The 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion improves the efficiency of wheel and accessory installation by converting wheel bolts to studs. However, you still need to apply standard torque when installing the 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion to ensure the clamping force of the wheel studs and lug nuts. BONOSS will explain the precautions and torques for installing both parts of the wheel stud conversion.
How to Install 2023 Porsche 911 Wheel Studs?
The 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion is divided into wheel studs and lug nuts, the wheel studs are used to replace the wheel bolts, and the lug nuts are used to apply a sufficient clamping force to fasten the wheels. Wheel studs must be installed using a 6mm hex socket with 20Nm torque. Lug nuts will ensure the locking of the wheels, using a 19mm socket and a torque of 140Nm. For titanium lug nuts, you can increase the torque by 5N.
Should You Use Titanium 2023 Porsche 911 Wheel Stud Conversion?
Most of the 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversions are made from steel alloy material, as the manufacturer still recognizes the tensile strength of steel material. Most wheel stud conversions are rated 10.9 or higher, but lightweight does not characterize the weight. The conversion of wheel bolts makes wheel mounting easier, and it satisfies the needs of some customers on track days. However, professional drivers still demand lightweight products in pursuit of more extreme vehicle performance.
Titanium alloy material is characterized by high tensile strength, exceeding the performance of grade 10.9 wheel bolts, and even high-strength titanium exceeds the strength of many structural steel sheets. Therefore, titanium’s specific strength (strength/density) is much greater than other metal structural materials. You can manufacture high unit strength, good rigidity, and lightweight parts, such as the 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion. High thermal strength performance allows it to work up to 500 ℃, which is suitable for use in a high-temperature environment. In contrast, its excellent low-temperature performance allows it to remain in low and ultra-low-temperature environments and maintain good mechanical properties.
In contrast to chromium-plated steel and other materials, titanium has excellent corrosion resistance. It can work in humid atmospheres and seawater, where its corrosion resistance is far superior to that of stainless steel. The oxide layer formed on the surface of the titanium alloy, together with the hard anodizing technology used by BONOSS, effectively insulates the vehicle from corrosive liquids that may be encountered while driving.
The 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion’s light weight is recognized by many customers as an outstanding advantage, and its efficient conversion combined with its lightweight makes it a popular choice for mainstream customers such as professional racing and street tuning cars to pay attention to and purchase.
Do You Need Loctite on 2023 Porsche 911 Wheel Stud Conversion？
We do not recommend using Loctite as an adhesive for the 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion. We do not recommend adding any fluid to the threads. Before installing the 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion, you should clean the wheel studs of burrs and debris and make sure that the threads of the wheel studs with the thread engagement of the rotor bolt holes will create enough clamping force to tighten the wheels.
If you wish to use Loctite on a 2023 Porsche 911 wheel stud conversion, choosing the proper Loctite will reduce the probability of failure. Make sure you torque slightly more than the BONOSS recommended when installing wheel studs and lug nuts, as the Loctite on the threads may cause the torque to change.
