Default Need a thread chaser for a wheel stud

I failed safety today because my LR wheel was missing a lug nut. I looked at it the the top of the stud is jacked up but I think its still saveable.

So if anyone has one lmk. I'm going to verify the thread pich and what not but any help is appreciated.

you just need to take the wheel off. Take off your rotor. Wack the stud with a big hammar. Spin the hub around where you can access the hole and stick the new one in. You can probably turn the wheel enouugh you can give it a few good wacks from the back. Put the rotor and wheel back on and use a lugnut to pull the stud all the way into it's place. Finished, less than 2 hours I would guess.

so we got the wheel off, had to fight with the rotor a bit got that off... only to find out that in order to replace the stud I would have to remove to entire hub assembly... F that so we got a grinder and ground off the tips of the bolts. The new lugnut will go on all 5 studs np. so I have to get some more lugnuts that arent all f'd up like originals and go from there. But I do plan on replacing the hub assembly in the short term.
