Default alloy axle wheel stud question

this is probably a realy stupid question, but i just can't figure it out.

i bought a set of axles from alloy USA, and they came with treaded wheel studs.

now as far as i can tell, the studs turn out the same direction that the lug nuts turn on. so lets say after the lug nut gets removed a couple times and doesn't go on like when it was new, what would prevent the stud from backing out while i'm trying to screw the lug nut on???

i looked at it every which way and couldn't come up with an answer, so i loctited the hell out of it. but i'm still curious. did i overlook something???

i really don't want to accidently loose a wheel cuz i didn't notice the stud backing out instead of the lugnut going on all the way.

i tend to do that when i'm building something for the first time. i'm sure anybody that works on cars knows how that is. until you've done something a couple times, your always worried about screwing up and having something fall off.

i still don't understand what would stop the bolt from backing out though.

Hahaha you should ask greasemonkey about usin loctite on lugnuts. Im asuming u mean the studs thread into the shaft flange ?? instead of pressing in. Then i dont see a problem using loctite on that.

correct. that's what i meant. i didn't actually put loctite on the lug nuts. i'm not that paranoid. i'm just worried about the actual studs unscrewing since the lug nuts tighten in the same direction the the studs unscrew. so i put loctide on all the studs where they go in the flange, and bought all new lug nuts so they would go on smoothly at least the first time. plus the new studs were to long for my old ones anyway.
