Default M14 Stud Conversion

Something I haven't seen beat to death yet that I am considering converting over is to M14 studs. It looks like rogue sells a tool to do the conversion. I fully understand that over tightening wheels and usage will result in the need for new studs.

Any real world usage examples out there where track rats are seeing increased longevity vs the m12 stud?

Default Re: M14 Stud Conversion

That's a really good question. IMO, it's not the repeated tightening that stresses these studs (unless one over tightens), it's the heat cycling. And I'm not sure a 14mm bolt that's been made brittle from heat cycling is significantly stronger than a 12mm bolt that's been made brittle from heat cycling??

I'd personally be scared to drill and tap the rears while on the car. It'd be a super PIA to F those up and have to replace them.

Yeah, I'd just stay with M12 and get the MSI NASCAR studs if you want something a little stronger. Turner sells them.
