    Hi Just been checking the front brakes on my Roadster, have the disc setup has a 10 mm spacer to clear the disc etc, one of the nuts and stud has stripped the thread due to not being long enough, alloy wheels, any ideas anyone? thanks, Ray.

    I would be very cautious of spacers on front wheels.
    The standard ones are hub centric, plain spacers won’t be as good, possibly the reason for your problem.

    Marina or Triumph based? Are you talking wheel studs here or the bolts that hold the caliper? Marina wheel studs are Triumph and not the same as Mini ones.

    Try Rimmer Bros.

    Hi no the wheel studs which hold the wheel on one nut has stripped because not enough bolt due to 10mm spacer, but need the spacer because the tyre is too close to steering end.thanks.

    I will give Darren Groves the credit for this info not tried it myself but quite a few Triumph owners have done this upgrade.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    There is always the option of fitting Dolomite 7/16” extended wheel studs from Rimmer.
    My experience of M12 wheel studs is that their heads are not recessed to fit in the hubs.

    Unless you are an engineer, it’s far better to use parts that were designed for the specific application.
