Customer Question

What is differernt about the front wheel studs for a 1997 Lexus ls 400? What size are they and can another stud be interchanged in it's place if not then why? Lexus charges $200 ea. for one of these studs, so I am wondering what is different about them from other lexus studs.   Also I need the size of them diameter and length.

Your vehicle has 12 mm studs. They are press in from the rear of the hub. They are not entirely different from others, different manufacturers use different lenghts and thickness of wheel studs.
