I was asked a question today that I couldn't truthfully answer, not knowing...
what is the PROPER answer to why one should use studs instead of an appropriate sized bolt to attach hub/rim clamps.
Obviously, that's the way they came from the factory... but, there must be a reason.
I have purchased and powder coated new rims, and the new studs I bought ( exact book dimensions ) aren't long enough because the rim is just slightly wider in the center rib.
I appeal to the brain trust!
