Wheel stud length

Hello, I have a 2007 Monaco "Cayman" that I would like to change the steel wheels for Aluminum wheels! Do I need to be concerned with the wheel studs being long enough??. Also do they usually use all four aluminum wheels on the back or just the outside wheels? thanks for any help.....Jim

I can not speak for all MH's but there should be no reason to change out the studs, unless they are bad to begin with. On our 2009 Diplomat the outside wheels are aluminum and the inside ones are steel. We had the same set up on the 2003 Endeavor that we used to have. About the only issue you might have is when/if you rotate the tires. Then they will have to be removed from the wheels, which will cost more. Most of us do not put enough miles on our MH's to rotate them before they 'age out'.

Usually the inside rear duels are not aluminum but some models may use them for some unknown reason !

Pull the chrome caps off and see how much stud is sticking out past the nut. Aluminum wheels are twice as thick as steel.
