Lots of options, not sure which is right though. I did all this for mine, but don't remember what I bought sorry!

There on just the tyre place think longer studs would be better to secure them!
I think I heard somewhere once that it's recommended to have 7turns on the nut or something? If that's correct and you have that many turns I'd leave it as is?
I think :headscratch: the accepted rule is that a nut should screw on at least one diameter.

What would we think standard + 13mm or 25mm currently at 4 turns and need possible another few to be safe. No idea what one turn constitutes as!
