on a 1-10 scale how dangerous is...

so I just replaced the passenger side hub assembly and got the one with the coarse threads on accident.... the only parts store in town only had 4, M14x2.0 lug nuts... so i currently only have 4 on one of the wheels. Ordered some online should be here by the end of the week.... how dangerous is driving around with only 4

I'd find 4 fine thread studs/ nuts and pop the course ones out before ever driving around with 4 lug nuts.

The fine threaded studs/nuts are much more common, they should be easier to find

they are WAY easier to find and i didnt realize at the time how easy the studs were to pop out untill someone told me how to do it after I finished putting the old hub back on (twice because I forgot to put the yellow O ring on the first time -_-) I ordered some lugs from Ebay. Ill keep the driving to a minimum and possibly even swap out the studs from the old one in the next few days

Well I quit being lazy and swapped out the studs from the old hub. I saved $160 bucks by not buying the hub with the fine threads. If anyone is swapping a hub I recommend going this rout.

Here is the link. Autozone has a sale right now 20% off orders $100 or more so you save a bunch, just make sure you input the code. I just read the description and it clearly states "course threads" and in the "stats" says lug size M14x1.5 .... not the case, the course studs are M14x2.0 Ill never know why the fine thread option is 2x the price
