Why do you want to go longer?

so i can safely add a spacer without sacrificing stud to nut ratio!

The Spacer usually has the studs in already. You bolt the spacer to the hub and then the wheel to the studs on the spacer. Like the picture.

Without telling you how to suck eggs...

I would measure the length of your current ones, head to the auto parts store of choice and take in a wheel nut. You can measure the thread on the different bolts there.

If you have some vernier calipers, you can measure directly off the stud.

i know exactly what thread pitch the wheel studs are, i need to know the KNURL diameter... which is the spline part of the stud.

OT. ive had a mechanic measure some of them at his work, and now know what im looking for. apparently they are the same as the GTi's knurl diameter...

Nice Products in Sydney carry them, I fitted a longer set to the front of my ZC32S so I could add 20mm slip on spacers. Not sure if they are that same as for the 31 though. Best to punch one out of the hub and measure it, or just buy a single stock one from a Suzuki dealer and measure that. They are only a few $ from memory.
