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 just ordered the SIZE MATTERS badge. Actually I don't have a Mini but is for my Dodge Ram 1500 pick up. It's big.
I went to the outmotoring store on Monday and the lady who helped me was just really nice and easy to work with.
