just picked up some 19" gt1's and it looks like the rear lugs are too long.
What size are the stock lugs and what size do I need in order to clear the parking brake?

19x9.5 in rears

don't use stock lugs on aftermarket wheels. The seats are different. for the rear you need at least 25mm length of the tread exposed when you put the lug through the hole. length varies by wheels due to differen hub thickness.

so what I have found from research the stock lugs are 39mm shank and they are ball type.
would I be safe with a 35mm shank?
Do I stay with a ball type bolt?
