If you aren't tracking you'll be fine with any of the regular studs.

i've used turner studs in the past. i liked them.

i'm currently on apex studs and i don't like them. i have had zero failures with studs so far, but the apex studs showed some corrosion early on. i can't recommend them.

my next set will be from MSI.

i sort of ignored that part since it isn't relative to studs.

My apex studs have been on for about 4 years now. They rusted at the tips but I painted them black to hide it. Other than that, no issues.

Sheesh, I feel like I'm pushing it with two years of use... these are "consumable" parts guys.

Did you guys put anything on the lugs help with rust?

I live in a rainy place ...

The instructions said put w40 on nuts that's it.

I read some people say keep the lugs clean but daily car wash enough or I need do anything else? 🤷🏽
