Yes you can by using Wheel Studs Replacement Wheel Stud, Screw-In, 1/2" x 2" Redline Accessories and Parts 25-53
. I did this back in 2008 when I replaced the old 15" rims on my 1976 31' Sovereign
with 16" aluminum wheels and tires. Here is the thread I started at that time on the change over.
Post 24 has a picture of the old Airstream hub with the wheel studs installed. I used lock tite on the threaded portion that screwed in to the hub and then mounted the wheel chrome lug nuts. I never had a problem with them at all. In 2010 I replaced the old original axels with new axles and hubs that came equipped with studs.
