If I remember correctly, the stock wheel studs are 42mm long. The brake rotors will add about 8mm between hub and wheel. So ideally you'd want wheel studs at least 50mm long.

I think I got mine from Advanced auto. They were the only people that made them. I had to get them shipped from all the store in a tri county area.

Look for the reply by BV Motorsports. Listed in his parts list is the p/n for Napa for the wheel studs.

Hey, another thing, even though I pressed out the old studs on my 2000 Grand Am and pulled in these 54mm studs, I wonder if I should spot weld the studs. I'm wondering what the chance are that these studs will spin on rip the knurle up.... Anyone have input on these studs in the Fiero hub?

EXACTLY what he said. And any parts store can crossreference a Dorman number.

If you wanted extra insurance, could one spot weld or tack weld the studs into place?
