Re: Wheel studs: better or worse than lug bolts? (vwsr2cool)

yeah i kinda thought of that aspect of it... I'm assuming since they serve the same basic purpose, that one isn't really much more advantageous over another.

Re: Wheel studs: better or worse than lug bolts? (jaydub)

Everywhere I have taken my car to get the wheels changed, rotated, or during inspection, they commented that the studs would be nicer. Personally, I am leaning more and more to agreeing with them the more I work on these cars and have to install and uninstall the wheels.

If you use studs make sure they have a good coating of antiseize on them....otherwise you could have problems later if you ever need to get them out for say a spare tire......
Just make sure you check the studs occasionally to be sure they are tight....they tend to loosen.
Good luck.
