He has some steel wheels as well but the seats on those do not look like they are radiused or tapered they just look like a square edge!

changing the studs doesn't need a press, I've done loads over the years.

Think knocking out the old ones would be ok as they are being thrown away, but the Brickwerks guidance specifically says do not use lug nuts to pull the new studs through as it will damage the studs. Guess you could pull through initially to get them square and started and then hammer them home or maybe rig up a vice and some steel packers as a press? Not sure what force is needed or how easily they press in, what did you do mrhutch?
