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.

Very nice! Potentially stupid question: How does one torque the bullet-nosed studs to spec? Also, any plans to offer silver studs?

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.

Thanks, David. A guide would be great.

I personally would love silver ones since the ends of most black studs get marred with wheel changes. (At least on the studs I've been using, albeit from another company.)

Since our studs are black zinc plated, they should be more durable than others and should not be marred with regular wheel changes.

Many people prefer the bullet nose because it is more aesthetically pleasing. For race cars, the bullet nose is preferred for quicker wheel changes without getting the wheel's mounting hub caught onto the edge of the studs, as it would slide on due to the rounded tips.

I'm looking for M12 5 lug kits, 75mm long as I'm not running spacers. Ideally in black. Is there a difference between the hex and bullet nose heads of it it just the ease of installing them?
Does your free shipping cover international shipping too?

The APEX bullet nose stud kit makes mounting wheels onto your car much more easy, especially when your car is used as a dual-duty track car. However, our free shipping policy states, "Free Shipping only applies to orders shipping to the 48 mainland United States." Those states excluded from free shipping: Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and international customers do not qualify for free shipping.

If you have any further questions, we would be happy to answer them or shoot us a PM.
