On average, the cost for a Ram Dakota Wheel Stud Replacement is $217 with $122 for parts and $95 for labor. Prices may vary depending on your location.
Wheel studs are high-strength, threaded steel fasteners that securely hold the wheel and tire assembly to the axle hub. Typically, there are 4 to 6 studs per wheel pressed or threaded into the wheel hub. The wheel and tire assembly is mounted on the hub centering ring and the studs protrude from the hub through the wheel mounting holes. Lug nuts are threaded onto the studs to securely hold the wheel to the hub.
No, but you can temporarily drive a vehicle at low speeds and for short trips with one missing wheel stud. However, if more than two studs are broken, it is recommended to repair the car prior to further use. Having all wheel studs in place with evenly tightened lug nuts prevents distortion of the brake rotor. Over longer periods, missing studs can damage the brake rotor, the wheel, and the remaining studs. A car may vibrate when driving with missing wheel studs and can cause the other studs or lug nuts to loosen. This can lead to the wheel separating from your tire while driving.
