Heating Hubs in oven

Installing new wheel studs into my stock XP1K hubs and I need to know how hot to bake the hubs in the oven and for how long.

Please help

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

I haven't changed studs on my RZR, but have changed a lot of them on cars. I've never had to heat one to remove it.
Just hit it straight back with a hammer, and a punch if necessary to remove, then pull the new one in with a nut.

I'm not putting the junk parts back in the hubs. I'm upgrading to something that won't break in 166 easy offroad miles

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

I've never heated any. Just hammer or press in.

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

I'm not sure the stock hubs are capable of handling these being pressed in without the hub heated and the studs frozen

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

You think Polaris or whoever manufactures the hubs heats them and installs frozen studs? Not likely.

I'm positive that they don't, but then again the wheel studs are complete junk!

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

I would put the studs in the freezer.

Re: Heating Hubs in oven

Another source to heat the hubs is boiling water on a Coleman stove. Very portable.

If you broke wheel studs the lug nuts were not tight - period. Or you rolled it down a hill several times

EXACTLY! I fully agree.Those wheel studs did NOT just break going off road without being loose or abuse.
