Eather a bent wheel or a bad wheel bearing, Both of these could be your problem , Try swaping sides and see if does it on same side if so i would say wheel bearing out. If does on other side i would say it's a bad wheel. Good luck to you.

Unless someone is not doing the replacement correctly and I mean getting them in and tightning them correctly, You may have an issue with the wheel. Check and see if it is sloppy on the studs when you tighten the lugs. There must be too much play in the wheel for this to keep happening or they weren't installed correctly. try rotating the wheels and see if this issue moves to a different wheel. If it does'nt and is still an issue I would have the breaings and axles and suspinsion checked out for exxcesive play.

HOW REPLACE LUGS OF RF WHEEL 1998 HHONDA CRV


I think you mean the wheel studs? They are pressed in.You need to remove the wheel,brake caliper and rotor(or drum) and pound the stud out.Grease the new stud,and use HAND TOOLS with a lug nut and a washer(buy a plain open lug nut with one flat side to install it).I have tried using an impact gun to crank 'em in,but usually regret it-the threads strip or the stud breaks.Make sure to keep tightening until the head of the stud sits flush to the back of the flange.If you have difficulty tightening the stud because the axle keeps turning,have someone hold the brake pedal for you.

Sheared front lug


First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

How do i replace wheel stud on 88 corolla? front driver side


you will have to take the disc and caliper off too.
Then put the wheel nut back on, screw the nut until the top is level with the thread on the stud. A few good hits should do it, when you put the new one in put a few washers on the stud, then put the nut on and tighten up just so the stud is in right.
Here is a diagram will show you the stud.
i hope this helps!

Two Broken Wheel Studs on Front Driver's Side


It would be best to have the work carried out at a garage of your choice. A garage you have used before and trust to do a good job. Depending how long it takes to free the studs, will depend on the final price.
