    I am getting close to converting my wires to solid wheels. I thought I saw a post once that mentioned a specific spline (right word?) pattern for the part of the stud that inserts into the hub. I have to buy all new studs. is there something I need to look for?
    Thanks!

    There was a moroso part number on the forum archive for the correct thread pitch and size and knurled end that goes into the hub..

    Buy longer than stock length...if you want to run spacers on the rear or the wheels have a thick hub the factory length sometimes is marginal with how many turns of the thread the nuts can get.
