Focus wheel stud diameter?

I've searched but can't find a definitive answer anywhere, so I'm asking it myself. What is the diameter of wheel studs for the Focus? I know that they're 12mm x 1.5, but there are also various diameters. From what I can see on CFM's website (the picture is really small), it looks like the part number on the ARP studs might be 100-7708. That would mean the studs are 0.509", is that correct?

Next question, I need to get extended studs for 15mm spacers. Stock lengths are 47mm(disc) and 42mm (drums), correct? That would mean that for 15mm spacers I would need 62mm and 57mm studs?

So, as a final check, for 15mm spacers I need 57mm and 62mm 12x1.5 wheel studs with a .509" diameter, correct?

So the ARP studs that CFM sells are long enough for 15mm spacers, they're not just OEM replacements?

12mm is the outside diameter of the thread. The AROUND studs are stronger than oem and are quite long so as mentioned you would need open lugs. Normally any wheel spacer kit you buy comes with the proper replacement wheel studs.
