I went to pick up my twins at a party tonight & made it about 10 feet before I realized I had a flat.
I got out the jack & lug wrench but couldn’t get any of the lug nuts to budge.
i improvised a breaker bar & that worked but I sheared 2 of the studs - I only have 4.
i ended up taking my wife’s car to pick them up.
Question 1. Is it actually safe to drive a short distance to get replacement studs?
Question 2. Is it really all that easy to just hammer them out with a punch & hammer? 2A - do the replacement studs just slide in & tighten up when you tighten the nut?
In 30 years of driving this has never happened to me before. The party my twins went to - their friend’s dad was there & I believe is a US Army mechanic. He seemed to think the problem was not insurmountable & offered to help.
- my spare was flat also. What a great night this is. I was half expecting Urban to be reinstated today.
