I was going to replace my front brake disks for new standard brembo's.. The surface is deteriorating due to age.. however Ive been told that I will then have RH threads on both wheels, not left/right like now and that I will need to by new wheels nuts (i have nice domed chrome ones fitted)

Are the studs easily changed?

Is it worth getting them skimmed?

And feedback is appreciated..

Thanks

You mean they are wrinkled? ;^)

If they are worn unevenly or rusty, they can be skimmed as long as the thickness is to factory specs.
Normally, the minimum thickness is stamped or cast into the disk.

New front disks come with RH thread studs, but you can replace with your existing so lug nuts will be fine.
Not sure of your tools, experience, but a complete repair manual is a must if you are going to do much maintenance on your Alfa.
Disk replacement is not exotic.
Be safe !
