I had no issues with the original length studs on the front.  Might be a good idea to check the depth of the sleeve nuts to make sure they won't bottom out.
VERY good advice.... Saved a potentially catastrophic failure with my new Minilites many year ago.

I believe our local historic racers are required to open the end of their (normally closed) sleeve nuts so the scrutineers can asses the amount of thread engagement present.

Cheers, Ian

Hi Mark,

I sent you an email with a picture of the wheel and wheel cap. I will take a measurement of the center cap when I get back to the garage this afternoon.  

Hi Croc,

Thanks I'll do some measuring now that I have the wheels and lugs.

@croc7 Hi Jerry, Would you be able to send me a photo of your type of Revo Wheel Cap, perhaps even to my gmail?

And, having looked up this cap, I now see what looks to be 3 different diameters. Which dia are yours?

Thanks, and, Best regards, MSH

All Together Now.... Everybody......

I have the same wheels on my car, no change in stud length.

Hi, I'm sorry I don't know the answer, but have a request for a friend: Will you please post a photo of your brand new Revolution wheel center cap when you get them? Thanks! MSH

Hello,

Purchasing genuine 6x10 Revolution Wheels.  Can any one confirm if I will need longer wheel studs?   Wheels are ET05 offset.  I will be getting standard Revo sleeve lugs. 


I have Cooper S discs on front with standard 1.5" studs and 2.25" studs on rear (using 3/4 inch spacer in back).


1976 Austin Mini 1275 (originally 1000)

Thank you!

Seth
