Your studs are probably fine. Your lugs fit inside those little holes thats why you need tuner lugs with a key like that.

I'm confused on why you think your studs are too short...

As Barry said, get the Gorilla tuner lugs. I run them on my setup.

i thought the lugs were too short b/c i was using the factory stuff not realizing the wheels had their own and the guy just forgot to give the to me
