should be able to just put the tire on and draw the studs through the hub when you put the lug nuts on


Hey Daniel, thats' bad advice. What hapened when dud have to take wheel (s) off in case of flat tire. It would take Hercules power to do that. Find exact tread pitch and retap it nice and slowly. Clean treads and dont try to go all the way in one shot. Go half turn, back of ,clean it (hole) and or blow it with compresed air. Patientce here is key issue. Good luck and no beer before job is done. Cheers


its not bad advice Steva its how its done less im misunderstanding his problem, and retap what hes trying to get his new wheel hub stud back through the hub all I told him to do would just pull it into the hub its not gonna make it hard to take the wheel off,, you don't thread the stud into the hub its pressed in, Steva you sir don't know what the hell your talking about, much like you didn't know what you were talking about with the O2 sensors but I did didn't I lmao


heres some video aid for ya steva and for nbillin as well,, can also be don't by just putting the rim on the hub and drawing them in with the lugs as I originally stated

notice the ribs at the back end of the studs their NOT threads soooo nothing to strip out and has nothing to do with removing the lugs down the road pal


notice the ribs at the back end of the studs their NOT threads, they work/act like tongue and grooves, soooo nothing to strip out and has nothing to do with removing the lugs down the road pal but you would want to make sure the tongue is in the groove before you started drawing them in though, any crap that might be in the groove will be pushed out by the tongues


I didnt have video to see it, ok Daniel. I have proposition to make to you how about if we have friendly chat with beer maybe somwhere.?
