I just ordered the BW Premium Race Studs. I was wondering if you were actually able to torque down those guys between 50-80 ft lbs.
I have heard of some not even being able to get close to it.
I also purchased the two locking nuts they sell for a couple bucks so I don't end up shearing the lug nuts.

I swap wheels all the time and just use a lug guide. I recently replaced all my lugs with new OE and I'm glad I didn't have to remove and reinstall 20 studs
I use OE Lug Nuts on the E90 M3 and studs on the E46 M3...becauseracecar..........not!
