Default Thread tap for L2250 hub

On my L2250 - had an incident where the studs loosened while seeding 14 acres hay - long story short - I lost 3 studs in the field (one stud was always missing) and was able to salvage 2 studs holding the wheel to the hub. I stole one stud from the other side installing the 2 remaining and the one stolen in a diamond pattern in order to finish the seeding and get back on the trailer and to the barn. I ordered new studs from Messics, got those installed but still having difficulty with one thread not accepting a stud. I need to re-tap that thread. Anyone know the tap size or how I can find that information?

Take the stud to a fastener place like, Fastenal, and have them tread gauge it and then get a tap to match.

Or just take the stud and use a cutoff wheel to put a slot down near the start of the threads and us it as a tap. Just have to buy another stud.

Here's a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ewu6VOrgU8

I had not thought of Fastenal - used to have an account there - years ago. Also - interesting video of splitting one of the studs.

Thanks both to answering.
