I noticed when installing my rear wheels after a brake job that the holes for the wheel studs are starting to show enlargement and curling around the shoulders. Is there any remedy to make these wheels last longer? Or is replacement my only option?

Sounds like too much torque? I kinda noticed that on mine a few years ago.......I was tightening too much.


He who dies with the most toys doesn't necessarily win, but had more fun getting to the finish line.

Yes, evidently sometime during their life someone was really over tightening them. I’m going to try a couple of different things to see if I can still save them. I read on a Chevelle site that someone actually used convex washers on their original rims. Thanks for your comment.
