Wheel studs/lug nuts question

<font face="complex" size="2">
After years of abuse with the impact wrench, my lugnuts and wheel studs are stripped or damaged in some way, so it's time to replace them.

I've attached a pic of 3 wheel studs, the longest one is from the front, and the 2 shorter ones are from either the rear axle or rear drum. Should I be getting studs with the splines or should i get ones with the straight part on the head? I pulled these off some spare axles/drums/discs, so I'm not sure what years there from.

One more thing, today I went to napa and they want over $2.00 (US$1.30) canadian for 1 wheel stud, and $2.09 (US$1.37) for 1 lug nut. Is this price about right, or does it seem high?



Thanks

Anton

Re: Wheel studs/lug nuts question

I've never had a stud off a samurai but it looks like 2 of those have a flat area on the head which keeps them from turning againt a shoulder while the other needs the splines. I figure you'll have to buy them for which ever is required. Ask on the board a lot of people probably have several laying around and lug nuts from wheel changes.

Les Schwab tires couldn't even get a lug nut for my rig. I was going to go through Napa to replace mine as the threads are gettin pretty rough. None of my studs seem to have those splines sticking out.

Re: Wheel studs/lug nuts question

I have axles from an 86 out and it is using the studs with the flats on it for both. You need the splined ones when the design doesn't have a place for the flat to seat on and keep from spinning.

Re: Wheel studs/lug nuts question

Napa in America wanted $3.00 US for one acorn lug nut. I needed 20 so that would have been $60.00 for all of them. I bought my lug nuts from Kragen which only charged $1.50 US for one acorn lug nut. The regular lug nut style was a bit cheaper at Kragen. I think it was about four regular nuts for about $4.49 US.

I bought new studs at my local Suzuki dealer about a year ago, and they were about $1 each. Didn't buy any lug nuts.
