    Alright, so winter sucks, ok. It sucks because in columbus, people dont know how to drive, and even more so beause I somehow cracked a rim on a pothole, and in doing so it decided to start wobbling and sheared a few bolts off, such that now I only have two attached bolts, and the rest are either all gone, including the studs, or missing the bolts. My question is this. Do i just buy new rims and retap the bolt? or do I have to buy a new axle..... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    any help would be insanely appreciated.
    thanks a bunch

    So the wheel wobbled causing the studs to break? Its really not that big of a deal, just take the rotor/hub off and pound the broke studs out and go get some new ones and press them in. Thats all there is to it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah just go get you a used rim or whatever you want and then fix the broke studs and get some new lug nuts and your set to go. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
