If you do a lot of wheel changes for Autocross or for frequent seasonal tire changes this kit is a must have. Having studs instead of traditional lug bolts makes aligning wheels to the rotor a breeze because the studs stick out from the hub and you basically just 'hang' the wheel on the studs and push it on. While there are other, lower cost stud conversion kits on the market, this kit is over engineered and designed for hard core track use.
Remember, your wheel stud and lug nut are the only thing holding your wheel on at 100+ MPH!!
Made in USA for race applications.
These 12mm x 1.5 (2002-2006 MINI) or 14mm x 1.25 (all MINI 2007 to Present) thread wheels studs are custom made for MINI race applications. They are 92mm total length with 16mm of bullet nose, 51mm of lug nut thread, 10mm of shank and 15mm to thread into the wheel hub. Heat treated with rolled threads and rated at 190,000psi.
These wheel studs work with hub centric spacers up to 20mm. Lug nuts are 12mm x 1.5 thread with 17mm hex head or 19mm hex head for 14mm x 1.25 stud. Easy use in both stock, sport and race wheels and are made with 60 degree taper to fit stock and aftermarket wheels. They are also coated yellow, to prevent rusting and for easy locating on the ground or in your tool box.

- Wheel stud total length- 92mm
- Lug nut threaded length- 51mm

Wheel studs make mounting wheels easier and are recommended for all aftermarket wheels. Use small amount of anti seize on lug nut threads during install and use Red Loctite to install the stud in the hub. Recheck wheel studs after first 2 uses and spot check from then on. Replace wheel studs after 12 track days or every 2 years. Remember to carry spares.
