2017 drw cali wheels

Got my new tires and wheels in while I was out of town. So my wife brought them to me. Had to take a digrinder and get rid of the paint on the inside inner and take sand paper to the hubs. I'm thinking the studs might be too short but we will find out tomorrow. Not real happy with the fit and ease of install after $4700. But the wheels are made in china.

The picture above is before we took the diegrinder to the wheel. After the paint was removed from the hub the inner wheel fit on, I've only got I'm guessing 3/8" of threads sticking out past the outers. I'm going to drive it today and then re tighten them. I think I might have to get 1/2" longer studs to be 100% safe

Please be safe and get new studs, 3/8" is really not enough and the studs need to stretch to properly hold the wheel.

i understand this completely that's why I posted this thread, I bought studs from napa this morning and am ordering wheel seals from ford today also. You can't knock the studs out without pulling the axle shaft and breaks off. Here are some more photos.

after a major pain in the *** the ford dealer finally got the wheel seals right, so after paying parts and labor it was right at 425 to have the rear 16 studs changed out. I now have a full 1 inch of threads.
