I have Moroso wheel studs on the rear of my car. This is a 9" Ford rear with stock axles. My problem is the wheel studs nurled surface that fits into the axle sticks all the way out of the brake drum when I put it on. Now when I put the wheels and lug nuts on. My lug nuts hit the nurled surface and don't torque down against the wheel. Leaving the wheel loose.
I had a set of lug nuts turned down on the ends so I could tighten the lugs down. This is just a band aid fix. Also the lugs don't go all the way through the Weld wheels. They probably lack somewhere between 1/4" to 1/2". I want to know what the problem is. I have a set of new lugs that reach all the way through the rim but they run into the nurled surface. What the problem?

It sounds like you need new wheel studs that have a shorter knurled surface.

Find a good parts store and ask to look at their Dorman wheel stud catalog. They have a wide variety of studs.
