Necessary upgrade for STI brakes, weekend warriors, or just peace of mind
I installed these for my upcoming STI brake swap on my 22 WRX, Spacing rotors, aftermarket wheels, and aftermarket lug nuts dont leave a whole lot of threads for the nuts to grab onto. You will most likely need a set of open ended lug nuts! I Enjoyed the ease of installation. It would have been nice for ARP to include a recommended torque spec for the install but I just went until the backing stopped flush with the surface. They make installing a wheel a bit easier, they look great, and they give me peace of mind knowing I have the same studs installed as most weekend racecars I've seen (coming from an aspiring weekend racer).
