Rotor removal with wheel studs?

Hello, I'm going to be installing a BBK up front soon and want to know what to anticipate. Has anyone encountered issues removing the rotors with studs installed? Not sure if they make it more difficult.

Studs are installed into the wheel hub flange, they are mutually exclusive of the rotor. Just make sure when taking off your rear rotors the E-brake is not up.

I'm aware that the studs bolt into the hub but wasn't sure if the tight fit as the studs pass through the rotor into the hub might make removal of the rotor difficult without removal of the studs.

Thanks Malek!

As already stated, the rotor shouldn't be so tight on the lug studs that they get stuck. If you run into any trouble getting the rotor off the hub, this thread may be of some help.

Good luck!

It does make the rotor a tiny bit harder to remove . You can get away with just loosening the caliper bolts and removing the rotor without studs. With studs I imagine you need to remove the caliper completely to remove the rotor. Minor difference but it is a difference

Rotor may be frozen to hub. You may have to whack circumference with mallet.
