Wheel Studs

I've had a set of VTO Classic Eight 15" wheels for a while but haven't put them on waiting for the 14's to wear out. The car is down for the winter to do all the performance changes to the motor so as the tires are getting a little thread bare I'll be putting them on as well. The question is, for those of you who have done this, is the stock MGB wheel studs long enough or will I need to replace them?

I don't have VTOs, but mine do have cast aluminum centers. I still use the original studs.
