Man I would help but i have never used press in studs in my life. They're always thread or they have a back on them like wheel hub studs. sorry.

What are you going to use them for and why not tap all the holes and use threaded studs?

Yeah even if you're trying to put stud's in aluminum i would look into hypercoils (spelling). They're wayyy stronger than most original threads, specially in aluminum and it would be a one time deal.

Were doing mild steel, were making an off road car and our professor gave away the rims (all 4) that fit our hubs, so we have to make adapter plates with isnt so bad except that our front hubs are 4x126mm and the rims are 4x156... yeah it sucks...

Did you google wheel stud? ARP makes 'em. With a little searching for size and length you could find an OEM stud to fit.

Seriously how can you guys be doing this an not have access to a Tap and Die set?

Did you consider re-drilling the wheels?

I had a type earlier, its 4x162 and 4x156 its impossible to drill them out.

I googled press in studs. Problem is all those studs are huge... we need something around 3/8

"Helicoils" or "helical inserts"

I've never used a pressed-in stud that didn't have a flange on the back side like a wheel stud does. Moroso makes a few different size wheel studs, smallest thread is 7/16"-20 though.

These are aircraft versions but would not think that a press in would be very safe/strong...

well most spindles are press in, alot of stuff are press in stuff and last a lonnng time. I'm not worried about them lasting as long as the tolerances are correct.

Turns out the guy who runs the shop is a **** and hid the taps/dies, but i found them and he will pay dearly for ******* with my project.

Those were what I was thinking of, they have to be pressed in with some insane amount of force, they're pretty strong but i wouldn't use them for anything like a wheel stud.
Helicoil is what i was thinking of, hate when I can't remember that crap.

trust press in stuff for spindles and others but not hub stubs? It will be plenty strong.
