Callin people with 50mm studs.

Quick question: If I put 50mm extended studs all the way around will I still be able to run OEM Rays without spacers? Thanks, RT

The stock lugs are going to be the problem

You'll need open ended aftermarket lugs, And the last time I checked? They don't make those for the stock wheels rays.

someone can chime if things have change.

So I'd probably have to throw small spacers on the OEM Rays

And, you can PM me for a set of OEM lugs to hack the tops off

Yep, you need to machine the tops off the OEM lug nuts as there are no aftermarket lugnuts for the OEM wheels

Would weather getting to the studs through the opening be a problem?

It'll rust yes. Use thread lube and check and clean often if driven in snow states.

This is what I did. Put them in a vice and sawed the tops off with an electric pipe saw lol. Then I filed the ends to dull the edges.

That's what I figured. Sucks. Anyway around the rust besides cleaning them in the sub zero degree temperatures?
