Has anyone needed to go up to longer studs to fit a set of slicks? I have a set of weld drag lights that I just picked up but they are way too thick for the stock studs. Anyone have any first had experience with this? Just looking for advice before I go mess something up. I already sourced the lugs that I would need (long weld ones).

With sst lug nuts they should work on the stock wheel studs.

Yes all you need are larger shank studs with OPEN ENDS! make sure they are open, for NHRA rules

Got mine from Summit for 20 bucks

Jegs or Summit have the open end ones, not all brands have open end, so check a different brand.

Keep in mind funkbomb has a MKIII. I'm assuming his wheel studs are shorter than the MKIV's.

Dave H, what's the difference in these "sst" open lug nuts and the stock open lug nuts? Will the stock ones make contact with the center cap or something? I'd like to replace them with alluminum ones if possible.

The SST's just have a very long shank, that protrudes into the wheel a long way. I've ran my welds on my mkiii also, I believe the wheel studs are about the same length. They fit fine with the sst lug nuts anyway. You don't actually need the open end lug nuts with the stock studs.
