Re: FS: 2012 I-MIEV SE $5000

My mistake. I replied with the VIN you requested and then didn't hear back so I thought you weren't interested. Looking back, I should have followed up more. I'd been too busy with the move recently and didn't pay enough attention. If you're still interested, the car should still be at the CarMax in...

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

Melloyello you mentioned in in the other thread something about cutting the studs down to 60mm to fit them on the rear because of the backing plate, yet the studs I have are 50mm. I'm a bit confused, do they need to be cut down more or not? The first picture on that post shows the oem stud vs the a...

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

Yes, I ordered 2 sets, but that would only leave me with 4 extra studs if I can still find them. It does look like they are not longer sold on amazon, but I found them here on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50mm-LONG-EXTENDED-WHEEL-STUDS-FOR-MITSUBISHI-LANCER-Year-2002-UP-K-14-3-m12x1-5-/172837762579...

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

If you don't cut the studs, there might be clearance issues with installing them in the rear. I think maybe the back of those drum brakes get in the way. You might have to remove the rear wheel hubs somehow to install the studs. You'll also need to use those open ended lug nuts. Just revisiting thi...

Re: Annual Fees to Compensate for Gas Taxes in Some States

$200/yr here in GA. It's higher than it really should be to compensate for gas tax revenue.

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

Here's a photo of the mini wheels with 8mm spacers and the longer studs before they were cut. https://c7.staticflickr.com/4/3925/15113826510_a2273d9046_z.jpg I haven't really tried the open-ended lug nuts with the mini wheels after cutting the studs, but I'd guess they wouldn't really stick out much...

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

Only the rears need to be cut for clearance issues. I cut them all to the same length so I can use the OEM lug nuts, which are closed-ended. I tried looking for shorter studs, all i could find were these and the oem ones.
