Easy way around that is to put those studs in the freezer overnight and hang a trouble light on the hub. I do that even when I'm pressing stuff together.

Scott I know exactly what you mean! We do the same thing around here with more than just studs!

Yeah but it can be hard to come by in Podunk USA and has to be used right away.
For those of us that have garage beverage fridges it's cheaper and easier to throw the parts in the freezer overnight.

As per Clifford's suggestion I finally had some time to look at the wheels.  On the rim it says:

Alcoa  7200lbs max  120psi T-DOT
0994 Part #983100   24.5x8.25  15degree DC

The nuts I'm using are:  EUC E5977L  outer cap nut.

Anyone know from this if I have the correct combination??

Thanks,
David

According to this web site https://www.fleetwheel.com/store/page8.html (on page one) it says Budd stud piloted wheels all use 1.5" non-flange ball seat nuts.  So it that's what you have you should be good.
