Hey all

Where can I get better wheel studs from? For my track car, r33?

I'm sick of breaking wheel studs?

And also I run rpf1s and I keep elongating the holes of the rim to. So after decent wheel nuts to.

Help??

Only ever heard of mickey mouse tyre shops breaking wheel studs! How much power are you putting through?

Any steel wheel nuts should do. Aluminium nuts are not approved (for anything really).

Putting around 450kws at the rear. And it's when I run full slicks. They brake

I use Nismo ones and haven't had any issues, after I broke 2x sets of project mu's (part my fault, part workshops faults)

From memory fronts and rears are different sized knurls.

How much torque are you doing these things up with as that is usually the source of the problem.

Also I use the steel version of these:

The long version to clear the longer Nismo nuts which suit the offset of the rim (The offsets are changed by Rays by machining more/less material from the wheel hub)

And prior to that the project mu steel nuts but they rusted as the open ends stayed wet.

What material are your nuts and are you sure the nut is not bottoming out on the stud and not seating the rim properly?

Also I use a torque bar with a gun to do them up, this sort of thing:

Supercheap have them for $45 ea. Probably get 20% off on Straya day. They are a special order anyway.

There are a number of brands of them.  Surprisingly they are accurate enough for wheel nuts and such.  I got mine from KC Tools but the usual suspects sell them too.
