Convert from bolts to nuts? E91

any recommendations for how to do this?

44mm seems kinda short
I have a set of these in 90mm http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...conversion-kit
works great. I run spacers so i needed the longer ones. But you can roll by with the 75mm without spacers

I would not recommend getting something like a stud conversion on eBay.

You will have to get the studs to fit your rims you want. Maybe I am old school but I like the studs with nuts better than bolts.

Got my 75mm studs from EAS - I ordered the studs individually, along with a set of fancy nuts for my aftermarket wheels (and 10mm spacers for the front). I'm very happy with the results.
