Video: Installing wheel studs in an E36 BMW M3

Do you swap between race wheels and street wheels often? Do you run different wheels and tires for winter and summer? Do you run wheel spacers? Do you want frustration-free wheel swaps? Ditch the stock wheel bolts that the E36 came with and install some wheel studs.

The whole project can be knocked out in an hour for around $100.

I started with a set of wheel studs: Amazon

And a set of long open-end lug nuts: Amazon

Install the studs into the hubs using red thread locker and torque to 15-18 ft-lb.

Install the wheels and lug nuts.

Done. It’s that easy, and now doing wheel swaps, especially with wheel spacers, is so much easier.
