Review: Gunmetal Titan Aerospace nuts and Stud conversion

Last Saturday I decided to switch my BBS center caps, while I was torquing(88ft/lbs), one of the stud(came with the BBS nut from a guy that I bought the wheels from) suddenly broke. So I decided to call Race Precision Motorsports(RPM) down in Panorama City for their 75mm stud conversion kit that they carry. The quality of the stud was sub-par if not better than the other stud kit that I previously had in my car. The MH Titan nut that were included was also superb in quality. I was running Kicsr40 black chrome, when I compared them side by side the material and quality were identical and the MH Titan nuts were a tad bit lighter than the kics and also the MH nuts are looking so fresh and the finish is pretty amazing. And also, the price you really can't beat $170 for a high quality stud kit conversion that comes with high quality and good looking nut.

So these are $170 for stud conversion only? What was the cost on the lug nuts? Just put my BBS on and the steel OEM lug nuts are pretty heavy for all 20 of them...

The quality is great on the Motorsport Hardware kits. The MH nuts look great against the diamond black LM-R

These look nice! I need to swap my studs soon as they're getting a bit of buildup on them

they do, the gunmetal match the dbk pretty close. i was hesitant at first if I want to put them on, but when it got installed I was in awe.

i watched them remove it and it looked pretty easy, they had a nut that was hammered to stud, then they used a socket wrench to remove it, looks like 17mm socket too

So are these titanium or steel lug nuts? You refer to them as titanium which for $170 I would assume not. The name is MH Titan but they are listed as steel?
