16 x stud and nuts to convert your MINI from bolts to studs.
These screw into your hub with an allen-key. Essential in saving time for track use when regularly removing wheels, or for general ease of maintenance. All studs are made from 10.9 steel.
Please note, these are supplied as singles to allow you to mix sizes, front and back, if required.
A good quality thread lock must be used when installing these. We recommend Loctite 270, 271, 2700 or 2701, available to buy here.
Open ended wheel nuts are also required.
Length - Hub/Threaded/End
68mm - 15mm/40mm/13mm
75mm - 15mm/47mm/13mm
82mm - 15mm/54mm/13mm
90mm - 15mm/62mm/13mm
The thickness of the brake disc and wheel is approx 20mm. Subtract this from the threaded length of the stud to determine the amount left for spacers and nuts. Note that the end of the studs are unthreaded.
Please note the black nuts are not "show quality", due to the painted / powder-coated finish, and how they are packaged from the manufacturer. Chips and blemishes may be present.
Please note that the locking wheel nut key socket has a closed end, which can hit the end of the stud if you're running long studs. A solution to this is to run shorter studs, or by drilling a hole in the end of the key to allow the stud to pass through.
Please note that late, but not all, R53 cars require the R56 size studs, so require the bigger nuts. Please check your car by removing and measuring a wheel bolt - it will either be M12 (12mm) or M14 (14mm).

Please note that these studs are classed as "track car" items, and due to the sheer volume that they are made, packaged and shipped in, marks and blemishes are normal. Some studs may have small variances between each other, especially due to large batches being mixed. We will do our best to ensure all studs are the same, but this cannot be guaranteed.
