If the wheel nuts still show a bit of thread clear of the nut they are long enough. Or, to put it another way, is there at least 6 mm of thread (not stud, because the end tapers) sticking out beyond the head of the nut now?
BUT. I wouldn't do it. You will be introducing a bending stress into the studs. They were not originally designed for this and could break
cheers for the f/b on this and hi to all.i think its going to really good here!.first i,ll check out the stud length as sgould says.and as for cd carlsson the polegatian,just doing the back to increase the track width (better handling??)and not the front as this will badly affect steering,as wheel offset will be changed
ps mines a carlsson.be good to chinwag
Have to agree with Mark - widening the track will not necessarily improve your handling - could even make it worse and as Stanley says flexing, etc will come in. Also the load on wheel bearings increses so they may wear out more quickly. If the suspension is generally 'tired' through mileage, replacing some of the components is more likely to give a better result. The other route though obviously more expensive, is the wheel and tyre combination change.
