TR2/3/3A Installing Moss wheel spacers?

The usual reason for using the spacers is to use the wire wheel adapters without having to cut the studs. If that is what you are doing, then "no", you will not need longer studs. If you plan to use the spacers with lug-nut wheels, then you may need longer studs.

Karl if you haven’t done it yet study up on replacing the rear studs- it’s not that simple a task for TR3&4 cars as the studs are threaded.

Why do you want to run spacers with steel wheels ?

I don't think anyone makes studs longer than the stock steel wheel ones that will fit the rear hubs (for solid axle TR2-4A) unless you modify the hubs (drill & ream the holes for knurled studs). Moroso used to make some, but they were discontinued a long time ago.

I've got an older post saved that says ARP 100-7708 "Late Model GM/Corvette" will fit on the front without modifying the hub, but they take metric nuts.

Worth noting perhaps that the front spindles are a weak spot, and spacing the wheels outwards puts more stress on them. Not usually a problem on the street, but they have been known to break on the race track. If you are looking for better handling, I would definitely recommend the "uncle jack" uprated spindles and spacer kit.
