I bolded step 23 for a reason. Enjoy your fancy studs.

I would recommend not using your lug nuts to pull the studs through. Use either a M12x1.25 Class 10.9 nut, or other lug nuts. Wouldnt want to damage a lug nut and have t buy another set.

Great write up and worked exactly how you said. The diameter of the abs sensor plug was 17.7 and the head of the arp stud is 18.6 so wasn’t much to shave off. fit right through the abs hole and was installed in no time! level of Difficulty 6 and time wasted including grinding 2 hours.

UPDATE: for future generations

50mm(2 inch) studs

and maybe even little longer ones don't require grinding.
You need to take off the parking brake assembly and there is enough space to slide them in from the back(not trough the abs sensor hole)

Takes much less time than grinding and it's overall safer/better method.

Look for Ichiba studs. Dirt cheap and proven quality. They have few different sizes too.

Im running 12mm spacers with 2 inch studs.

You can very safely run 15mm with those
