Will this work with an E82? These are pretty neat. If so, consider me very interested and a potential buyer.

You coming to Toys For Tots, might by them off from you then if you bring them. I can't help but get all excited over some lug studs, lol. Definitely beats OEM hands down. Who did you buy them from? WheelSTO?

PS-Are they new (fresh out of the box) or have they been used? What torque do you use to apply them, is Loctite required? What type of tools (i.e. sockets) are needed to fit these?

Yes, everything is brand new.

I'm don't know how many LB to torque the studs, but I will find out for you.

Tools:

Allen socket for the studs, not sure about the size.

I think 17mm sockets for the BBS Lug key.

A torque wrench.

you need a hex bit. my studs were 7/16 hex bit i think.. i don't remember.

you need to use red loctite, and its not by ft lbs, you have to visually check the back of the hub and make sure the stud is flush with it. you can't torque a stud in an open hole. its just not possible.

Would switching to lug studs from bolts be more of a hastle than it would be a blessing? Can anyone give me the pros and cons of both setups? Not sure if I will want to buy these if they are only going to cause me headache. I do really want these, but I'd like to be more knowledgeable with my decision.

Studs pros-
-lighter than bolts depending on your studs and nuts
-if for some reason your bolts are lose, your rim would come right off (if you have studs, it will still come off, but might give you enough time to notice)
-fast rim change
-nicer since there's more nut choices
cons-
-it's not a snap on process, you will have to loctite it

the studs should be torqued to 15-20lbs if I remembered correctly and nuts should be 80-90lbs. Those are the specs I followed, might be different for you but idk. I've never had a problem with studs.

Ricky also did a stud conversion, PM him to see if he could help you set it to the proper torque spec.

After talking to the distributor of the wheels I am getting I won't be able to buy these lugs/studs/nuts from you. If I were staying stock these would be a very attractive option, but since I plan on fitting wider rubber in the future the lugs will be too short and I won't be able to fit any spacers when/if needed. Bump for a great product that is quite rare. Anyone who plans on staying stock or running no spacers should consider this kit.

Lugs is not a problem, you just need longer studs if you are getting spacers.
My wheels are F: 20x9 offset +8 R: 20x10 offset +18 and these studs and lugs will fit without a problem.
