Two mistakes right there buddy. I use the white lithium grease from advance auto parts and also torque using a torque wrench with aluminum lugs on stock studs. Never broke even one (knock on wood).No, I don't lube the lugs. What do you use? just a silicon spray or lithium grease or something?
i don't use an impact or a torque to put them on. Just doing it by hand until it feels right, but don't he-man it. They always break when taking the lugs off, not putting them on. I always assumed it due to all the pressure on the lugs while cornering at the track.
waltezee - thx, I didn't know ARP made wheel studs. They're stuff is quality, so one down We're a 20m x 1.5, right? Via summit, I see Moroso, Wilwood and Moser also make some. Probably can't go wrong with any of those.
Any comments on the spacers? I know Touge Factory can hook me up with a set of new rings.. they actually have a custom set made for this wheel on the Evo X. but I've heard the Kicks and Echiban spacers might get around the ring wear issues. Anyone running spacers without rings on an NT03+M?
