Wheel Stud Replacement

Recommended Posts

I just read in one of the monthly magazines that if I was going to put alloy wheels on I would need to replace the wheel studs (see pic attached). As I was planning to do this and have the alloys which are un-yet fitted as my project is not complete at the moment.

Do I really have to do this?

My landy is a 85 dbl cab, with old style axles, will they still work with the hub spacers?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated,

Wheel nuts need changing if you're going from steelies to alloys or vice versa, can't see a reason to change the studs unless you really can't get new nuts to fit the existing studs... which is about as likely as Armenia invading the UK next week :D

I think it's the length of the studs to get enough thread into the nut to stop the wheel falling off. :o

Thanks Guys,

That's good news and I did get nuts to go with the wheels!

I have enough on my plate with the rebuild, I didn't really want to have to start going down that road as well!
