Default Lug/Stud Help!

I bought some new wheels for my blazer but I cant run them because I can only get 5 turns on the lug nuts until the wheel is torqued. Is the only solution longer studs? If so how bad are they to change on a 2wd? thanks!

2 wheel drive you can basically just beat them in with a hammer then you have to redraw them in. which can be kind of a pain cause if you use a lug nut to pull them in you screw the lug nut in. they actually sell a special tool with like a bearing on it for lug nut installation.

google around see if they even sell longer studs. 5 turns MAY be enough but that is kinda sketchy
