    I just saw this a few days ago, but I can't seem to find it. I'm looking for the proper specs on replacement studs needed when using a 1/2" wheel spacer. I'd like to pick them up on the way home and I haven't pulled any of the old ones off yet to go by.

    Thanks

    Maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't you just add 1/2" to the stock size? Any auto-parts store should have them. I think they're M12-1.5 thread, and then just get them 1/2" (~13mm) longer than they say you need...

    Your not missing anything - I just hate going into the parts store without a good idea of what I need. Trusting the store's computer is sort of like pulling the handle on a slot machine when it comes to Cruiser parts. :D

    Edit - Forgot to add that it's your fault I need spacers. After seeing your Cruiser and how it sits, I pulled the trigger on a nice set of barely used 33x12.5s with 8" wheels. Unfortunately, they were on an older drum brake Cruiser and the backspacing is too deep :D

    Ha ha! Bring it by when it's done. I want to see it with its new shoes!
