Re: Broken Hub bolts!!!
Yes, and studs are stronger than the bolts typically, unless you go to grade 8.
I used to have a problem with mine loosening, and after going to studs the problem went away. I repeatedly beat on my 5 bolt with 33" Swmapers, even ruined a rear axle, but never a problem with the front end.
