    Wheel Studs Not Fitting!!!

    Ok, finally got time this weekend to install some long awaited pads and rotors. I'm also attempting to install some arp 100-7017 studs. Well when installing the studs I tightened them down, they seemed to seat properly and be locked into the hub, but when backing off the lug nut the wheel stud just falls back out like they aren't big enough. I've seen a couple of part numbers thrown around on this site with arp studs, ARP-100-7717, ARP-100-7713 and ARP-100-1108. The car is a 2000 Camaro SS M6 with a stock 10 bolt. I'm thinking one of two things is wrong. I accidentally stripped the hub, or I'm trying to install the wrong wheel studs. Any help is greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance!

    Sound like the wrong studs. Do you have a micrometer?

    Sounds like you got either a J-body stud kit, or possibly the lug set for the early 4th gen steel wheel and hub cap v6 f-bodies..
