cast wheel studs question

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!

I needed replacement lug nuts for an old bat wing mower. I took one down to the local auto parts shop to see if they could match it up. They had a big catalog of lug nuts and studs - Dorman, if I recall, and there must have been hundreds of variations. You could probably find exactly what you need like that.

IIRC factory wheel & wheel weight bolts have ribs in shank of bolt close to bolt head so bolt remains were installed while installing wheel clamps or weights & then installing LW/nuts

From a technical point of view I don't think it matters. But from a practical point of view it's a whole lot easier to start a nut on a stud, then to line up bolt holes while holding a rim in place.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
