This is a review of the M12 stud conversion kit for the R53 MINI Cooper S. This is the second stud kit that I have installed. The first set was of much lessor quality and was totally worn out within six years of auto-x, track days and winter tire change-over.
These new studs appear to be far superior and slightly longer. I also like the unthreaded portion that allows lining up the nut to help prevent cross threading.
I do have one question; Do you recommend any using any lubrication on the threads of the studs?
I installed the Cravenspeed "Big Pair"today. Huge difference, just what the F56 chassis needed. Well made and very easy to install.
I own a 2013 Mini Cooper R59 and have ordered a significant amount of items from this website. ran into some issues with the fitment of some things but Aaron from Outmotoring was quick to solve the issue. I am very pleased with the quality of all the items I have ordered and as far as I am concerned, this is the only place to get genuine, high-quality MINI accessories and parts!
