Drilling out wheel studs?

Can anyone explain exactly what this consist of? I did a search but didn't find anything too useful.

need more details...

why do you need to do this? just want longer wheel studs or did you snap one off....

usually it doesn't need to be drilled, a hard hit with a hammer and tap will take one out pretty easily.

Had to drill a stud out myself, my own bone head move. Use a punch to set the center of the hole and start with a small drill bit to get a fair way in. Next use a 1/4 inch bit with some oil/lubricant and if you have a replacement stud you can get a pretty good judgement on the depth you need. When I got to where I felt it was deep enough of a hole I snapped the stud off with a screwdriver. Hope this helps.

I to had to do this with rim still on except I cross threaded the lug bad and spun the splines out of the stud. It can be done though.

the key to this is lubrication.... when drilling a stud the heat created is crazy, use lots of lubrication on the bit.

Its honestly not a hard task.... drill deep with a small bit, widen with a larger bit.... use a tap, hit it with a hammer and the stud will break because it was significantly weakened by being drilled.

You will then need to remove the wheel, take the disk off and replace the stud.
