    Cross Threaded Wheel Stud

    Well, for the first time ever I damaged a wheel stud while replacing the rotors. Then I cross threaded a lug getting it back on. I got the lug off, but can I repair the stud threads? Wondering if I should replace the stud.

    You can try a thread chaser but you really should just replace the stud.

    A cross thread is a tight thread.

    If its the threads on the stud that need repaired, you can buy a split die on line and put it as close to the hub and line up the threads and back it off the stud. I had to do this a couple years ago when some yahoo screwed mine up with an air gun. Didnt have the lug nut started right and just rammed it on.

    Nothing worse than a stud rammed on. Good thing it wasn’t on your tranny.

    My helper got one of mine crossed a while back, but the nut took the worst of it. I got it off before the whole thing got bad and I was able to get another nut and work it on the stud to save it.


    I robbed one from the spare, and put the mis matched one on there.

    I do try to keep a couple of spare studs in my bag for really bad days.

    Can probably clean up the threads with a die, but I would personally just replace the stud.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
