Weld Prostars 15x4 fitment

Hi, I got 15x4 prostars, I'm not sure if I need longer wheel studs, or if I need a different lug nut style. Any help is appreciated.

I was thinking these wheel studs, http://www.summitracing.com/parts/arp-100-7708

Also I am using the stock open ended acorn lug nuts from the stock 16in trans am wheels. I'm thinking these might not be the best.

You are required to run the lugs that go through the wheel. At least by an NHRA track that checks.
Shank style.

Longer wheel studs would be ideal as well. I went with the long ARP ones on Slowass.

I am sure they do. Doesn't mean I would spend money on them.

I am not sure these are the right thread pattern or length, but this is the style/manufacturer I used with my ProStars.

I found these Weld Racing 601-1422 Weld Racing Lug Nuts I looked up prostars need the 1.310 shank length, and I like the open ended so it doesn't matter with longer studs.

Is it a PITA to change the front wheel studs? I had a garage do my rear wheel studs which was a great idea because they were so long, they had to pull the axles out lol.

I didn't think either (front/back) were that bad to change out. Little oil for the new ones when pulling them through, otherwise fairly easy. Use an old lugnut to get the current studs hammered out.

I just found the best video ever, it's funny cause he's like give them a few taps, then he just slams the hammer, misses the stud a few times, and just beats the shit out of it hahahaha Ls1/Lt1 Camaro Trans Am (Rear Stud Install) - YouTube

I'm going to do 2.5in wheel studs up front, I hope that's enough, they are pennies compared to buying the 3.25in studs. Thanks Mr Luos, I'm ready to order my stuff.

2.5 wheel studs with 10/16 (2 5/16) spacers do not work. I need 1 inch spacers and 3.25 wheel studs. This sucks.

Up front needs at least a 5/8" hub spacer. That is what I used for the 15x3.5 wheels.

EDIT:
Hence, the issue. You said 15x4.

Seems I need the 3.25in wheel studs and probably 1in spacers since 5/8 isn't quite enough but VERY VERY close, the wheel wants to turn, sort of lol, I'll post in the for sale section after I'm done being pissed off. I'm pissed off because I ordered 3 sets of 2.5in wheel studs because I messed up 2 wheel studs pulling them thru cause I'm stupid. If no one wants them, I'll make them fit next month, but for now I'm just angry.

Ok screw it I'm getting the 3.5 wheel studs, where do I find a 3/4 spacer that works? I can only seem to find weird BMW hubcentric spacers. 2 5/16 spacers seem to rub slightly so I want to go with 3/4 or 20mm.

ok so the winning combination was 3.5in wheel studs and 3/4in spacers.

Thank God this battle is now over. It took changing the wheel studs 2 times and ordering 3 different spacers lol

Next summer will be the battle to get rear prostars to fit, which I hear is a lot worse.

Yeah, the rears require hours of grinding.....
Not much fun. More so if 15x10.

Sorry I wasn't around to help....in Finland with limited access. haha
