Is this rim damaged?

The spindle nuts on my axle shaft can loose. Causing my truck to DEATH WOBBLE! I was able to move tire back and forth up and down with little effort.

I'm replacing the bearings and tightened up spindle nuts. Everything right now now moving.

But the moving looks to have worn a groove in my studs! I took pictures. Wheel is still tight ad no play but 1. Do these studs need replaced even though wheel is right? 2. Does this rim look damaged? Never assessed this problem before so not sure. The holes are round and not ovaled out or rounded out. What do u think? Anyone have this problem before?

I would look into replacing studs and the wheel(s) for sure.

Bigger pictures? Can't really see anything on the ones you have posted now. Try uploading them to photobucket and posting a link.
With that said, if you have damage to the wheel studs I would replace them at the very least. Any groove in the shaft of the stud is going to act as a stress riser. Add 126-170 lb-ft of torque (Ford spec of lug nuts) axially, a static radial load of ~125lbs (7000lb truck divided by 4 wheels, divided by 8 lugs per wheel) and you're running the risk of sheering the stud. Might be able to get away with it, but I wouldn't risk it over something as cheap as a wheel stud.

Replace em both, damage to stud from rim walking causes rim damage too. New wheel, new studs- id do all 8 studs too.

Terry, my name's Ryan.
x2 on replacing all eight studs, as well as brake rotors and wheel bearings if the old one's are questionable. Might as well get everything done at one time if you are pulling the hub(s) off.

replace the studs, save the rims by having inserts put in them, a local rim shop should be able to do it for you and its cheaper than replacing the rims.

Thanks for all your help Guys! Here's what's going on:

1. Took everyone's advice. New studs on order, wheel insert place calling me today with part number for my application.

2. The wobbling effect wasn't helped by the spindle nut inside the hub coming loose and the hub wasn't tight against the spindle. Checked the bearings and repacked with grease the seem fine. Spins good and tight. Not driving until new studs on.

3. Now I ran into a new problem while checking the pass. Side. I'm installing dana 60 manual locking hubs so pulled everything out to re-pack bearings and check u-joints etc... And my axle shaft that comes out through the spindle has some shimmy to it. With the spindle on in able to wiggle it in all directions a little bit. Ordering spindle bearing today. Hopefully just the one on the end of the axle shaft.

Am I missing something. Sorry no pics or vids. Right now, this happened late last night.

As you can guess this is my first time ever doing anything like this. Learning as I go. ( from you guys on here so thanks in advance) can't afford to have Someone do this...
