wheel stud change help

hey guys i need help before i do this i need to change all 20 wheel studs i just bough my mazda 6 and i got new rims so when i was taking off the lug nuts metal shavings where falling out so im guessing they put the wrong size or thread lugs on it? so when i change the studs do i need to take off the calipers or the whole rotor off? or can i just pound them out after i take the wheel off?

Here's my step-by-step DIY. GL!

Note: While following the steps to remove your brake calipers/discs, you not need to loosen/remove the brake lines. I did so only because I was changing lines and calipers.

Probably but it would be a complete bitch to do all 20 by hand.

I just did a search tonight, I need one stud for my '06.
Auto zone stud part # 610-468.1, $2.99 each. The shavings you saw may be from the lug nut grinding into the wheels. If the nuts turn on smooth with no binding, don't wobble (feel very loose) as they are turned on to the studs, crank down tight and stay tight, the studs are most likely ok. More info below if you end up needing it.

no fing way I would do that by hand. way too much risk of them not seating properly....... then you got bigger problems on your hands.

I wouldn't be worried about them not seating...just make sure they are squared up as you go. However, for them to go in easily you'd need a large breaker bar on there.


As I said up top....it would be a massive fucking PITA.
