Longer studs with spacers

I put 30mm spacers on and the original studs should be a bit longer to get a few more threads engaged...how should I go about replacing with longer studs? Do they come out of the hubs out do I need new hubs? Where does one buy them...thanks...

Yes you can press out the old studs and press in new ones. There should be threads here on it, and all the vendors should sell longer studs.

Google the part number. Plenty of choice.

Be sure to post some photos of the Defender after you install the spacers. I'm thinking about doing the same.

Here is a picture of my Defender after using the cheap eBay 30mm spacers. I'll reinstall only after sourcing better quality nuts. Thinking the crap Chinese steel is too soft, but YMMV. At least use locktite as it is not like you can go back in to retorque the nuts with the wheel on.
BTW - the NAS factory studs are plenty long to clear the spacer nuts. The factory lug nuts on the spacer studs is fine as well.

All five spacer nuts backed off and remained captive between the spacer and rim. Perhaps I didn't torque them. Don't know. The word of caution here is there was ZERO indication the wheel was about to fall off until a slight steering wheel wobble during a right hander a mile earlier that went away after the curve. The wobble was faint but noticeable. At first thought low air pressure and the KM2 sidewall ribs lugs were in play. Then the wheel fell off... instantly. Just kept it straight and pulled off to the side of the road. The rotor left a nice scar on the asphalt. Zero damage to the D besides this unique flat spot on the rotor. I got lucky.
