Default wheel stud help

Sorry if this belongs somewhere else.

I bought a car recently and it has a s60 with what looks like stock size wheel studs. I've noticed they are bent and one actually was sheared off the other day. I called a shop and they thought the wheels weren't the right pattern but they are 17" tt2s with no issues up front or passenger side that I know of. I'm looking to upgrade to arp studs on all four now because I eventually would like to get a drag wheel setup and not deal with that when the time comes.

What size and type will I need and will they work for both front and back? I would also like to upgrade to a better type of lug nut. I'm guessing a shank type?

I've searched but I'd rather know exactly what I need so I can order them asap. Thanks in advance!

I have an S60 also. I bought it new and bent the wheel studs as well. Had them replaced and the replacement studs have bent as well. Not sure if you have abs and traction but if you do you will have to pull the axles.

My car is currently down do to a missed gear over rev. Will be keeping an eye on this thread.

Hey 01 bad ***** did your wheels have any play with your s60? I just recently installed an sup on my car with champion speed series wheels and there is considerable play when the rims are bolted up. I called champion and they said they have some of the tightest tolerances among rim companies and its most likely the studs are too skinny. I'm running 5/8 studs as well

I hadn't noticed any play. When I get the studs fixed this time I'm going put in some 5/8 studs as well.

Will the 5/8 work with tt2s I currently have? I've seen ppl use the 2.5 inch arp studs also. I really need to get something ordered so I can get this thing back on the road

I'm not sure if 5/8 will work with my rims or not. I may get then drilled out to fit then balanced or replace them all together.
