Well I snapped one of the studs for a lug nut taking a tire off. Eventually I'll have to put the tire back on so I need to find my options for repairing it. Can just the studs be changed or do I need to replace the whole wheel piece? I figure I'll change out my rotor also since it is grooved. Any suggestions/advice?

yep, disassemble the hub assembly (might as well clean and repack the bearings while you're in there) punch the studs out the back knock the rotor off, buy new stud (might as well get all 5) slap it back together and away you go.

Yeah, you can pull the hub, pound the broken stud out and replace it..I am pretty sure that NAPA sells replacement studs.

Thanks. I'll probably do all the studs since it's all kinda crappy. Then I'll have a nice shiny rotor and new studs yet a rusty looking wheel. Anyway to clean it up? I imagine if I wanted to sand blast it I would have to get the bearings out and tape off the areas I don't want sand in.
