Re: Anyone done this

Aside from the above^,there is also the question of the correct torques.
You would have 2 separate torques or moving components acting thru the one hole.

The nut on the stud (assuming its the correct taper for the wheel) should act as normal,but what happens on the stud to the original bolt hole interface.
Is there a danger of thread stripping or at least never being able to use the original bolts again cos the original thread starting point gets damaged by the stud ?

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
