Wheel Studs for 69 Blazer

I picked up a set of the new Wheel Vintiques stock type steelies that are 15" X 8" with a 4 1/4: backset. Took one down to the body shop where the tub/chassis is and test fitted it on the front. It hits the tie rod end. I came home and got out a set of 1/4" wheel spacers. Went back over and tried them out with no rub on the tie rod end. Will need some studs that are about 3/8 " longer. Anyone know the exact specs of the original K5 studs so I can soures some new ones? Thanks

Re: Wheel Studs for 69 Blazer

First, don't use that wheel spacer as they are known to break studs. Here in Ontario, they are illegal to use. Second, if you're going through the hassle of replacing studs, scrap the 7/16 original ones and install 1/2-20 studs especially if you plan on using larger tires.
The one that dies with the most tools, wins !
