I know this has been beaten to death but here is what i did to convert to wheel studs using advice from a previous post.but, for anyone that needs pictures. here they are. Used Dorman studs. personally i think the length of these are a tiny tiny bit short. they work on my smoothie wheels with the original wheel backspace but on an original P20 wheel the studs dont quite come up to the end of the lug nut. i still need to grind down the rivets. Drilled out the holes with a 1/2 drill bit. I advise that you be very careful doing it this way. i set the drum a piece of wood and i planted my feet on the drum to secure it. i then positioned the handle part of the drill between my calves. This kept the drill from swinging out and almost ripping my hand off at the wrist when the drill cut into the steel. it happened a few times before i figured out the right position. If you choose to use a drill press, i highly advise a strong clamp to hold the drum down. with the way this thing spun around on the end of the drill and the way the drill spun away from me i can imagine that it would be quite a show unsecured on a drill press. inserted these secured them with two hardened washers and a grade 8 nut. wrenched them down by hand with a 3/4 inch socket , 3 pound hammer and a lot of patience. i suppose a strong impact wrench would have made the job easier but mine isn't that strong. Ground off the rivets and the locater pin so that the multi lug wheels i have would sit flush against the drum. on the original wheels the locator pin and the rivets pop out of the holes where the hubcap clips are mounted. i shaved them off with a grinding wheel and cut the locator pin off with a cutting wheel on a dremel, then ground it off. here is what it looks like on the original wheels with the rivets shaved. all the studs mounted and the rivets cut off. this is the finished job with the wheel mounted. (this was the back wheel. most other pics were front)
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?
