View Full Version : How to install studs

08-09-2010, 08:58 PM
Hey guys, I ordered some rotiform studs and they came in today, and needless to say, they look awesome. I cannot wait to install these things! However, I have a couple of questions. Is red loc-tite necessary, or can I get away with blue? I just have a bit of fear in case one ever has to be removed. Also, what is the install procedure for these? I was half expected the allen head at the end, but as this is not the case, should I just double nut them on? How much do i torque them down to?

Thanks a lot. You guys have a great/helpful staff, and having the warehouse in CA makes for great shipping times. I would love to order a set of rims from you, but its a bit out of my price range at the moment. Maybe in a year or so we will be in contact again. :devillook

Use red. Even tho they're screwed on, just use red to be safe. Better safe then sorry right? And yeah, double nut them on. I just tightened mine down until it couldn't go in any further.

Mine lasted about a whole 6 months maybe until the stud and nut were completely stripped. Don't use air tools.

I dont have air tools, so that shouldnt be an issue. How hard is it to pull them back out after they have been torqued down with red loc-tite? I just want to be sure that they can be removed when necessary.

Well, fairly easy. Actually scary easy. When the stud and nut were stripped, I just gave it a quick zip with the impact gun and it came off.

Double nut them with a drop of red loctite on the short end (hub side) :alright

then torque wheels as usual!

Sounds good. I got spacers on the way, so I probably wont be putting the studs on until they come in, but the car should look pretty hot soon.
