The Eibachs are adapters and bolt to the hub. Stock length studs work fine with the adapters.

The wheels I have are pvd not polished or chrome.

Re: WK2 20"s on WK

Thanks ! That is great news.

I was looking at the eibach 25mm spacers and I was wondering if you needed to put shorter wheel studs on... so the wheels could net against the spacer and not the top of the wheel studs ... figured you didn't do that !. I was thinking the stock studs were 37.5mm (1.5").

The jeeper looks great !

Re: WK2 20"s on WK

never mind my post where I thought the studs were 37.5mm... thought I measured it when I put on the spidertrax.

Just went out and it measures 25mm... maybe a gremlin lives in my garage that munched off the 12.5mm ??? or, my memory sux.

anyway, 25mm spacer is the smallest adapter type without putting shorter wheel studs on.

I did the mini lift (thread in this forum) have spidertrax 1.5" and 245/70/17 destination a/t... am in need of new tires, going to 255/70/17 ?? and 0.75" Bora... now I know I need new wheel studs. or, I go with 1.0" Eibach/Bora and don't touch the studs. The 245's "bulge" is outside the lip of the fenders...

The forum is great, but so many specific questions still require measurements. Hope this post helps somebody.

Can you post pics of your set up? I have a "mini lift" and the same size tires but would like to see how it looks with spacers. I'm thinking about going to 1" spacers when I find some Moab wheels at a good price.

Re: WK2 20"s on WK
