Might just be cheaper and easier to replace them. Depends on front or rear though. Front, pop off the rotor and they should be easy to get to, smack with a BFH and they come right out, then pull the new ones on with the nut and some washers. Much easier to get a few replacement studs than trying to find a thread chaser. Have you looked for a rethreading bar instead? I have a pair of them that are like a file with 8 different thread types per bar. You line it up with the threads and just file the nicks out with it. See if you can find those, they come in real handy.

ACDII, Your right, A Metric Rethreading Bar (Thread File) may be the best choice.. I can offer one tool that will correct the following metric pitches: 0.75mm, 1.0mm, 1.25mm, 1.50mm, 1.75mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm ALL for only $15.50
Delivery on the Dies: 10-14 Days
Delivery on the Thread File: 3-5 Days.
Remember, Hex Rethreading Dies are for just that: Fixing an existing thread.
A Round Adj Die is used for producing a new thread and requires a "Die Stock" to hold it during use.
Thread files only clear or clean out the buggered up portion of thread that lies within the ROOT of the thread.

Make sure you use either a thread file or a chaser die but not a cutting die.
If you cut threads to fix them on a machine made thread you will weaken the stud to the point that it could break even just from torquing the wheel.

Where did you ever here this? If the thread was cut to the correct specs on the machine, then the die will not cut any more material then ness. I could understand your reasoning if it was a bad thread or if you goofed the thread real bad. You don't weaken the stud at all. Are you reffering to a formed thread rather then a cut thread? My dad has been a tool and die maker for over 30 years, and has owned a precision maching shop for 15, and I've been around the business a long time myself and never heard anything of the sort. Like to know why you think this could weaken the stud? Def. not trying to knock you.
