how impossible is it to install extended wheel studs with no press?

I've put in an OEM replacement. but i'm considering getting wheel spacers now and I wont do it unless I do it right.

So i'm looking into ARP extended wheel studs.

I dont want to pay a shop to do this though. The labor to get the knuckle out ec... is just going to be horrible. and I've spent 2 weeks on getting this together I really dont want to have to get that knuckle out myself again.

That being said I dont want to have to replace the wheel bearings etc... right now.

So I've already cut a little piece off the splash guard beacuse that helped me a lot when i put on the oem Replacement studs. but I can't remember if it would still give me enough space to put in some extended ones.


I would assume all I'd need to do is just get the tip in and then get an open ended lug nut to help me pull it through the way I did with the OEM replacement

So has anyone done this at home without the use of a press?

Is it possible if I grind down the hub just a little, and grind down one side of the head of the stud? Will that affect the safety of the stud?

Also has anyone put extended wheel studs on thier rear end ? was it any easier? harder?

any/all info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: how impossible is it to install extended wheel studs with no press?

not too sure if this will help but....

Im not sure if the assembly's are the same but maybe...

Back when I had my '94 accord, I broke a front stud. To replace it w/o a press, I used a slide hammer. I just rented it from autozone for free. It managed to pull the spline apart pretty easily. This was a long time ago and Im not exacly sure how I mounted the slide hammer bracket, but I didnt need to cut or break anything. Im thinking there were two holes close to the stud holes with threads. The bracket just screwed into those two holes. Then slamming the hammer away from the hub pulled everything apart. Make sure not to damage the bearing race and re lube it when putting it back together.

hope that helps but i think i confused myself writing that...

Re: how impossible is it to install extended wheel studs with no press?

cool thanks for the reply


I'm thinking i'm gonna end up going with the 15mm spacers from H&R which is supposedly the best brand out there for these things.

They come with extended studs. but through my searching i'm finding that a lot of people go with ARP extended studs. My question is why?

Whats wrong with the H&R studs? they're the best out there for spacers, but thier studs suck? I dont get it.

Any light on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
