    Anyone know how to seat the stud do you just tighten the lug nut on to seat it or what

    Put a couple thick washers over the stud and then put the lug nut on and torque it down. This will pull the stud in and seat it. Just make sure you have the right size lug nut so that you don't strip the threads
