Question

In the future I am going to get some of the Budnik Anvil 5 rims. Does this mean i will have to change wheel studs or can I use the original studs? 17x7 4.5"bs on the front and 17x8 4.75"bs on the rear. I am in the process of converting to disc brakes so it would be nice to know about the stud size while I have the rotors off.

Are you referring to the 5 x 4.75" stud SPACING?
You will need to get rims that have that same stud spacing, or can at least ACCEPT a 5x4.75 stud spacing.

If you're speaking of stud diameter, that doesn't need to be changed. If you're speaking of stud length, the fronts are fine in every Camaro I've had, but the rears were too short for most aftermarket wheels. The stock length rear studs would only get about 3 threads before being tight which is VERY dangerous. I bought some longer ones at the local auto parts store by measuring my stock ones and matching some with the same knurl size but 1/4 to 1/2" longer.

You can get studs from ARP that are 3" long and cut them to the desired length. I cut 0.6" off each stud on all four corners. I have 17 x 8 and 17 x 9.5" but they are TTII's. I would measure how many turns to lock with the new rims. My tire guy told me 7 full or 14 half turns of the wheel nut. Mine have about 12 or 13 full turns. Better safe than sorry.
