I once again have to turn to the collective wisdom of this place, as I am facing something I have been over thinking perhaps for quite some time. Maybe someone has faced this before and might be willing to share the knowledge.
I am trying to do convert lug bolts to lug nuts on the 206.
1) First question: How are the studs going to be retained in the hub? Since I remember clearly when I did fit a lug bolt too long it went right through the treads in the hub and was hitting against brake caliper when trying to turn the wheel. If there is no end stop, how is stud conversion even possible since there is no way to retain the stud? But it must be possible since there are so many stud kits available everywhere...
2) second question: length-wise - what should it be? the 205 gti bolt is exactly 72mm and the studs are available either 60mm or 80mm.
3) tapers. are they the same across car world or each manufacturer specifies them individually down to degrees? and is there a difference between OEM peugeot wheel bolt taper and the aftermarket standard of 60 degrees?
All and any info is very much appreciated
