No, not all Subaru lug nuts are the same. There are various wheel nuts for Subaru in the market. Most Subaru vehicles use steel wheel nuts. The most common thread sizes that are used by Subaru cars are M12x1.25 and M12x1.5. Basically, the thread sizes of the lug nuts will vary based on the wheel studs. Whereas, the correct seat types will depend on the actual wheel. The Subaru lug nuts are threaded into the wheel studs, with the lug’s seats directly touching the wheels.

At this point, let’s take a look at all the different types of Subaru lug nuts to make a wise decision about which variation is best for your particular requirement. When changing to new aftermarket alloy rims, conical seat wheel nuts are probably the type that you’re going to come across most often.

Are Titanium Subaru Lug Nuts Better?

Indeed, quality Titanium Subaru lug nuts are ideal for better performance. This type of lug nut provides far better corrosion resistance. Titanium wheel nuts are valued because of their high tensile strength to weight ratio. In simple words, for the same sizes, Titanium lug nuts are much lighter than steel ones. Each BONOSS Titanium Subaru wheel nut weight is about 34g, and the whole set will save several pounds of weight. Many racing enthusiasts will use Titanium Subaru lug nuts for reducing the vehicle weight.

Besides, Titanium maintains its strength at elevated temperatures. Even at extreme temperatures up to 400 to 500°C, they maintain great performance. That’s primarily why it is used in the aerospace field. A thin oxide (TiO2, titania) layer spontaneously forms cover on the surface to protect these BONOSS Titanium Subaru lug nuts against rust or corrosion. They are considered to be one of the easiest and quickest items that bring your car to higher performance. However, they may be a little expensive. If you are running a limited budget, then BONOSS forged 50BV30 steel Subaru lug nuts will be a better option.
