    The other day i was driving th DC to visit my best friend and i got about
    half way and my tire blew out and the guy that helped me broke off two of
    my studs(bolts) and i made it all the way with two studs on opposite sides
    but my question is how hard is it to replace the studs i talked to one guy
    and he said that i needed all these tools and it would take a long time
    but im thinking that i wont need all that stuff but i dont want to jump in
    not knowing what im doing so if anymore knows any sites or anything please
    write me back thank you

    Ouch. Very risky driving on 2 studs. Those could of been over
    stressed... Knock the old studs out with a punch then feed the new ones
    in from behind. Use a wrench or a impact to draw them through but make
    sure you use some spacers/washers so you dont run the nut over a none
    threaded part by going to far. That should be all there is to it. Add
    some never-seize to the threads before you start and the final torque
    will be 100 lb ft.
