Default Reccomend replacing lug bolts with wheel studs and nuts?

I have a Cub Cadet Original, and I bought dual wheel adapters for it. The original lugs are too short, and they won't go through the wheel. I tried finding lug bolts that would be the correct size but I can't find any. Should I try replacing the lug bolts with wheel studs and lug nuts so the wheel adapters can reach? It might even be easier to replace the wheel and tires too.

Do you think I could use regular bolts with lug nuts as opposed to wheel studs since I have some of those lying around?

I have used regular 7/16-20 bolts, screwed in from the back. But I had to grind just a little under the head because the threads didn't go completely to the head. I am talking just something like 1/16" or so. Look at your bolts and you will see what I mean. Other than that,they worked fine. I have also used 7/16-20 all-thread/threaded rod with a thin jam nut in the back behind the flange. I found the 7/16-20 all-thread at Fastenal.

Or to keep from grinding, put a washer under the head. The bolt method won't work on later tractors with disc brakes.

Those make so much more sense than the bolts that IH used.

I'm thinking of doing this too. I am assuming the jam nuts are only used on the back side of the flange so the rim sits properly?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
