The left/right thread is not the issue really; it's that 1750s have short studs like 1600s. This is because they used thin stamped wheels with no "sombrero", whereas 2000s have the sombrero hub cap and corresponding longer stud and nut, but mainly because Turbinas, being cast, are a lot thicker than steel wheels. You really need the longer 2000 wheel stud to have enough nut threads biting on the stud. People put Turbinas on the shorter studs, but you get only 3-4 threads holding it on. I wouldn't do it.
