lug studs
barely even a tiny ass lip to rest the wheel on as you try to get these things in

needing this extra shit when you can merely use lug studs/nuts as a wheel retention system

idontknow

Then you're probably doing it wrong or overthinking it. They're just bolts. If anything they make the wheel easier to install because you only have to align one center hole (the wheel on the hub) then just rotate the wheel so that the bolt holes line up and bolt it down. With a wheel that uses nuts instead of bolts, you have to align four or more holes, depending on how many holes per wheel and fish the studs through the holes then tighten the nuts.

Have you actually never taken a wheel off a car and are theorizing what it would be like? Because that's what your post sounds like

Nude_Bikergirl

There are situations where lug studs are an absolute bitch, though.

If you or some fuckhead at a shop crosses your threads and seizes your lug bolt, you are up shit creek. You can't exactly cut a lug bolt as easily as a lug nut, for one, and now your wheel hub is fucked. For a car that uses studs, you just press in a new stud.

I've seen many VW's and Audi's on the side of the road with sheared off wheels. Is it because they run studs instead of bolts?

hairygrape
hairygrape

I think bolts are stronger than studs at least for holding force if the torque specs are any indication. A Quattroporte only specs 75 ft lbs with bolts, a Model S which doesn't weigh too much more but has studs is 130 ft lbs. Also it looks like more than half the thread is confused. You either have a stud, which goes through the back of the axle and the wheel is held on by a nut, like American cars, or a bolt, which is threaded into the axle, Euro style.

TreeEater

all these yuro appologists

I worked in a garage for years and cursed anyone who brought in a VW or bmw product

These are the most pointless fucking wastes of aggravation i've ever encountered
but what if you break a stud, isn't it much easier to replace a bolt than pounding out a stud?
No, no it fucking isn't because now you have to replace a fucking hub since theres half a bolt stuck in it

Whoever designed these thought, instead of being able to replace a wheel on the side of the road at night while its raining, the person just says fuck it and abandons the car to buy a new piece of european junk

The last time I snapped a lug bolt, after removing the wheel the rest of the bolt came out by hand.

LuckyDusty
LuckyDusty

also, they aren't even stronger likesays

you know why you replace head BOLTS with STUDS on almost any performance engine?

Because a bolt is applying force in two ways, torsionally and compressionally. its being stretched in two different directions when torque is applied.
A stud removes one of these factors. when you tighten a nut down on a stud, you are applying one type of force instead of two

breaking studs is a pain in the ass but unless its a large ass diesel or an FCA product breaking a stud on a regular passenger car was a reasonably rare occurrence.

Dreamworx
Dreamworx

its being stretched in two different directions when torque is applied.

New flash: a lug stud has torsional force applied to it as well, its just that its splined into the hub.

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

I understand your point, but why are the torque values almost always much lower for lug bolts than lug nuts on otherwise similar cars, like in my example?

girlDog
girlDog

I'd rather have bolts over lugs and use this "extra shit" so when the inevitable mongoloid at a tire shop crossthreads your shit, you only have to replace a bolt instead of removing the entire hub assembly.

Skullbone

Why are you taking to your car to a cheapo tire shop. Also, does anyone actually think that cross threading or stripping lug nuts or bolts is a regular thing? It's not, even at shitty shops. Maybe if you put it in a 1/2 air impact across the shop, ran at a full sprint with the trigger pulled, and stabbed it into the hole. Doing things normally it's almost impossible to fuck it up. I've only seen damage at shops done from overtorqueing with impacts, especially on acorn nuts that are mostly hollow and like to mushroom out.

People at tire shops, retarded as they may be, take wheels on and off all day every day. No matter how stupid they are they have it figured out. If they regularly strip out lug studs, which would cause the dealership to eat a cost more than the profit they would make on 4 tires and an alignment, they wouldn't be there anymore. I have a feeling all the people in this thread that are worried about these things are people that somehow found a way to strip one out while in their own backyard. Even if it did happen at a shop who cares, they are eating it anyway.

If they strip and stretch the fuck out of your studs they'll wait till you come back then tell you that you need all your studs replaced. They'll find a way to make money no matter how bad they fuck up.

People get their shit cross threaded all the time. A lot of dealerships and quick lube places in North America fuck up the simplest tasks like oil changes, they'll strip the fuck out of the drain plug or double gasket the filter.

Tire monkey here. The easiest way to get wheels on is to sit your butt on the ground with the lower end of your knee in line with the body of the car, then pick the wheel up with your hands and legs and align the wheel with your hands while your legs support it.
