need help!!

Not to long ago posted about putting greese on whell nuts. I posted this because after I got mine off I wanted some way off keeping them from rusting on. Well, I finally got the wheel off. the nut was on there so good that I had only two options; torch it off or drill it off. I wanted to save the rime so I drilled it off. Obviously that hole in the rim is toast but I was going to use the rim from my spare. Here is my problem the stud that goes into the axle is now too short and the threads are too far gone to put a nut on there. Are the studs threaded into the axle or are they pressed in. If anybody has tryed to pull them out before any help or advice would be very much appreciated.Thanks

Re: need help!!

dont sweat it man, knock it thru ( it comes out the back) and go get another one, infact replace all of them that were overtightened. everyone sells wheel studs.

if its the rear you might have to remove the brake drum to get them out and back in, if its the front, the rotor might need to come off also.

And the studs are available at any parts store. They're easy to put back in too. Just tap them in with a ball peen.

If no has said it I will...DON'T use grease! Use Antiseze or even medium strength thread locker and tighten the lugs to the proper torque spec. Then recheck after a few miles.
