UUC studs feedback?

Has anyone used these? I've read about the reviews on Vorshlag(sp?) studs, BBS studs, Turners studs...but not much input in regards to UUC...there seems to be mixed reviews on there other products...

anyone have any inputs to this specific item?

Thanks!

They supposed to be really good, I know John@BMW has them. Please ask him, he works for UUC and he'll be able to tell you more about them.

I had the 75mm studs and sold them since they were too long. They would work great with a 10-15mm spacer.

I later went with the Vorshlag 60mm studs.

The UUC studs seemed fine. They install using threadlocker and you have to jam 2 lug nuts together to torque the stud. I would recommend that you order some extra lug nuts because the ones I used to jam together got a little messed up. As I found out the hard way, its hard to find 17mm lug nuts locally.

The Vorshlag studs came with a hex key and were much easier to install than using the jam method. Only bad thing is that they are silver instead of black and they don't have the bullet nose. So you have to be a little careful when replacing the wheel.

If you use close ended lug nuts the color doesn't matter. . I also have the Vorshlag 60mm studs. I have also had the Turner ones which were difficult to install. I would go with which ever studs come in the size you desire. They are all good and will work. I prefer the Vorshlag because they are easy to install. If you do have to do the double nut method I would recommend going to a hardware store and getting two nuts instead of using lug nuts.

The silver vorshlag studs you're talking about are their old design. They sell bullet nosed studs with a hex tip. I'm running their 90mm~ studs on my E30 M3.

Yes, they discontinued them. Too bad, they are good, inexpensive studs which were perfect for most of us.
