Wheel Spacers and Wheel Studs info

i went through a heck of a time getting my new wheels put on but they are finally on and hopefully this will help anyone looking to put on Wheels safely and go for a flush look and/or anyone w/a Big Brake Kit

1. the easiest way would be something like H&R Wheel adapter with built in studs that range from 15mm to 25mm:


2. if your wheels are designed in such a way that requires 15mm or less...swapping out OEM Wheels Studs and using a Wheel Spacer under 12mm should result in a combination that will achieve the "flush" look and not stick out too much

Wheel Spacers: pretty much you can get them in any mm size except 11mm for some reason? i ended up buying 9mm, 10mm, and 12mm to find the best fit for my particular Wheel

what happens with a Wheel spacer though is the OEM Wheels studs will not at all or barely tighten a few turns of any style Lug Nuts which is highly unsafe

if you have a Big Brake Kit, you probably already have longer wheel studs and/or wheel spacers...i did in order to safely tighten my lug nuts for my old wheels

tip: universal style wheel spacers are considered more unsafe than the 5 bolt pattern only ones (both pictured)

my new Wheels required new Wheel Studs new Wheel Spacers...hopefully this will help anyone else if you ever need to swap them out for something longer.

info is from Dorman:

Honda Accord OEM Wheels studs are:

head diameter: 17.78 mm
knurl diameter: 12.345 mm
shoulder length: .354 in.
thread diameter: M12
thread length (in): 22.225 mm
thread pitch: 1.5
thread size: M12-1.50
underhead length: 37.34mm

Dorman Wheel Lug Stud in pdf:

out of the fore mentioned, for Accord OEM Dorman part #: 610-269, the most important info is:

Thread Size: M12-1.50

Underhead Length: 1.417" (in .pdf and different from site listed at 37.34mm)

Style: Serrated Stud

Knurl Diameter: .481

Shoulder Length: .354

the combination that worked best for my Wheels was a 12mm Wheel spacer with Dorman part #:610-323

Thread Size: M12-1.50

Underhead Length: 2.126"

Style: Serrated Stud

Knurl Diameter: .504

Shoulder Length: .315

the other Dorman Part #'s that might be a good fit are:
