Default 18's on ranger. Studs too short?

i am putting a set of eagle alloy 18x9 offset: 24 on my 2002 ford ranger xlt. I tried to fit one on the front and the studs dont even poke through the lug nut holes. i didnt try the back but i have heard the rear studs are longer than the front. Can anyone tell me what kind of studs i need for the front or if i need spacers. and also if the back studs are long enough or do they need replacing also. any info would help because my cheap wheels project has turned into a pain in my butt!!

yeah, if I had to guess I would say your issue is that the center hole is not big enough. Which if that is the case then you are out of luck

Or you can radius the center hole larger and many of us have done over the years
