trim 5mm (the un threaded part) off your studs and the mag wheel nuts will fit perfectly

i had a set of wheels that were tight on the hub so i ran some sandpaper over the hub bit on the wheel and they slid on. it didn't take much effort, but it had a cast spot which stopped it from going on.

well the way you were describing it i thought the nuts were the problem.
i recommend removing the rims and give em a light sand, cause if they were a real tight fit, they might be a pain to remove later on down the track.
maybe even smear some grease onto it just incase.

Stomper I had the fairmont rims on my EF. You need to either have the nuts drilled and thread tapped ($2.50ea thyey are a shaft and tapered nut) or put EA-ED studs on the car. Dont cut the the studs as it can weaken them. PM me if you need help with them.
