How to replace front and reear wheel studs?

I have just got my new Boss 338 wheels and need to shim them out abit with spacers to get them to fit, the problem then is there is not enough threads left on the wheel studs.

How do I replace the old with longer ones? What do I remove and how? And is there any possibility to replace them without removing anything, just replace them on the car?

Theyre just pressed in. You can pound them out if your careful. And use a lug nut backwards(so the flat side is against the metal so you dont screw up the cone shape) to pull the new ones back in place.

Id recommend atleast pulling the front rotors off to do this(if this just a truck)

If you need to push them out more than like 1/4" or so, Id run a set of adapters instead.

Old ass thread I know, sorry. Are they pressed into the rotor? I haven't pulled it apart yet but I'd like to know what I'm getting in to. If so kick ass. Gf hit a pot hole and broke two.

Yes they are just pressed in. Remove the rotor and pop them out with a hammer. Place the new ones in and support the rotor on something solid and use a big punch and drive them in with a hammer. Just make sure they are down all the way, you can hear the sound change. If they are not in solid the wheel nuts can come loose when the studs are pulled in further by the wheel moving!

Now just reinstall the rotor.
