wheel nut/stud size
« on: February 12, 2024, 01:14:44 PM »
hi, trying to order some wheel spacers for my 1984 Sedan. I'm 99.9% sure studs/nuts are 1/2" x 20 thread. Customwheeladapters.com is telling me that according to their specs, the size is 12 x 1.5  (metric) can anyone confirm/deny. Also, they list the hub diameter as 67.1mm, while my measurement is 71.5mm. again, can anyone confirm/deny.  thanks,  gz

Yes, the studs are 1/2" x 20.  I've purchased several sets off eBay, and bought the ones that fit a Jeep from that era.  Good luck!

What Vangremlin said.  Sounds like your vendor is getting things confused with the later Renault Eagles or MOPAR Eagles.   

Probably bean counters messing with the catalogs again - hey; if its an Eagle, gotta be the same; right??
