Wheel Stud Spinning

Hey everyone.

Looking for some advice. Was taking off my snow tire rims and one of the front stud is spinning with the lug nut. I can probably zip wheel the nut off but does that mean the wheel hub hole is stripped? Do they sell oversized wheel studs on the hub end if the hole is deformed or do I need to replace the whole hub?

Thanks in advance for your help.

My guess is the stud is loose on the back, sounds like it just needs to be pressed back in.

Thanks for your reply. I am hoping it's only that. Does this happen often from your experience. Any easy way to press it back in so I can take the wheel off.

I know an easy way, it only works on certain cars though.

Do you drive a civic, what year?

Ive never had it happen, only fixed a couple of mine that were stripped. Depends on your wheels, if you dont care about them you can torque the hell out of the lugnut and hope it pulls the stud in far enough so you can loosen it and get the wheel off. If you care about your wheels take it to a shop and get it done, should only take 15 minutes to get it hammered back in correctly. Dont worry about driving with only four studs on there, ive driven with 3 on a 35" tire

Like Firebird said, torque the hell out of the lug nut, if you have open ended lugs that will help. I've heard of this happening before, so I wouldn't be too worried about needing oversized wheel studs or anything.

If you damage the wheel stud don't worry to much, they're easy to replace on early civics. You just need to grind down one corner of the head of stud, push it into the knuckle, and with a grade 8 nut and a few washers on the stud lay on it with an impact wrench, it'll pull itself in.

Maybe use a stack of washers or something instead of sacrificing a wheel, but the idea is to pull the wheel stud back into the hub

Just an update so others in my situation might find it useful in the future.

The suggestions of torquing it tighter would not work because the stud was still spinning even when pressure against the wheel was made against the stud. And not sure what was meant by the washer idea because how can you put the washers in when the nut won't come off?

Didn't want to ruin my wheel so was able to get a nut splitter to remove the lug nut. Shortened the remaining stud so it can be punched out. Re-install new stud bolt after grinding down part of the head so it clears the axle assembly.

Thanks for everyones help.

"Re-install new stud bolt after grinding down part of the head so it clears the axle assembly. "

If I'm comprehending what your typing correctly DO NOT GRIND THE HEAD OF THE STUD TO CLEAR THE AXLE.
The head is what keeps the stud from pulling through the hub assembly. They are a specific size for a reason. Unbolt the CV nut from the hub assembly and push the CV joint back abit to give the needed clearance for the stud.

You are right Phil but had everything off and up on jacks so just slightly notched the bolt head so it would clear without unbolting the CV nut....

This is a reason why you don't over torque your lug nuts. Lol
