Stud Hole Elongation tool (SHET) is for use with the Checkthread kit and is used for identifying elongation and damage to wheel stud holes. Includes 6 sizes – 21mm, 24mm, 26mm, 31mm, 32mm and 33mm
Elongation and damage can occur over time as the stud creates friction/heat against the wheel rim when the wheel rotates. The severity and speed of damage can be amplified with incorrect wheel fitment and cause melting, corrosion and elongation to the stud hole which can compound to result in wheel detachment.
The user should push the SHET into the stud hole to the depth of the corresponding size and if significant daylight can still be seen through the hole or there are clear signs of damage, the wheel should be evaluated and considered for replacement in line with company wheel safety policies and procedures.
Includes 6 sizes – 21mm, 24mm, 26mm, 31mm, 32mm and 33mm
