brake hub studs

so this shop put my tires on... they cross threaded two of my nuts on my passenger front... so now when I go to take them off they are going to break the studs... so my question is can u just replace the studs seeing its a whole hub assembly... or do u have to replace the whole hub assembly?

You can replace the studs. Or rather they can since they did it.

If you have documentation of them taking the tires off there should be no problem getting the shop to cover it. Def don't pay outta pocket for that man.

Yeah, you can just replace the studs. If you haven't took them off then how do you know they are crossthreaded? I don't think the studs are going to break just by taking them off and even if the did you can still replace them. When you go to replace them take the wheel off. Hammer the old one out through the back. Put the new one on the hole straight and with the splines lining up. Put a bunch of washers on the front and the lugnut. Tighten the lugnut up by hand to pull the stud all the way in.
