Im thinking about changing my front wheel back to 4.00x12, not sure whatthey are know. Heres the question, are all the hubs the same as far as bolting the the steering arm ?? I know there are 2 types of studs, the press style and bolts. Has anyone ever took the press style and threaded the hub or used bolts and nuts ??

Certainly you can change out the studs for bolts but it seems it might be a lot harder to mount a rim and tire with bolts. Unless the holes are wallowed out you can press out the old studs and replace them. I had mine out and reinstalled them during my rebuild.

More like the "hammer" in thing. Although I wouldn't actually hammer them in. The way I put them back in was to set the hub in the rim (the hubs were off for new bearing and paint) and install the nuts to hand tight and hit them with an impact wrench. Watch when you put them back in the holes to make sure you get splines and grooves aligned. You will be able to see the studs pull into the holes and bottom out. Then just back off the nuts and take the hub off the rim. Ta Da! "pressed" in studs.

Not sure why you need new Hubs here?? Looks like orig hubs in picture. If it is 5bolt hub, that fits many brands/sizes of wheels and would think the new 12" wheel would just bolt up! Those wheels are same as IH Cubs, should be easy to find or buy new. You won't be changing the steering parts at all, they are seperate assembly. I'm confused on what you are asking?? :dunno:

my frt hubs dont have lug holes. the wheel is kept in place with the wheel bearing. Id like to put 12 inch wheels on her.

I understand the lugs know, they are bolted to the wheel, but the are pressed in the hub. OK, thanks all.
