Most pickups require the wheel to bear directly on the spigot to achieve their ADR load rating. If the vehicle has FACTORY FITTED plastic bore locators it will also be fitted with high tensile load rated studs.

As Tom has said, hub-bearing wheels have no shear loading on their studs. Stud-bearing arrangements have much stronger studs because they're also taking load in shear...

Hiaces are a good example of non-load rated studs and load-bearing spigots. Most non-OEM mags fitted to Hiaces are illegal. Any Inspector with half an idea will defect bodgy fitments.

In NSW this mod is banned in VSI No6 Item 15.

Ask me how I know all this...
