► APEX | Redesigned and Reinforced Wheel Studs



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.

What's New?



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.


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. This feature helps eliminate stress risers that can lead to stud failure in most other designs, and will serve as a visual indicator that your studs have been properly secured during the installation process.

Lug Nuts Included
No need to order hardware separately. All studs are finished in black, and lug nuts are available in either a black or silver finish.


Studs vs. Standard Bolts



Less Wear
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, which preserves the threads on your car's hubs. They also guarantee proper thread engagement, as you can see how many threads were engaged during install.

Less Time
No more time spent trying to line up lug holes while holding wheels up with your feet. Studs make it easy to slide the wheel on and leave it there while grabbing the hardware. Lug nuts easily slide on and off the end of the stud, and can be started by hand with little-to-no effort.

Use Any Spacer
All spacers require extended-length hardware to be used safely. With our extended-length studs, you are no longer required to buy a bucket full of various-length bolts for use with different size spacers. Our 75mm studs support up to 12mm spacers, and our 90mm studs support up to 25mm spacers.


Available Sizes & Options



M12x1.5mm 5 lug kits with 75 and 90mm lengths and Hex or Bullet Nose tips. Silver and black finishes are available

M14x1.25mm 5 lug kits with 75 and 90mm lengths and Hex or Bullet Nose tips. Silver and black finishes are available

M12x1.5mm 4 lug kits for E30s with 75 and 90mm lengths and Hex or Bullet Nose tips. Silver and black finishes are available

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?

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