    Are the rear wheel wheel nuts actually nuts meaning the wheel is on studs or, are the nuts actually bolts ? :027:

    The wheel is slid/sat in on studs and them you thread nuts onto the studs, is that what you are asking?.
    Do you think about these things at 90 mph....did I tighten them, was that last shimmy feeling the wheel about to fall off.... :008:

    Thanks, you 3  chaps, wheel is on studs then :028: I know what you mean Trekker, I once forgot to tighten the nuts on the front nearside wheel on a Cortina, did 10 miles, big wobble ,wheel came off and went under a parked lorry, I shot past with showers of sparks coming off the brake disc so the lorry driver said  :156:

    Why are you asking the question just a few hours after being chuffed about fitting your hugger with the rear wheel ON?

    He's going to take it off to see how easy it is to put back on with the wheel removed.  :164:
