Wheel Stud upgrade

When should it be considered to upgrade from the stock 7/16"-20 wheel studs to 1/2"-20 studs?

I knew someone was going to reply with that exact response.

Vast majority street pleasure driven with an occasional run down the strip. Maybe even a run or two in a closed course. Just to see how she does. With my numbers, CamQuest6 and Desk-Top Dyno estimate just shy of 500hp/Tq.

Re: Wheel Stud upgrade

Besides the HP (really should be torque) questions, many disc brake conversion kits use 1/2-20 so that somewhat forces an upgrade. From my past experience I'd think running with 500 lb/ft torque or more you should go to 1/2-20. Also, if you stick with OE 7/16-20 and have a high HP/torque setup you might want to go ahead and replace the studs just for safety since they are over 40 years old.
