it.

This happens every time you have adapters or spacers that are longer then your stock studs. My adapters already have new studs pushed in them if that helps you understand.

our chassis isn't to popular try searching under...
Toyota Supra
Toyota Celcia
Scion TC
Scion FR-S

also.. try search under HONDA (they always have a better aftermarket line up)

try to avoid cutting them

Okay you must not understand what I am looking for. I don't need to look under any specific car if I know the thread pitch and knurl of our stock ones, I'm just trying to find them shorter and cannot find anything which is why I posted this up. M12x1.5 is not difficult to find in 40mm like our stock ones but it's hard to find it any shorter like 25-30mm in length. Anyways thanks for trying to help..

Perhaps go to Dorman website and look through their catalog for what your looking for or your nearest parts house, and look at their Dorman catalog. I ran into almost the same issue (needed longer wheel studs) on my 4Runner. I found Landcruiser wheel studs that would work for me.

Yeah my problem is just the opposite of yours, it's easy for me to find extend studs that range from 45mm to 60mm but nothing shorter then 40mm which I think is stock on the 9thgencorolla. I was looking through the ARP site and couldn't find any shorter, so if ARP doesn't make them shorter I don't think any other company would.

Look behind the rims if there are pockets that will be enough to clear the studs...i am running 15mm spacers with no isues

They don't have the pockets in the back of the wheels like most do.

A lot of the vw guys just cut em. As long as you make straight cut by hand or with a low temp disc on a grinder it won't overheat. The only thing to worry about when cutting them is that they don't overheat and damage the integrity of the metal.

Right, I've done my research as far as cutting but I hoped someone would know of a company that made shorter studs so I didn't have to cut them. Thanks for all the input guys much appreciated
