Installing new wheel studs

Looking for recommendations and costs for installing longer studs. I understand that you will need a press to get the old ones out and new ones in.

Thanks!

ARP wheel studs,they are pretty much the best,if you know someone that works at Lordco,you can get them cheap.

You don't need a press to get them out,take a hammer and hit them out.To install the new ones,tap them in as much as you can with a hammer,put the wheel on and tighten the lug nuts.

Just make sure you re-tighten the lug nuts after a few days of driving to make sure everything is tight or which ones needs to be tightened.

If your not confident in doing this,take it to a shop to have it done.

Thanks spyker for the info!

What about the studs you get from Ichiba as part of their V1 spacer kit?

Unfortunately I don't have any experience with Ichiba products.

I have always gone with what works and what I'm familiar with.As far as I know,ARP wheel studs are the strongest on the market.

What you can do as a alternative to using Ichiba hardware is,go with H&R spacers with ARP studs.

you can always use physics to your favour.. ie preheating your hub in an autoclave / oven or leave the studs out in the cold.

Thanks for the tips spyker. I will go check out Lordco and see what they offer with ARP wheel studs. I guess I need to be careful not to pick studs that are too long, or I will also have to change the lug nuts to open ended ones!

godwin, that tip will definitely help with getting the studs onto the hub, but I think the harder part is getting the stock studs off I will look for my big hammer!

do not use your wheel and nut to pull the studs through.
The theory is sound but if you make a mistake or the studs are the wrong ones you risk damaging your wheels.
I use a stack of heavy washers and a nut or preferably a press.

Phil I should have been more clear.I use steel or junk wheels for this type of application.
