Thank you for all you help and the quick order/delivery of a Countryman spare tire to my hotel in Minneapolis, MN.We are back home safe in Saratoga Springs, NY after delivering my son to U of Minnesota.We have 3 Mini's and you now have a customer for life.
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?
Replacing the puddle lights on my 2010 R56 with Ringed Mini Wings has been the highlight of my You-ification. There are ridiculously fun to see, as well as being very bright and easy to install. Every Mini should have these!
