You can use the "press in" studs with a head but make sure the head isn't going to be so thick as it fouls the levers and shoes inside the drum.
An alternative is to use screw in studs. I have done this in the past to bugs. Late bugs are M14 x 1.5 I put a grinder nick in the back face of the drum across each stud hole. Once the stud was wound in almost flush with the inside of the drum I set the MIG to 11 and gave each nick and stud base a weld. Never had a stud work loose.
Did the same on Bay rears when I put longer studding on to fit 5 spoke Revolutions. My bay crew did some hard work and some heavy towing on those drums and rims and never had an issue.
