Cross Threaded Wheel Stud


New member
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.

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.

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.
