i have them, with Mag wheel nuts for full nerd effect. This setup was about half the weight for each respective wheel, as i take my wheels off a-lot to swap pads this made things simple also keeps the lovely red callipers chip free , they are very strong and i Tq slightly higher due to the semi slick tyres i run, and finally it looks cool AF.

they also can accommodate upto to 12.5mm spacers on each axle,

Beedub do you have the info on the studs you got mate and where you got them from? I like the fact they don’t stick out far from the wheel faces any details would be brilliant :)

Probably!

I want a new set of wheels. Once I've got some I'll convert to studs at same time.

Beedub do you have the info on the studs you got mate and where you got them from? I like the fact they don’t stick out far from the wheel faces any details would be brilliant :)

with a 12,5 MAX spacer the nut end sits flush with the HEX of the stud.... i can dig out the info this evening, the studs were made by ARP fastenings for turner motorsport at the time, they may have changed supplier, these do require a-little maintenance now and then , so when undertaking wheel off services on other parts i occasionally check for TQ of the studs, check for proper engagement into the HUB, and check the threads of the studs.

The nuts are super trick, mag, very very light, and have a rotating Tq colar so they TQ down really nicely and also wont scratch the wholes on the rims.

Was asking a genuine question.

Also your response makes no sense.

I had them on mine before selling. Macht schnell kit from ca automotive. great kit would thoroughly recommend. For one much easier when taking wheels off or putting on. Secondly dont have to faff with changing bolts when changing spacers. thirdly look great imo - had the extended nuts as i dont like the look of the stud coming through .. also extended nut lockers too :driving:
