PostSubject: Wheel Studs   Thu Nov 12, 2009 7:44 pm

Anyone happen to know the standard length of a SC wheel stud and if its the same diameter as normal toyota studs. ( or got one to hand to measure)

I've put spacers on my wheels for a little more track, took a chance on a 13mm extended stud from ebay that fits MR2, etc etc... but before i buy a set i want to check it fits... but its filthy weather out there to start messing about removing wheels etc in the dark and rain...

( and its too tall for the garage Sad )

Hi Entwistlea

I am in the exact same predicament as you were, I need to fit spacers to my wheels and have found this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300296575559&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

What is your handeling like since adding the spacers, what size were they and what offset are your wheels?

yep, they look like the ones i bought. I had 100mm fitted either side and can;t say i've noticed any difference. Wheel are 16's with standard offset, so will be slightly out now...

Only thing was my bearings started to grumble a few miles after, so needed replacing,this could have been completely unrelaed or the slightly extra offset may have put them under a bit of extra pressure, meaning an old bearing that was on the way out finally went...

AussieQ
Try these guys in Sydney for wheel studs.
http://www.niceproducts.com.au/
Spacers are banned in NSW. Personally i wouldn't fit them as they cause too much strain on the studs and bearings.

Hmmmm.... I don't like the sound of that, you guys have made me think twice about modding my wheels to fit. I reckon I'll sell them and keep on looking for a set of 15's that fit with no mods. It's just so bloody difficult to find any ! Thanks for the advice gents

Holy Thread Resurrection Very Happy

Today I popped off my wheel centre caps to replace the decorative screws on them, and noticed that each rear wheel bolt only grips about 6mm on thread as the studs are not long enough.

At least they are around 90NM of torque so at least that seems in the right ballpark.

The previous owner seems to have been casual on detail - earlier in the week I adjusted the exhaust pipe to sit properly without bumping the chassis or melting the mudflap LOL.

So I'm not comfortable with this stud length and will replace them before it gets off the ramp again, but I was wondering about removal. I've seen some videos of people whacking them with a hammer - but that shock goes straight into the hub bearings which are perfectly fine and I'd like them to stay that way Very Happy

All ideas for gentle 2WD rear stud extraction welcomed!

With drum brakes, you remove the drum and hit the studs with a hammer, so they will pop out the hub. That should be okay. If you are afraid of damaging the driveshaft (which is the hub) then put a block of wood between the hub and the metal axle cover.
But it shouldn't be an issue, just wack it out of the hub.

I'm not sure though why you write that they are not long enough.

Yes, drums on the back.
The alloys are thicker than the original steel wheels so the studs need to be longer for a secure fit in the nuts.

I'll nip it up on the jack in the next few days and measure them so I can order some new ones, they seem easy to get as Toyota used the same size everywhere.

Yeah but I wouldn't fit them from an MR2 or something. It probably works but I would rather take longer ones from a Hilux or something. To make sure it is up to the weight.

They seem to be a Toyota standard size, eBay sells them in all lengths.
Usually studs get snapped from over tightening, I would expect them all to be a high tensile steel. It is nice to have 5 rather than 4 though Wink

The 2WD only has 850kg on the back axle, the RAV4 is 800kg IIRC.

You are probably right, it is very likely the same steel. So with same diameter it should be fine.

Although the 2WD only has 850kg, that is without weight.
Comparing it to my 4WD, the grey plate says the rear axle can be loaded up to 1750kg
(the van is almost 2 ton and it is allowed to weigh 3 ton with luggage)
The 4WD's have the 6 bolt pattern by the way.
