RE: Wheel studs

NAPA has a catalog of brake parts that includes wheel bolts (studs) with 
all vital dimensions. All 1/2-20 wheel bolts are in one section so that 
you can compare a number of different studs. If you can take a look at 
that book it will allow you some flexibility that you won't find in a 
listing that is application based. Happy hunting.
