My 97 Geo Metro has 12 x 37 mm 1.25, knurled diameter 12.25 mm.
I am looking for a source for longer wheel studs. The 37 mm length needs to be 50 mm.

Subaru Wrx studs are also 12x1.25, I use the ARP extra long with tapered nose, only problem with the WRX listing is they are sold in packs of five.

Keep in mind you dont have to stay with 12mmX1.25. Just find somthing 12mm or 1/2" with the same knurle or close as you could drill the hub bigger. Any good parts stores should have a spec book for studs. I know I have one just not sure where.

and don't go for cheap ones.. some are made from butter..

also, because they're are longer and if they stick out of nuts, clear them (dust, sand, rust,..) before unscrewing nuts..

The closest I can com to what you are looking for is same knurl as 97 metro stud and 43 mm long. I looked thru catalogs for about a hour to day. dorman part number for stock is 610-336 12x1.25 thread knurl is 12.45mm length is 37.5mm the longest one I could find is dorman part number 610-402 12x1.25mm thread knurl is 12.45mm and length is 43mm. hope this helps.
