I would most likely be down for a set of 12MM spacers with the extended lug bolts in Black.

Added to the list.

I'm assuming those who are after the studs want the install kit too right? It's a couple bucks, comes with red loctite and a 5mm hex key.

- Stud conversions (various lengths)
- Lug nut replacements (also various lengths)
- Wheel spacers
- Replacement lock nuts

APEX never discount wheel accessories, however, because I asked nicely, they are willing to offer us a small discount of 5% (nothing massive but still something) if we can get 10 or more sets of wheel accessories happening. We'll obviously save on the shipping costs as well. I'll have all the parts sent to me and I'll distribute them out separately once I receive them.

As the prices are in USD, I think the best method of payment to me would be in USD to my PayPal account. However, lets organize the numbers first, then we can process the moula.

For a list of available accessories, please see the link below:

01 - PeteA - 75mm BMW Stud Conversion 5 Lug Kit (Black) + optional install kit
02 - froop - 75mm BMW Stud Conversion 5 Lug Kit (Black) + optional install kit?

04 - KD135i - 75mm BMW Stud Conversion 5 Lug Kit (Black) + optional install kit?
05 - JB4135 - 75mm BMW Stud Conversion 5 Lug Kit (Black) + optional install kit?

I've replaced GJA003 with myself on the above quote. My stupid body shop lost my studs so now I'm stuck with lugs and loctite and nothing to install them on :P I think even if we don't hit 10 people, this may still be worthwhile as I messaged apex last night and the shipping for me alone would have been $54 on a $100 order!

Indeed. I'll close this out this evening and shoot David from APEX an email as soon as I have final numbers. I will PM each of you this evening for email addresses.

Hi Cure86, could you please point me to these I'm not sure what you're after here. I am assuming you're after 20 of the following studs sold individually?

Has anyone done a stud conversion and used closed lug nuts? If so, what length studs and lug nuts? I've seen shorter studs ranging from about 45-65mm and lug nuts that are 35mm long - the shorter the better as I don't particularly want the chariot look. But I also want to make sure the nuts are threaded on enough. Wheel spacers won't be used.

I don't want to hijack the thread but, I'm curious to know what open ended lug nuts you are all going to use with these extenders?

I have a set of the 75mm apex studs at home, yet to be put on (i prefer not to use the supplied nuts)

Guys,

Reached out to APEX today for an itemized costing + shipping. I have asked each of your for email addresses. One of you remains, if you haven't responded to my PM, please do so.

Hi guys,

Invoice has come through. APEX guys discounted us even though we didn't quite meet the 10. Very nice of them

I'll reach out to each of you via email dictating how we can proceed with payments.

We basically ended up saving the full shipping cost of about 50-60 bucks.
