    Following two seperate punctures:Sad:, on our 5th wheeler keystone cougar 276fs 2007 with alto axles 6 stud, we have one sheared stud and two kn\8ckered wheel nuts!:cry: Has anyone any idea where \i can get new studs and nuts?? I'd like to free off the other 12 studs / nuts on the other two wheels but daren't until I have some spares. I can take the drum off and knock out the stud and press in a new one. once all clean off, loads of copperslip and we are sorted:thumb:

    Cheers Paul

    I recently bought some from Demon Tweeks Motorsport- you need to know the thread size though..........

    I would suggest, being American, your studs will be a UNF thread. You can guage the size by measuring the diameter of the stud in inches, eg, 3/8 or 7/16, etc.

    Hope this helps!:thumb:

    dont want to sound condescending, however dont buy cheap replacements and look at the remaining studs carefully if they have been siezed. my preference is to change them all if theyve been overtightened especially if you needed a long bar or did damage releasing stuck bolts

    cant ever be too safe. will also allow you to change to a more easily available thread if needed:thumb:
