And when need to remove the wheel for any reason, i imagine that the stud will unscrew from its place. Pls let me know sbout my concerns ryan, im tempted to do the conversion but dont feel like its safe.
      Stud conversions are quite common, especially in the racing world. I track my car heavily. As a matter of fact here is my car ready for this weekends track event. All my cars have run studs and have never had a problem with them at all.



      They are very safe. You even torque them to the same 80-85ft/lbs as you would your stock bolts. Care for the studs are just like your stock bolts, you check and re-torque them every once in a while.

      It is always good practice to replace your studs every few years if you track the car heavily, but then again you would do the same if you tracked with lug bolts.

      If they back out when you loosen your wheels then its because you either didn't use loctite or didn't use enough. Even if they do they back out then you can always apply loctite and screw them back in. To really get them to stay in there, some people use red lock tight but when its time to change them out they have to use the double nut trick and/or even use heat to get them out which is a major PITA.

      When you play with your wheels and tires all the time, its best to have studs because it helps you align the wheels and hang them easily and if you happen to ruin the threads on the stud, you just replace the stud versus replacing the whole wheel hub if you screw up the thread with a bolt. This happened to me when I first got my 96 m3, after that, it was studs all the way! Let me know if you have any other concerns

        I ordered 80mm studs for use with 20mm spacer and iX weaves. My weaves have a hub thickness of 10mm. I could have used 57mm studs, but I want extra thread.

        I will be posting a review when they arrive.:D
        My Mini-Review:
        My 80mm studs arrived Thursday, three days after they were shipped. Nicely packaged and super clean. :up:

        I was immediately surprised by how smoothly the nuts threaded onto the studs. I take this as an indication of good quality.

        Installation:
        I applied Blue Loctite (Medium Strength) to each stud immediately before threading them in. The 80mm studs do not have a HEX/Allen insert. For this reason, I used a 3/8" torque wrench and double nut technique to bring each stud to 10ft/lbs. When working with studs, it is useful to remember impulse momentum and mass: quick taps will drive the nut, while slow application of force will drive the stud.

        Boy! It is wonderful throwing the 20mm hubcentric spacers (not pictured) onto the studs and easily aligning the wheel.

        These are Castro's 80mm studs used with 20mm spacers and iX 15" weaves. As I expected, the center caps do not fit, but that is the trade off for having lots of thread. The caps may fit if 3-5mm were grind off the stud.

        Thanks again. :up:

        Edit: If anyone is wondering, the nuts are approx 26mm from tip to tail. My nuts appear to be the same as others pictured in this thread.

          Any luck on the pricing for the black set of 80mm studs w/o the need of a 5mm spacer

            I can get the black 75mm studs without the spacer but that is about a month out because they need extra machining. I can get matching black nuts for any of the black zinc studs that I have but they are an extra cost. I posted up the pricing for the matching bolts on my first post.

            let me know if you have any other questions.

              Package:
              I order the 57mm stud kit. The studs came in a USPS fixed rate box. Inside the box were two bags. One containing the studs and the other containing the stud nuts. Everything looked strong and error free.

              Installation is a breeze. If you can't take wheels off and put them back on...step away. Pictures below show the kit running with 15mm spacers.

              I haven't done the front wheels yet. I need to test to make sure the studs still work with a different offset than my rears. I'll do a test drive tomorrow, but I can't imagine anything going wrong. Everything fit perfectly and I'm hoping to get some for my M3 down the road.
              John, how many threads is that nut catching? Just concerned because I couldn't really see the stud peeking through the nut.

              Kaliboy, whats a safe number? Just curious.

                It was over 7 full turns prior to torquing. I believe the safe level is 6.5 full turns.

                        Installed my set of 57mm studs in the front and 80mm studs in the rear.

                        Ryan was a HUGE help in this process. I had many questions/problems and he was more then willing to help me. Ryan has gone above and beyond anything i would of expected as a seller on r3v, let alone the internet. I will not hesitate to buy another product from Ryan if and when i need more studs or anything product he intends to sell in the future.

                        A++++++ seller
