i would say only if you were taking it to get fixed and then at low speed !!!!!!!!!!!! , dont forget if anything was to happen and the police spotted it you would be in big trouble driving an unroadworthy car :sad:

The studs are that rusted its taking me a hour a snall breaker bar and loads of wd40 to realese the other 3.

I snapped a wheel stud a couple of years ago, I didnt over tighten it, I have no idea why it snapped, Had loads spare and they are easy to change
