With most street legal cars which comes from the factory it will either have wheel studs or wheel bolts. Some of those parts are extremely difficult to come by. This is why we are here designing and creating top tier wheel studs for all vehicles.
Wheel bolts are standard on many German-built cars, and use a threaded stem attached to a tapered head that matches to the wheel insert. The bolt goes from the wheel, through the brake rotor hat, straight into the hub, locking everything in place. The difficulty with bolts is, the brake rotors are free to rotate while the wheel is off since there's no stud holding them in place. That means you have to realign the rotor with the hub inserts (along with the wheel) when you're putting everything back together.
Wheel studs and lugs are different in that, instead of using a single piece that screws into the hub, the studs are mounted in the hub, and stick out beyond the brake rotor hat. The wheels are mounted using lugs, which are screwed onto the stud. This makes it easier to mount tires without having to worry about lining everything up. Knox does warn, however, that having studs that are too long may leave you with issues should one of them bend or break.
Broaching is a machining process that uses a toothed tool, called a broach, to remove material. There are two main types of broaching: linear and rotary. In linear broaching, which is the more common process, the broach is run linearly against a surface of the workpiece to effect the cut.
Numerical control is the automated control of machining tools by means of a computer. A CNC machine processes a piece of material to meet specifications by following a coded programmed instruction and without a manual operator directly controlling the machining operation
Bolts can come in a wide range of different sizes and shapes, but the basic production process generally remains the same. It starts with cold forging steel wire into the right shape, followed by heat treating to improve strength and surface treating to improve durability, before being packed for shipment.
Roll threading is a process by which steel is extruded to form the threaded portion of a fastener, instead of being removed as in cut threading. In this process, a bolt is manufactured from a reduced diameter round bar. For example, a 1″ diameter bolt is manufactured from
The main difference between castle and slotted nuts is found on the turret end section where the split pin is found. On the castle nut the end section is turned down slightly, enabling the split pin to be wound round and pinned against the turret so that the pin does not protrude. On a slotted nut this is not possible
