Mine are on the floor in a box. I would prefer to know before I start tearing the car apart.

How difficult are these to install? Do the hubs need to be removed from the car?
No you do not need to remove the hub. Wheel, caliper, caliper bracket and disk do need removing though. You will then see a notch in the hub just for removing the wheel studs.

Thanks....Thought I had heard that from someone about the fronts, but was unsure about the rear hub.
Do you know what is the best way to "press" the new ones in? Should I just tighten them in before I install the wheel?

We just put the RacingBrake wheel studs on my 04. We found that the studs would not fit in the holes on the stock hubs. We called RB and they suggested we enlarge the holes slightly. We took their advice, and the studs finally fit, although we did have to notch the heads of the studs to get the fronts to fit. Other that the installation hassles, they look like a good product. My car was purchased for HPDE use, and a stud replacement -- based on what I've read here -- sounded like a wise precaution.

Feel free to PM me if you want any more info.

Is there any chance that RB will address this issue?

The replacement wheel studs are made the same dimension to OE (except with high tensile strength). Although most customers had no problem in installing them. It's not uncommon to clean (or enlarge) the stud hole in order to seat the new "knurl" stud properly.

There is no issue to address. The fitment and performance is guaranteed or your money back.
