I changed my Ford over to studs, but it is 7/16"-20 (fine) thread. I got a length of all-thread from McMaster-Carr and lug nuts from Napa. Is yours coarse or fine thread?

They're strong enough for cars and trucks. Is your tractor that much heavier and putting out that much more torque?

I've broken factory wheel studs on my Chevy van driving down the highway while towing a tent trailer. Used studs are already beat up and may have hidden stress cracks.

7/16-20 x 1-1/2" long bolts, used 12 mm washers behind the hubs. Both available at Lowes and/or Home "Cheapo." Grade 5 or grade 8 withstand 100,000 psi or more.

I wouldn't drill and install studs. Might "hurt" the hub accidentally.

7/16-20 chrome lug nuts. Got mine at Pep Boys although most every auto supply would have 'em.

Blue thread locker on the bolt threads only where they engage the cast hub.

My back and WH Stallions feel real good 'bout their new shoes!

Strongest way is with bolts. Thats what we did to all the pullers. Haven't broken any and the nice when using bolts is you can them in and out. We had to go longer for spacers when we went to 14 inch wide rims.
