Thanks again to Pete A for organising this GB.

First pic is with a 10mm spacer on the front. 2nd and 3rd pic is the rear with a 5mm spacer. Just dropped back from a 10mm to a 5mm cause of a little rubbing.

It's nice not to need different length lug nuts for different spacers isnt it?

How much did you torque your studs down? I did 40Nm on each using the double nut method. 120Nm on the nuts themselves.

Spacers make a big difference. Looks good Edwin

Couldn't agree more. Now everytime I need to adjust my coilovers, change wheels or add or remove spacers it takes no time paired with an impact gun.

The studs were set to 30 ft/lb and the nuts at 88ft/lb so yeah same torque specs.

Studs = Race car

Was looking around for some fancy nuts for my newly stud-converted car.

There are a few types (added benefit of these 'Project KICKS' type is that they are two piece rotating base to prevent damage to wheels):
Project KICKS R26


Project KICKS R40 (Come in capped and uncapped versions)


Then there are normal open ended ones (These are Muteki SR48 Open End Tuner Lug Nuts)


I quite like the R40 capped nuts because they come in a set of 16 + 4 lock nuts + key + caps ontop to prevent dust going in. Problem is I'm having trouble finding a black set that is not a fake (dont like shadow titanium colour).



Has anyone else had experience with these sorts of things or can recommend any other brands? The R40 capped set is pretty $$$

I love the project kics. That's what I (will) have, as soon as I get back to Perth to pick up the studs (thanks for those, btw). I thought they only came in two colours though? the shadow chrome/titanium and the neo chrome? Didn't think there was a straight black option...

I have the Black Chrome Project Kics R40 and Matt Schnell 75mm studs. Love them.
Can't find any decent close up shots, but this gives a bit of an idea.

Thanks buddy, I ordered a set (not cheap at all!). I'll order the caps when I install these and confirm that the studs don't stick out from the end on my setup (no spacers).

some of the stuff on aliexpress could be genuine haha (even for replicas, they're supposedly not really dodgy)

Looking good! May I ask where you picked up your StopTech's from? They have dropped in price recently and I'm almost ready to buy.
