It's A Good Time To Upgrade Your Studs



Redesigned APEX wheel studs feature an improved shoulder design to reduce stress risers and stud failure. 75mm and 90mm versions are available with a true bullet-nose race tip for faster wheel installs and a cleaner look, or with an easy to install hex head.


What's New?



The Bullet Nose
Don't compromise on safety and quality to get the stud style you want. Most affordable wheel studs today only offer a hex head version. Saving a few minutes during the install is great, but most racers want a true bullet nose tip. We've brought back the bullet nose design and give you the option to pick your preference at no added cost.


The Beefy Shoulder
Typical wheel studs have no shoulder to seat with the hub. Those studs are cheaper and easier to produce, but can result in new threads being cut into the stud as they are tightened. APEX's new wheels studs were engineered with a beefy, tapered shoulder design, allowing for a consistent and flat surface to secure to the hub. This feature helps eliminate stress risers that can lead to stud failure in most other designs. This feature helps eliminate stress risers that can lead to stud failure in most other designs, and will serve as a visual indicator that your studs have been properly secured during the installation process.

Lug Nuts Included
No need to order hardware separately. All studs are finished in black, and lug nuts are available in either a black or silver finish.



Studs vs. Standard Bolts



Less Wear
Wheel studs replace your OEM lug bolts by simply threading into your car's hub. Once installed they do not need to be removed when changing or removing wheels, which preserves the threads on your car's hubs. They also guarantee proper thread engagement, as you can see how many threads were engaged during install.

Less Time
No more time spent trying to line up lug holes while holding wheels up with your feet. Studs make it easy to slide the wheel on and leave it there while grabbing the hardware. Lug nuts easily slide on and off the end of the stud, and can be started by hand with little-to-no effort.

Use Any Spacer
All spacers require extended-length hardware to be used safely. With our extended-length studs, you are no longer required to buy a bucket full of various-length bolts for use with different size spacers. Our 75mm studs support up to 12mm spacers, and our 90mm studs support up to 25mm spacers.
