A shop can install new studs in a short time. The old studs can be pressed out or punched out, and new ones installed and drawn into a tight fit.

SOURCE: Broken lug stud on rear wheel.

It appears from the excellent picture that the stud has to be spun to line up the half moons at the rear of the stud.Use two thin nuts locked together so you can spin the remaining stud to line up with reliefs in back of the retainer.

My 91 Honda Accord EX wagon has a broken lug on front driver side. How do i fix it, & will it be ok in the meantime with the three lug nuts on tight?


It is not recommended to drive it like that. It's not too bad to replace but it depends on your level of mechanical skill, You need to remove the brake caliper and disc and then you can simply knock the remains of the broken stud out with a hammer and punch, To fit the new one insert the stud and then put a large nut over the thread, then fit the lug nut and tighten it to pull the stud into the hub, then simply remove the lug nut and put it all back together.

I had a flat tire and someone put the wrong size tire on my car which caused the srews for the lug nuts to break off now i cant put my tire on is the car a total now


No...absolutely not. However....it is more likely that the lugs were not tightened in the first place that caused the lugs to break. Wrong size tire will not do that. Furthermore...its a pretty simple fix. Jack up the wheel....pull off the caliper bracket and rotor will slide right off. Then you have a hub in front of you with all of the broken studs facing you. Take a hammer...smack out the studs from the hub. They are splined in there....one good hit can smack them out. Call your local NAPA or Auto Zone...give them your vehicle info and tell them you need all of the lug studs and lug nuts for on side of the vehicle. They should have them in stock. The rest is just reversing your removal procedure. Turn the wheel out...smack them in till the flat base of the stud is flush with the back of the hub. put rotor and caliper back on....and then the tire....tighten the lug nuts! You are good to go. Probably a $20 repair. Caliper bolts may be very tight....they use lock tight in the factory. You should get ahold of a good 1/2" breaker bar

What caused all 5 lug studs to break? How do I replace them?


The 24" wheel caused the problem. The car is designed to have 15" wheels on it. The added weight and stress from the monstrous tires is too much for the little studs.

Do I need to replace wheel studs or entire hub for front 1995 960


You Can Replace The Wheel Studs Call Napa And Find Out How Much They Are. Dont Go Dealer Cause They Are $20 A Piece And At Napa Like $4 Also You Can Try Autozone Or Kraigen But They Never Have The Ones I Need. Its Also Very Easy To Do Yourself If You Can Change The Brakes You Can Do This. You Can Have Them Pressed In At Any Tire Shop Usually $5.
Happy Fixing
