Question

My 67 camaro came with the extra long wheel studs (commonly used in drag racing) from the previous owner. The 17" wheels I have use the acorn/tapered style lug nuts.

Is there such a thing as open ended acorn lug nuts? High quality chrome type, not the ones used with rallys under center caps.

Or do I have to change out all 20 wheel studs to the factory length?

Jegs or Summit have a whole list of styles , lenghts , and sizes. Also you could try your local wheel/tire dealer.

Thanks Doug, I looked at summit and jegs but they only have open ended nuts in the mag/shank style (sst, s/s and pro mag)All the acorn/tapered style are closed ends. Ray

Cool

I screwed my McGard's or whoever on my new Bullitt's with longer 1/2" studbolts that are on my car AND the sucker's popped the center Acorn "cap" outta three of them with hardly a dimple!!

Supprised the heck outta me b/c I thought I was going to have to cut the tops off to work right!!

You might try and see if the "cap" won't pop out??

Pdq67 I also have the stock short acorns. The center was either drilled out or the stud was forced through the cap(came that way from previous owner). I was just looking to see if I could get open ended ones/or extra long ones to replace mines.

Doug G Thanks for the numbers.
