Default Wheel stud replacement

What's the process with replacing a rear wheel stud? I have a stripped one thanks to the stupid fucks that installed my old wheels/tires and I need to replace it ASAP so I can drive my truck.

Looks like the same thing just be careful when you pop out the old one. once you get it out it looks pretty easy to get the new one in.

I like that C clamp idea especially if you have never done it before looks like you can control it better that way.

the way we always do them is to drive the old stud out with a hammer, put the new one in, and pull it tight with a lug nut. Make sure you purchase two lug nuts, because if you do it this way you will ruin the first one. Also, keep adding washers until you pull it all the way flush

pulling a stud through with a nut is the WRONG WAY, you could stretch the threads, hammering it through is the correct way

You have to pull it through with a nut some. How else are you going to hammer it in the whole way? I don't see a way without pulling the axle out. I've never had a problem so I'll continue to do it my way.

This is how I planned to do it.

You're only going to stretch the threads if you tighten it down *******-tight and don't pay attention at all. I've watched a bunch of videos and every video shows a guy either tightening it in or using a C clamp. Even the tire shop who fucked mine up said to do it the way SPless is talking about.

Not to be a jerk but usually your counterpoints are much more valid than this.

I believe that wheel studs are a high enough grade metal that they can withstand the higher load of being pulled through with a nut. You'll be able to judge for yourself whether your using too much force to keep it moving. But yeah you can see whether that method will pull 'em all the way through if you do your drums first.

A great trick not mentioned is putting the new stud in the freezer for several hours which substantially shrinks it several thousandths, greatly lowering the forces involved in reseating it. You won't hear this from full time mechanics because a commercial garage won't have a freezer handy nor the wait time and will prefer brute force with large impact guns. But for home diy jobs, a large impacts are not oft found but a freezer and a few hours are always on hand.
