    That sounds so dirty...

    But with just two of these alignment studs, you don't even have to deal with the downsides of running studs permanently.

    Perhaps there was some double meaning there.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    What are the downsides of running studs? I’m genuinely curious cause it’s something I want to do down the line...

    The big downside for me was the need to replace them every so often. They're too expensive for that kind of upkeep IMO.
    Also, mine rusted like crap and were really hard to remove after just a year. Though, at the time, I didn't know there were titanium ones available. Not sure if you have to replace those every couple of years as well though.

    Gotcha. So they’re replacement rate is faster than traditional lug bolts?

    For those who “street drive” their cars I’m sure you can run with studs installed much longer than people who take their cars on the track.

    I also prefer having studs installed as they make mounting your wheels so much easier...

    @san the only real drawback is that you will always have rust on the exposed threads, nothing you can realistically do to prevent that. So the only way to avoid the rust issue is by going with titanium studs, which carry a price tag around $250 a set ($12 ea).

    I don't have any rust on the threads, just in the allen socket hole on the end but my car rarely sees rain and never sees snow or salt
