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?
A note of appreciation from our MINI club...
This year we raised $1,091 for charity that we donated to the area food back and a local pet shelter. Your generous donation of merchandise helped make this possible. (I was very happy to have won the stubby antenna!)
Thank you again for your generosity and the great variety of merchandise you sent.
We had about 40 MINIs at the car show and great weather -- that got everyone in a generous mood and got us over the $1,000 goal. A fitting end to an awesome summer. Thank you again!
I've been ordering from OutMotoring.com for years and have always experienced great customer support along with fast order processing.
