It's a good time to upgrade your studs
Redesigned APEX wheel studs feature an improved shoulder design to reduce stress risers and stud failure. 75mm and 90mm versions are available with a true bullet-nose race tip for faster wheel installs and a cleaner look, or with an easy to install hex head.



The Bullet Nose
Don't compromise on safety and quality to get the stud style you want. Most affordable wheel studs today only offer a hex head version. Saving a few minutes during the install is great, but most racers want a true bullet nose tip. We've brought back the bullet nose design and give you the option to pick your preference at no added cost.

Ask yourself:What looks or works best for your needs?




The Beefy Shoulder
Typical wheel studs have no shoulder to seat with the hub. Those studs are cheaper and easier to produce, but can result in new threads being cut into the stud as they are tightened. APEX's new wheels studs were engineered with a beefy, tapered shoulder design, allowing for a consistent and flat surface to secure to the hub. This feature helps eliminate stress risers that can lead to stud failure in most other designs.



Designed for the street and the track
Try and find a BMW race car that hasn't converted to wheel studs yet. They're stronger, safer, and improve pit stop times significantly. For non-races, stud conversions still make wheel installation and removal much easier at home. You no longer have to line up the holes in your wheels, spacers, and hubs before hand threading a single lug bolt through all 3 holes. Simply slide the wheel onto the studs, and let go. With lugs, an unsupported wheel will slip off the hub lip and fall onto the ground. With studs, there is enough length to float the wheel in place and in proper alignment. Sitting on the ground with your feet under the car, supporting the wheel with your feet while you try and line everything up is a thing of the past.
Extended length wheel studs like these allow for a range of spacers to be used without any additional modification. You can easily use 3, 5, 10, and 12mm spacers with our 75mm studs. For 15, 18, 20, and 25mm spacers, our 90mm studs are required to allow for enough thread engagement. Either length kit can be used without spacers just as easily. When using lug bolts with spacers you are forced to purchase a different length lug for each width spacer as any spacer. Even 3mm thick spacers are dangerous to use with the very short thread OEM BMW lug hardware. Why own a bucket full of lugs when a single set of studs can do it all?

By remaining installed, studs will put less wear on the threads of your hubs. They guarantee there is enough thread engagement, as you can see how many threads were engaged during install.

Wheel studs replace your OEM lug bolts by simply threading into your car's hub. Once installed they do not need to be removed when changing or removing wheels. Only the lug nuts are removed similar to many domestic and import vehicles.

What kit do you recommend for a 2011 135i converted to a 1M... I'll be using 18x10 ET22 Arc-8 wheels with no spacers.

For this wheel combination we would recommend using our 75mm 5-lug M12x1.5 kit, you can use these 75mm studs until you wish to bump up spacer sizes. If you wish to use a spacer that is thicker than a 15mm, you will want to move on to our 90mm kits. If you change wheels often to a track oriented set-up you will want to check out our bullet nose kit, these allow swapping wheels to the hub much quicker and easier. If not you may be interested in our hex end kit, these allow you the ability to install these studs a little bit quicker. These kits provide, your choice between of silver or black open end lug nuts.

If you would like any further information regarding our stud kits please feel free to shoot us a PM or give us a call!

I inadvertently used blue thread locker instead of your recommended red. Do I need to remove and reinstall them with the red? They have been on the car for about a week now. And have a track weekend Friday.
Thanks

We do recommend that you remove them and reinstall the studs with the red loctite. The blue ones will not keep the studs as secure and can loosen easily over time.
