autozone or O'riley's carry wheels studs and nuts behind the counter,
wheel studs are just hammered in from the back and have splines to keep them from turning,
I would do this,
take a wheel off, back a lug nut off until the outer edge is just post the end of the stud. then hit the stud with a hammer to drive the stud out the back, (that is unless you have to pull an axle, I havent really paid attention to the exact design of the trailer axle)
now you have a lugnut and stud, go to the parts store with items in hand. around here they will just let you look through their stuff until you find a suitable match. if not a kind parts guy will do it for you.
drive them in from the back and tighten.
I have done several, even redrilled ford axles to chevy bolt pattern.
here is my ford rear end with the redrilled chevy bolt pattern.
