PCD adapter. General wheel stud, hub stud hole size question

Standard, alternative, alloys too
I am planning on making my own PCD adapters. Could someone tell me what size hole should be drilled to suit a wheel stud. The wheel stud is 12x1.5 and the end in the hub is knurled in line with the axis of the stud. I am yet to receive the wheel studs so do not know the OD of the knurled section of the stud, but is there a general rule with regard to the size of hole the stud goes into?

Cheers

Absolutely CRAZY idea - use the correct PCD wheels. This is a Safety Critical area....your project is utter madness. What defence will you have if something breaks and you smash into a line of school children?? Your Insurance co will dis-own you for starters!

If you're using Ford studs, I believe that the splined section is 14mm diameter. The trick is to drill a 14mm hole, and heat the adaptor slightly, so the stud will fit, then when the adaptor cools and contracts, the stud is an interference fit.
