Got some star wheels
« on: April 10 2019, 10:28:02 AM »
So, I bought these star wheels a while back(OK like 2003 or so) and I want to put them on the car. A buddy offered up his 255/60-15 drag radials so I was gonna get em mounted and balanced. This leads to needing what I guess is some longer wheel studs. As you can see by the attached pic the studs don't extend past the face of the wheel as they need to per the nhra.
I know I should just buy the moser 8522 and keep going but I found these "less expensive" ones. About $15 less for the set. Yeah, i'm cheap.

Will the 13.1mm shank press in where the stock studs were? Looks like the stock is 12.73mm/0.501" and this unit is a bit larger(according to the rockauto spec).


The moser ones for comparison.

And I guess a bigger question becomes are either of these choices long enough to get the stud past the face of the wheel with the washer in place?

I don't think the ebay ones are long enough. I ran 3" studs in my T-type. Without a spacer I think 2.5" is going to be in the ballpark

.501 to .516 is not much but when your pushing it in a hole that’s a lot

I'll get the wheels out and measure the thickness from the back to the front. I think if the 2.5" would work, the 2.81 should too. Then the holes in the axle becomes the sticking point. I will see about a trip over to our local summit racing outlet and see about the Moser 2.5" 8522 units.

Next fun comes with the pushing the stockers out and pulling the new ones in. Stack of washers and an impact should work I guess. And a bfh to get them out.  Anyone have some pointers?

IMO, anybody anticipating short times in the 1.50's or quicker should not use 'spline shank style' wheel studs.
Some drill and tap their axle flanges for high grade Allen head bolts. The hardware is then cheap, the machine shop not so much. This makes sense with 9" stuff, where oem 31 spline axles are shortened/resplined, etc.
Somewhere around 11.0, I lose my interest in oem GM rears. There will always be those who cite exceptions.The re will always be reasons why they are (exceptions).
I do not care about the fronts. Nobody wants my opinions on c-clips.

Again, IMO.
