Wheel Stud Installation Tool
This wheel stud installation tool will forever change how you install the studs on your Mustang or Ford Lighting! You'll no longer need a press to install new wheel studs! Simply thread on your lug nut and then slide your tool over the new stud, then tighten down with a ratchet or impact wrench! The tool has ball-bearings on the bottom which allow it to rotate with each turn of the wrench. Once your stud is secure, take off the lug nut and tool, and your stud is centered and securely in place! Securing and centering your studs has never been this easy!
- Fits on most all automotive and light-duty truck wheel studs, import and domestic.
I put five lugs each into a set of axles. I guess it worked because the wheels are still on the car. The bearing feature of this tool is great: if one uses a lug to pull the stud into its hole, the axle hub gets chewed up. If one places this bearing between the lug and the hub, then no torsional forces are placed on the hub face. So if a dope like me can pull five studs onto each of two axles, I guess the tool works.
The only reason I didn't award the 5th star is that I had this uneasy feeling that the stud threads were being "traumatized". Cost out how much a shop charges to press the studs in, then decide whether you want this tool.
