Trailer Studs, what do you think?

Recommended Posts

mnhays

I recently lost some of my trailer hub studs while DRIVING and I've not replaced them and fixed it all up, but now I am worried about the other side as well, what do you guys think about the quality of the studs on my other hub? Should I really be so worried because they're rusted a little? I'm pretty sure I'm fine but I'm wondering what you guys think! Thanks in advance!

Replace the broken ones, put some anti sieze on them all and use a torque wrench on the nuts (not an impact gun).

Sorry,

Getting to this a little late.

I specifically remember in Mnhays orig. post (with the roadside pics of his boat being towed on the trailer) that he stated that he hadn't checked the lug nuts in some time. That was most likely the cause of the failure on the side of the trailer with the broken studs.

Considering that the other side was subject to the same lack of maintenance (no disrespect Mn) I'd suspect that those studs are suspect. I would be replacing all the studs on both sides of the trailer and putting anti seize on them while installing the new lug nuts. This is not something you want to fail ever again.

Pete has spoken. Replace wins.
