ARP extended wheel studs

Are you tired of broken, or stripped wheel studs? That moment you realize you only have four and half holding your new wheel on. That gut wrenching feeling that more will be breaking at any time. Aftermarket wheel studs are one of the most over looked modifications. Over time your current wheel studs will be subjected to repeated torque cycles, laterally forces from cornering, thousands of heat cycles, and the possibility of improper torque. Most aftermarket studs will exceed the tensile strength of the factory 10 fold. Experts in the aftermarket fastener industry are ARP. They produce a 8740 chromoly steel, cadmium plated, tensile strength of 200,000 psi replacement, to ensure your safety during harsh laterally driving situations. Also ARP wheel studs have a “bullet” end to ensure you do not cross thread your lug nuts. Found here This is experienced in hard cornering, and launches.

Like most performance modifications, supporting modifications are recommended to ensure safety. That way you can drive with confidence ripping through the canyons on those weekend cruises, or just whipping around some corners on your daily drive. For those more track focused, there is now a 1.5 thread option instead of the standard 1.25. So what does that mean.. well it means the threads are further apart and not as fine. Giving you more bite for when you torque down you lugs. Learn more
