I would like to hear from anyone who has put Panasport rims on their Europa. I would like to know what length and diameter wheel studs you used??? Thanks Dave

Suggest you contact Ray at RDent. He has all the specs on the Panasports and knows the right length studs. Panasports are excellent quality wheels.

I put them on my 73 Special in the late '70s or early '80s and used the stock studs. I believe I ordered the wheels as Triumph Spitfire fronts and GT6 rears

Stock studs will work, but I high recommend upgrading to 5/16" studs and replace those wimpy 3/8" fragile Triumph studs.

BTW, the center section of most Panasport wheels are about 1" to 1.25" thick. Panasports require a beveled lug nut (stock for a TC is a shouldered nut).

Cheers,
Kiyoshi

@khamai, do you mean 7/16" studs" - I would agree, having seen enough broken 3/8" wheel studs on Formula Fords and Formula B cars. 3/8's studs require only 35lbs/ft of torque and no more.

Dan
