  • Wheel stud material

    Anyone know what a good material is for a wheel stud? This is for a small trailer for a motorcycle fwiw.

        A friend needs a replacement and can't find one. I'm entertaining the idea of making one but it needs to pass the "this is a stupid idea" test, first

          I just bought one for a Dodge van after a tire store ruined one somehow. A universal from a parts store wasn't available It was over $.12.00 from Chrysler so I'm thinking they must be made from platinum.

            How about machining a stud from a grade 8 bolt. I suspect that common or garden variety studs on cars are not any stronger than a grade 8 bolt, With luck you might even get one end already threaded!

                Crack open a cold one and yell, "hey y'all, watch this" first.

                  Given the fact that rolled threads are 30-40% stronger than cut ones it's kinda of a bad idea right out the box.

                  If you have a local old time parts house nearby like a Napa or Car quest store your best bet is finding something close,same thread but bigger knurl and reaming the hub to fit.

                      Good gnuz is he just needed a shoulder turned down a bit. I've replaced a bizillion studs over the years but never had to make one and that's just one of the kinds of things I don't care to make, given the risks.
