    Anyone run into issues with the front wheel studs on their a body being too short to mount their wheels? I have a 1973 dart sport that I am installing a set of scott drake alloy wheels on and the wheel studs are about 3/4 inch too short. Thanks in advance.

    Yes. Barely long enough for the acorn style lug nut from the factory. Very annoying.

    Have you got a part number for the 3 inch wheel studs? I looked on the summit site but I did not see anything listed.

          Front wheels, or all around? Are the fronts disc or drum? 1/2 studs, or 7/16?
          If you want the fronts only, and if you want 1/2x3 for discs, try moroso 46180, .615 knurl.
          The rears are a different knurl size i think, and so are front drums, and i dont have a number for those, but im sure moroso, and probably arp, make them.
          With the three inch studs, you will likely need open end lugnuts.
          I think dorman makes some for a ford application that fit ,that are 3/8 to 1/2 longer than stock. Dimensions are on dormans website.
          I agree with above, Best answer is knock out one of the front and rear, measure the knurl, and go hunting.
