Default Wheel stud size

What size are the wheels studs? I know they are 12m 1.25 but what about the splinned part. I broke one and they have them at Auto Zone but I need to know the third size. Is it 41.5m? It looks close but I want to be positive. They list them like 12mX1.25X41.4 so is that last part correct?
Thanks,
Rob

when i broke 10 (yes, TEN!!!) i went all over my area, autozone, kragen, pepboys. they all said the same thing. they all gave me some BS, about how they dont have the part on "the computer." basically they told me they didnt have anything that would fit the car (which i found very odd)
so i bite a bullet and bought 10 from the dealer @ 2.63 a pop.

i hope someone drops some knowledge on this thread lol, i get the feeling i might break another stud in the immidiate future

They gave me that crap also but I just asked to see the parts bin. Behind the counter they have bins full of different studs but I want to verify to get the right one. They were cheap also like $1.35. Before people say I'm just trying to save a buck the dealer is only open when I work and a 1/2 hour drive away Auto Zone is around the corner.

read my thread in the tire/wheel forum

ARP and skunk2 both make longer and stronger studs.

ARP makes them in 1.850" M12x1.5 (stock length) and 2.850" length. they fit, but you'll need new lugnuts (M12x1.5 thread)

skunk2 is similar, but I don't know what length they are.

edit, ARP studs don't fit... the knurl is way too small

Subaru studs are the same knurling as the Nissan NISMO studs, and the ONLY place I can find extended studs (60mm+) are in the UK... T_T

NISMO makes 2 versions of their studs. you'll need to get the version that has a 14.3mm knurl NOT the 13mm knurl.
They're the ones for the S14 240SX 1995-1998 - front axle.

they cost a pretty penny at $60 for 10.... $6/ pc. so they BETTER be friggin strong as GroupN parts or something.

I'm still sourcing out cheaper longer studs though.
