Would you re-thread hub stud?

I have one stud on a hub where one of the threads is off just enough to not allow a nut to thread on it. I realized this when I was replacing the wheel lug nuts and the new nut would not go on without messing up it's own threads. The bolt that was originally on there goes on and off just fine.

So, without replacing the hub assembly, is it okay to re-thread the stud with a die so that a new bolt can be used?

This is what I have, a Gyros 92-91615 Metric Carbon Steel Hex Rethreading Die, 16mm x 1.50 Pitch.

I would rethread. Probably won't take much to clean it up and replacing is a pain.

Is it just a thread at the end that is keeping it from getti started or is the whole length messed up? Or threads closer to the mating surface

If it was just the first thread on the end I would rethread if you want, but anything that is where the nut will actually have tension on it when tightened up I would replace


Granted you could probably drive a truck with just two studs for a very long time, being how thick the studs are on these trucks, it's one of those things where if there's doubt, throw it out. Kinda like brake lines and such.

Replacing a stud is a 30-40 min job at most.

5 lugs/studs is just overkill.

I know a guy who knows a guy who made it home from a trip with just 2 or 3 per wheel

I would try to clean up the thread with a triangle file. If that works run it till you do the brakes and then install a new stud.

Thanks all. The threads start messing up in the middle. I will try to rethread and if I mess it up, I'll replace the stud. Good to know I can do that.
