    Moving 16" wheels up front - spacer and stud install

    The 16" 225/45/16 wheel and tire on the rear will fit the front axel though I 5 mm wheel spacer and longer studs are needed to fit the wheel over the Alcon fron calipers. The spacer I used is a (88-01) Acura Integra 4X100 HUB 56.1 WIDTH 5MM and the stud http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EIB-905050051/ The hub size is 56.1mm. There are H&R spacers as well that will work .

    The kit comes with longer studs but I preferred to use an even longer one with tapered ends

    the studs were easy to change. with the wheel removed on the front, the existing stud will back out pretty easily with a rubber mallet. I then placed the new stud using the lug nut to seat it. I put a large nut (larger than the thread) on to the threaded side and then used a lug nut to tighten down on that. It pulls the stud into place in the hub without having to pound or press it is. Then back the lug and nut off and its ready to go.



    Existing studs too short

    Re: Moving 16" wheels up front - spacer and stud install

    I'm looking for a source to find steel lug nuts that have 1/2 inch of taper. My 949racing.com wheels have a very deep pocket and the lugs I'm using are 6061 T-6 aluminum, and I don't trust them. Any ideas?? I have looked around, but have only found short taper lugs, 1/2 inch would work fine.

    I dont have a specific recommendation. You might ask 949racing if they have one

    Summit has several
