    I picked up some late model steel wheels,there 15`s and well I got the rear on and assumed that if they worked/fitted well that the front would be the same-...wrong..there about 1/4 to much on the backspacing..only have problems in turns.Didnt even put a mile on them and took the car rite back home.I was wondering if the length of the stock wheel studs are long enough for the bolt on wheel spacers w/studs attached.W/ the stock wheels on there are only about a thread or two show through the lug nut(eggcorn style).Thanx

    Check out Gary at Rally America. com. They helped me put my 35 Ford wires on Chevy drums. Good Service. Iceman

    If only a thread or so show the studs are too short to use a spacer. You need a minimum of a couple threads showing to be safe.
