chevy 8.5 wheel studs

I need to change the (lug) studs on my g-bodied 8 1/2 inch 10 bolt rear end. The Weld wheels that I am useing have a rather thick hub ,and had to put them on with a long lug. For saftey sake can anyone tell me if the lugs are pressed in or screwed in? I plan to install some much longer studs and would like to be prepared.

I have never seen a screwed in wheel stud . You may or may not be able to get longer studs with the same diameter splined shank . I had to put longer studs in every hub on my T-bucket and had to buy a drill bit to drill out the holes after I knocked out the old studs . Make sure you get the bit about .020 smaller than the O.D. of the splines . Buy a handful of regular lug nuts and some washers to pull the new studs in . (put the flat side of the nut toward the hub) Use plenty of never seize to keep from galling the threads as you pull the studs in . Worked for me .l

Factory axles use pressed-in splined lug studs, only aftermarket axles are threaded for screw-ins.
