Spacers and Studs

I installed 12mm/15mm spacers and 82mm studs.

Spacers help fill in the wheel well and there are no vibrations.

The studs come with 5mm allen bullet tips for easy intallation - Torq'd 16 ft/lbs with red loctite and nuts were Torq'd to 86 ft/lbs

The 82mm studs were perfect as they allow up to 20mm spacers and they don't stick out too much.

The studs were from Motorsport Hardware

http://motorsport-hardware.mybigcomm...nversion-kits/

Very good deal on studs kits.

Here are some photos.

I had two pairs. One set of Macht Schnell and one set of Turner Motorsport. I decided to keep the Turners because they better engineered.

Just wondering if the issue in this video is valid. will there be a gap between the zcp wheels and the H&R spacers?

From my knowledge, that only occurs with 10mm spacers since there is not enough spacer thickness to properly fit the wheel hub. Go 12mm or wider.

Nice! I ran stud kits on my M3's and on my current modded X5. I'm using 90mm studs though.

You shouldn't. It'll just depend on how low your car is.
