It's a good time to upgrade your studs
Redesigned APEX wheel studs feature an improved shoulder design to reduce stress risers and stud failure. 75mm and 90mm versions are available with a true bullet-nose race tip for faster wheel installs and a cleaner look, or with an easy to install hex head.



The Bullet Nose
Don't compromise on safety and quality to get the stud style you want. Most affordable wheel studs today only offer a hex head version. Saving a few minutes during the install is great, but most racers want a true bullet nose tip. We've brought back the bullet nose design and give you the option to pick your preference at no added cost.

Ask yourself:What looks or works best for your needs?




The Beefy Shoulder
Typical wheel studs have no shoulder to seat with the hub. Those studs are cheaper and easier to produce, but can result in new threads being cut into the stud as they are tightened. APEX's new wheels studs were engineered with a beefy, tapered shoulder design, allowing for a consistent and flat surface to secure to the hub. This feature helps eliminate stress risers that can lead to stud failure in most other designs.



Designed for the street and the track
Try and find a BMW race car that hasn't converted to wheel studs yet. They're stronger, safer, and improve pit stop times significantly. For non-races, stud conversions still make wheel installation and removal much easier at home. You no longer have to line up the holes in your wheels, spacers, and hubs before hand threading a single lug bolt through all 3 holes. Simply slide the wheel onto the studs, and let go. With lugs, an unsupported wheel will slip off the hub lip and fall onto the ground. With studs, there is enough length to float the wheel in place and in proper alignment. Sitting on the ground with your feet under the car, supporting the wheel with your feet while you try and line everything up is a thing of the past.
Extended length wheel studs like these allow for a range of spacers to be used without any additional modification. You can easily use 3, 5, 10, and 12mm spacers with our 75mm studs. For 15, 18, 20, and 25mm spacers, our 90mm studs are required to allow for enough thread engagement. Either length kit can be used without spacers just as easily. When using lug bolts with spacers you are forced to purchase a different length lug for each width spacer as any spacer. Even 3mm thick spacers are dangerous to use with the very short thread OEM BMW lug hardware. Why own a bucket full of lugs when a single set of studs can do it all?

By remaining installed, studs will put less wear on the threads of your hubs. They guarantee there is enough thread engagement, as you can see how many threads were engaged during install.

Wheel studs replace your OEM lug bolts by simply threading into your car's hub. Once installed they do not need to be removed when changing or removing wheels. Only the lug nuts are removed similar to many domestic and import vehicles.

The installation is done with the Double-Nut method, in which you can use a 17mm socket if you are using 17mm nuts to properly torque the studs down. We will work on creating a visual guide to better portray the installation process in the near future. We do not currently have any plans for silver studs, but if there is enough demand, we may do special production runs for them in the future.

While this is a great product, it would be nice to see you sell the studs as as set (not only individually or with the lug nuts) for people such as myself who are planning on running aftermarket lugnuts.

(20) 75MM studs at $5.99 each = $120
(20) 75MM studs + (20) lug nuts = $105

You are correct. We currently do not offer a discount price for just a set of studs without nuts. Our kit discount pricing for complete sets including APEX nuts.

The prices you see for kits on our site this month are a special sale price and not the normal price, so just studs will look even more expensive right now. A 75mm kit including black nuts is typically $124.99. But this month to promote the new design, they are on sale for $20 off the set + free shipping.

To clarify, our 75mm studs are not $5.99 each. They are $4.99 each or $99.80 for a set of 20, which is still $25 less than the cost of a full kit when they are not on sale.

The promotional pricing for complete kits ends on Oct. 31st. Because it includes free shipping, I would recommend the purchase of a complete kit to receive discounted shipping vs. paying shipping for buying the studs individually.

Thanks for your feedback.

I didn't see it mentioned: Are the threads rolled or machined?

We believe that the threads are rolled, but we are awaiting confirmation from our manufacturer for you.

Our studs do indeed have rolled threads as we have initially thought, confirmed from the manufacturer.

Yes, that is correct. The e9x M3 uses the M12x1.5 thread pitch for the stud conversion kits.
