Turbinas on a '71
Everything that others have written is true - '71's, being the last of the 105 series, have shorter studs, with LH threads on the LH side. So yea, to mount Turbinas you will need to get longer studs from a later car.
I hate to start a "holy war", but why would you want to put turbinas on a 71? Those stock steel wheels with the little hubcaps are things of beauty. Their delicate look blends nicely with the small chrome bumpers on the early Kamm tailed cars. In my opinion, Turbinas are much less attractive. And, hard to clean. To me, they look very 1970's. Kind of like disco, they are something from that era that hasn't aged all that well.
If you must run aluminum wheels, go with Cromadora Daytonas.
OK, let the flames begin.
