Converting your car to studs as opposed to wheel bolts has several benefits but the most important are the following:
Safer wheel retention - We often see after as little as 15 minutes on track the standard Renault wheel bolts can come lose causing steering vibration and potentially the wheel coming off the car! The excessive heat generated on track can cause expansion of the wheel and hub assemblies, which during cooling contract reducing the tightness of the wheel bolts. You will notice that all competition vehicles are fitted with stud and nut wheel retention.
Speed of wheel changing - With studs as a guide replacing a wheel is quick and easy, this is particularly helpful in pit stop environments or indeed in the paddock on your track day.
100mm - studs are suitable for vehicles using large wheel spacers or wheels with larger hub mountings
82mm - studs are suitable for vehicles using small-medium wheel spacers
68mm - studs are a direct replacement for standard use wheel bolts and up to 20mm spacers
Studs supplied are 10.9 Grade Strength Class and bullet tipped to avoid cross threading
Studs should be torqued to 30NM into the hub and wheel nuts to OEM specifications.
Each kit is supplied with a tube of Loctite 270 Thread locker.
