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 bought these thinking that they might be cheaply made, but I was really surprised. Instead, I read on the box that they were made in Germany; hence, the reason for the high quality. If you buy these wheel center caps, you will not be disappointed. They are very high-quality.
After buying LED Rear Tail Lights: GREY Union Jack: R56/7/8/9, one stopped working just after a year. These aren't cheap, and they should last more than a year. Since I purchased them over the 12 month mark, they are not covered under warranty. :( Customer service (Aaron) did work with me to get a new one at a discounted cost so I am thankful for that. So glad I purchased these from Outmotoring!
