Spare tire mount, will this work?
i put a new set of rims on my jeep today and when i got around to the spare tire mount the studs coming off of the rear plate were not long enough (apparently the offset on the new rims is different) So i thought the easy fix was to knock out the wheel studs and just replace them with longer ones but i could not find a length that would work. Can i just use a grade 8 bolt and tack weld the back of it then use a flat washer and lock washer on the wheel side to tighten it down? I could get a bolt that would match my 4 way lug wrench so i could get it off in a pinch, but will that be strong enough and will it stay tight without backing off? By the way my tires are 35x12.50 if that makes a difference.
