Magnum 500 wheel spacers

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired an 82 Avanti II and the previous owner had the front brakes upgraded but does not remember what he put on it or if it a turner kit. It has the Magnum 500 wheels that rub the calipers without a 1/4" spacer. With a spacer the amount of threads available for the lug nuts is too small to be safe, about 1/4". The lug studs are 1/2-50 1.625 long with a .650 knurl (Dorman 610-132) but I have been unable to find these any longer. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You can do some judicious filing of the caliper's high point where it's hitting the rim.  That costs nothing but some time.

Currie 95302 wheels stud  (1/2 X 20 X 3")  I had the same issue after going with alloy rims and used these.  They had to be shortened 1/4" to stay inside the lug nut but there are longer lug nuts available also.  It does give a better sense of "wheel" security.
