I have seen people use a D or G guitar string for lug studs, a cheap will cost about 5 bucks and you could make alot with a pack.

Oh, you could also use the smaller strings for antennas and such.

Also, you can look for Grant Line and Tichy Train Group plastic nuts and bolts in the train section of a well stocked hobby store. Look at them carefully. Along with normal hex bolts, there are square ones and both types with washers. You can also file/sand off the end of the bolt sticking above the nut and make it the bolt head.

I like these because they are about $3 for 40-50 or so, already have a bolt sticking out of the nut and also have a shaft that makes them easier to install.

As for lug nuts, I have found that (even though it is expensive) Plastruct hex shapes works well and comes in sizes that can be used for lug nut detail if cut to the proper length.
