Well today was the day! I finally got the time to get the tires on the ARE D's! One of my wife's co-workers husband has a tire shop, and he made me a GOOD deal. The tires are "Polaris" brand, but for $38 a piece I took 'em. Funny the 205's & 225's were the same price, LOL!!!

Anyway, by the time they got to one of the rear tires, and removed the hubcaps, I found out I was minus one wheel stud :( Is this a "biggie" to do it yourself? Or should I take it back Saturday? Times was running out on me tonight, and I had to pick up my son, so..........

You were right to jump on those wheels ... that was one heck of a deal you got!! I bet the car looks awesome, huh?

The wheel stud is no biggy ... get one at pep boys, remove the drum, and pound it in from the back side. Just make sure it goes totally flush when knocking it in. Back ones are a bit of a pain to "knock" in sometimes as it's hard to get the angle on them. You can also just put a nut on (use one of your old lug nuts, not your new shiny chrome ones) and an impact gun to drive it into place.

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always get what you've always got
