Hey guys, So I decided to take off my tires today to look at the brakes, and didn't realize that the studs are reversed on the driver's side of the car. We managed to punch them out, and went to get replacements, but the replacements don't fit, and all the websites come up with the same studs that don't fit when I search by make/model. Used the number from the parts book and they gave me the same ones. Wondering what type they might be and where i could get some?
I read somewhere (sorry, but I just can’t recall where) about using 21/8" x 7/16" x 20 wheel studs in lieu of the original lug bolts. I’ve been considering doing this, as putting wheels that don’t have the alignment pin hole in it, and the center register hole isn’t the same(it’s larger) as the center hub shoulder, on the car which no longer has the alignment pins on any of the hubs while using lug bolts vs lug studs is a real pain in the posterior. And, don’t even get me started about the left-hand threads . . . I understand the principle involved, but it just makes that pain in the posterior that much more acute!!! My only concern with proceeding with this is how to secure the lugs to prevent them from turning with the lug nut when cinching them tight, or worse yet – when trying to remove the lug nut, which would be yet another even more acute major pain in the posterior. Anyway, has anyone done this, and what method was utilized to secure the studs to prevent them from turning? Thank You in advance to responders for their input. Thx.
