-2 nuts that match the thread of the stud. Lug nuts can be used

- Medium strength thread locker

- Wrench set to match the size of the nut

3. Remove lug nuts and wheels

4. Screw in the first nut as far down the stud as possible while leaving a few threads before the stud shoulder (unthreaded area)

5. Screw in the second nut behind the first

6. With the wrench back up the first nut against the second nut so that it is snug (But not too tight). This should be just enough that the first nut does not turn the second nut.

7. Use the wrench to move the first nut to loosen the stud.

8. Once the stud is removed, use the wrench to move the first nut forward to release the tension from the second nut.

9. Remove the nuts and continue to remaining studs

Proper care of bolts & Studs

Please note that lug bolts and studs/nuts are wearable items so proper care must be practiced to ensure their longevity and service life.

If you are racing, it is good practice to replace wheel bolts studs/nuts every season or every other season based on frequency of track events.

Washing the car: when finished, drive the car around the block to remove any excess or sitting water in the lug bolt holes.

Living in snowy climates: It is good practice to apply a small amount of anti seize onto the nuts to prevent seizure.
