Magnum 500 wheel spacers

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?

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.
