Pros:
  • Look good / aggressive
  • Allow flexibility in spacer size without having to buy extended lugs
  • Last longer than lugs when you make frequent wheel changes

Cons:
  • Harder to install wheels - I know everyone says that they make it easier! I find them harder to use because you have to line up the lug holes with the studs. Lining up the wheel holes with the studs while holding a heavy wheel in the air isn't "easy" IMO. On a car without studs, You can place the wheel on the hub and turn the wheel to line up the lug holes while it's balancing on the hub.
  • More difficult to replace than standard lugs (studs are put on with lock-tight and difficult to remove).
