How much is it to replace wheel studs?

I was just told that I have missing studs and some are threaded. I want to know how can that happen and how much is it to get them replaced.

My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there – the wheel studs on your vehicle are pressed in – from behind the hub. This makes it really difficult to understand how they can be "missing". They are pressed in under considerable force, and pretty-much have to be pressed back out. If a stud is stripped (air wrench at a tire shop can do this easily), the remains of the old stud must be removed, again, with force, before the new stud is pressed in. I would recommend wheel stud replacement by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

If your wheel stud has been damaged, stripped, or broken, you will need to replace the stud to ensure the security of your wheels and maximize the safety of your vehicle. A mechanic will usually charge between $60 and $120 to replace a wheel stud because it takes less than an hour.
Yes. Losing a wheel is not a fun situation. Fortunately, lug studs are fairly easy to replace. I started by pulling the wheels off, which is not normally my first step, but since I have been planning some suspension work, the Corvair has been on jack stands for months.
If you`re just like everyone else, you`ve tightened the lug nuts on your car without using a torque wrench. You`re an “all the muscle you can put into it” kind of guy, and now you`re staring at a broken wheel stud. You can fix tire bolts yourself in about an hour and for less than $50.
The wheel studs that go on your car are made of metal, which means that they should last a lifetime. Due to wear and tear over the years, a wheel stud may have to be changed out. Neglecting to get a wheel stud replaced when it is damaged can lead to a number of unsafe situations.
It is not safe to drive with a broken wheel stud because once a stud breaks, it puts additional pressure on the remaining wheel studs, causing them to eventually break as well. The wheel will start to wobble and could fall off and possibly cause an accident.
Hi thanks for your question. My advice is that this is very dangerous and the car should not be driven with only 2 lug nuts. If any of the remaining two were to also snap, this would cause catastrophic damage and potentially a dangerous car accident.
Improper installation, over torquing of lug nuts, or under tightening of lug nuts can all cause a wheel stud to fail.
You can definitely drive with short distances with 4 of 5 lug nuts, but I would fix this problem before your trip. Right, if the lug won`t tighten, its not really doing anything (or can`t be counted on anyway). Try to remove it before it removes itself into someone`s windshield.
Wheel stud failures on vehicles is a relatively common problem. The problem of wheel fixing failure occurs across a range of vehicle types and manufacturers but is predominantly a problem relating to heavy goods vehicles.
First, if a stud is being tensioned (not torqued), then it`s fine to reuse them, as torque doesn`t come into play. Second, if a person is willing to run the threads on both the studs and nuts with a tap-anddie, thus renewing the threads, then the fasteners can safely be reused.
Measuring a wheel stud with a vernier caliper will give you the best measurements for buying a new replacement wheel stud. You will need to measure the overall length of the stud, the diameter of the threaded shaft and the diameter of the knurl or collar of the bolt directly under the stud head.
NO there is a safety reason for the lug nuts on a car. Any missing lug nuts will make that tire out of balance and loosen the other lug nuts. Then could damage the wheel studs, breaking them off. Turning will put uneaten pressure on the wheels.

All of the lug nuts are necessary. Leaving even one off could result in warping of the brake rotors or drums, necessitating their replacement.

Do I need to replace the hubs to go back to factory wheel bolts.
ANSWER : You’re wise to go back to factory fasteners. While there are a few good quality aftermarket products out there for your car, most of the options are a kind of one-size-fits-all that involve spacers and adapters that change the design offset and lead to all kinds of suspension and wheel bearing problems. you should not need to replace the hubs as long as the threads are not damaged. It should be possible to extract the studs through conventional means. If a hub IS damaged, then there is no choice but to replace it. This will involve replacing the wheel bearing as well so it can get expensive. If this project is more than you want to take on, you can contact Your Mechanic to have a technician come to your home or office and change out your wheels for you

When replacing a wheel hub on an acura , do I have to replace the wheel bearing to? 1997 Acura RL
ANSWER : Hello – perhaps the question should be "Do I have to replace the wheel hub/bearings if one or more studs are broken off?". And, the answer is "No, simply replaced the broken studs." That is – unless the hub or wheel bearings were damaged by whatever incident broke the studs. If it is necessary to replace the hub, you are better off buying a hub/bearing assembly – even if you have a choice (for most new cars, you don’t). Replacing a bearing within a hub requires heavy duty press tools to press the old bearing out and the new bearing in. you need experience, comfort level and specialized tools for this. I would recommend having a wheel hub/bearing assembly replacement done by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

4 wheel high wont work, 2 wheel and 4 wheel low will. 1997 GMC Sierra Electronic shift (of course). Replaced the front axel actuat
ANSWER : You are correct to think that the transfer case itself or the control module for it could be causing this issue. The only other possibility would be a wiring issue directly behind the switch preventing the four wheel drive high setting from working properly. I would enlist in the assistance of a qualified professional to check your four wheel drive circuit with a wiring diagram and digital multimeter to determine if the issue is electrical or mechanical. Once this has been done, the correct repair procedure can be identified.

i 20 elite sportz diesel i want to replace my car wheels with alloy wheels.Present wheel dimensions 185/70R14.
ANSWER : As long as you get the same size rim, you should be fine. Check on the factory rim to see if a size is stamped somewhere. It is usually on the inside of the rim so you may need to pull the wheel off the car to see it. When you find a wheel that you like, contact or look up the manufacturer and see if they have a fitment chart. The local wheel and tire store should be able to measure you current rim and determine what size wheel you can buy and still use the same tires.

Just had wheel speed sensor replaced, is the replacement of wheel bearings something I must do right away 2012 Chevrolet Impala
ANSWER : Hello. Unless the bearings are actually failing and making noise then they do not need to be replaced. I usually get the vehicle in the air and spin the bearings to listen for any noise or fell for any roughness. If there is none then it does not need them. If it does then they should be replaced soon. If you want to have them looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [see if you need bearings] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/wheel-bearings-replacement

ANSWER : Anything is possible with enough engineering. The changes you are looking at would take major structural changes and would definitely not be an easy job. You could possibly consult a manufacturing engineer to get more details on how this could actually be carried out and whether it would be feasible.

I hear an abnormal noise from front driver’s side wheel. It sounds like a wheel bearing but not sure.
ANSWER : A wheel bearing noise can be different between vehicles as some designs may vary a little. The most common is a roaring noise that may change when going around turns. It may be louder going in one direction or the other or just make a loud noise all of the time. The wheel hub presses into the wheel bearing. The hub is where the studs are for the wheel to be bolted onto the steering knuckle and the bearing provides the support for the wheel and weight of the vehicle. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take a closer look at your wheel bearing noise to offer a more personal diagnosis.
