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?
The most stylish Turbo addition you'll be able to find anywhere!
Actually spoke to an extremely professional, but moreover knowledgeable young man about my issue....fast,easy, and good....usually you can only pick two of those, all three is rare commodity these days. Well done!
