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?
3 orders and I can say that Out Motoring has a customer for life. Shipping has been exceedingly quick, prices are more than fair (beating competition by at least $1), and the reward points are a nice touch to take a little money off the next order. I'll definitely be coming back for more once the weather warms back up.
Ever since I have stumbled onto this site I have not been able to leave it. The prices are good and the customer service is top notch. I will be a customer for life due to all the above and great products. Thank You..
