I've read somewhere I need to shave off about 1/3rd of the lug stud to sneak into the front hub on my 2005 AWD CRV. Do I just have to do this on one side of the stud on the head? I'm just trying to figure out where exactly I need to grind down the stud?

A test fit should tell you. Hopefully your grinder is close.


(I try not to let tire shops torque my lug nuts...haven't had a broken stud in 30 years as a result!)

Grinder is close, but when I look at the stud, it doesn't even look like there is room to take it out. Just want to make sure it is even doable?

First time I ever had a lug stud fall apart, thanks to the tire shops!

downloader, did you help me with this post in another crv forum? If that is you, could you please let me know which forum that was as I re-installed my operating system this week and lost all my links to everything. I tried searching for the original forum where I posted and still no success.
