What is a stud conversion kit? How to stud conversion? Are stud conversions safe? Wheel stud conversion has existed for multiple decades. They are a kind of special studs with both ends threaded, which convert your lug bolts fastening method to lug nuts. Many European cars (such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Volkswagen…) use lug bolts to secure the wheels. A lug bolt features a threaded stem attached to a conical/ball seat that matches the wheel insert. Unlike lug nuts, lug bolts fasten the wheel and brake rotor directly onto the hub. This makes changing the brake rotor easy but an added hassle of lining up the wheel and brake rotor when mounting wheels/tires. Wheel stud conversion offers an easy way to align the wheel when mounting. They make it more fluent to change wheels and save much time for you. It is a simple but high effective upgrade for your car.
What Are the Advantages of Wheel Stud Conversion?
Equipping your vehicle with the correct lug bolts is very important to ensure the safe and reliable mounting of the wheels. If you’ve ever changed your stock wheels to aftermarket wheels, you’d know that there are various types of lug bolts. You may even find it hard when realizing your old lug bolts don’t fit on your new wheels. If you have added wheel spacers, to meet proper thread engagement, the thread length of the wheel bolts should equal the length of stock bolts plus the thickness of the spacer, which means you need extended wheel bolts. Then wheel stud conversion is compatible with both ball and conical seat lug nuts, which is suitable for most factory or aftermarket wheels. They usually come with longer threaded stems. The lug nuts’ thread length is capable to adjust to get proper fasten, which allows for the safe use of different thickness wheel spacers. You don’t have to change to another set of extended wheel bolts. Aesthetically, they penetrate the wheels, which provides a sporty and fierce look.
