Laser tools has produced a neat die set for repairing damaged wheel stud threads.

Each die is split into two halves meaning they can be wound down to the good part of the thread, usually found at the base of the stud. A 24mm hex adaptor is then fitted over the two halves of the repair die and wound back over the damaged portion of the thread, straightening and restoring it.

The Wheel Stud Thread Restorer set includes three split dies to suit the most common wheel stud or bolt sizes: M12 (1.25mm pitch) M12 (1.5mm pitch) and M14 (1.5mm pitch) and costs £27.82.
