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?
Outmotoring has excellent, high quality products for the Mini at excellent prices and the customer service I have received from Aaron has been outstanding! Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and quick to respond. I have bought many parts from Outmotoring and they are my first choice for anything going on my Mini.
Been ordering parts for my R55 '09 baby boy and these guys are excellent when it comes to communicating. Quick and easy ordering. Will continue to order from these guys!!!
