OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Press In Wheel Studs, 14mm X 1.855", Set of 5
Press In Wheel Studs, 14mm X 1.855", Set of 5


 
Press In Wheel Studs, 14mm X 1.855", Set of 5 are are the surest way to solve wheel mounting problems! These aircraft quality studs feature a head chamfer for brake shoe clearance, and a starting shoulder for nut alignment and thread protection. These are a little longer then needed, the Tech Inspectors at the track LOVE seeing a little extra thread on the studs! Drill the drum or hub to 37/64", then they press right in!

We strongly recommend that you "Spot Face" the brake shoe side of the drum, FLAT, using an end mill, to give the head of the stud a flat surface to seat against. This also provides more clearance from the stud head to the brake hardware. Tack welding the stud to prevent it's moving is also good insurance during the installation.

IMPORTANT! While the manufacturer advertises this stud as 1.855" long, the real USABLE LENGTH of the stud from the wheel side of the stud flat, to the end of the threads, is 1.500". We measure the length from collar that is against the drum to the end of the THREADS. Other companies measure the unthreaded portion of the stud, which is a useless measurement! These are "advertised" as a 1.855" Long Stud on the packaging, but in reality are 1.500".

To properly press in these studs simply drill out your lug holes to 37/64", then they press in! In a pinch you can pull them in with an impact gun, washers, and some grease!
