if your studs can't deal with impact guns, u got some wrong studs, buddy!
My father had done his own maintenance (brakes, wheel bearings et al) on his vehicles --mostly Lincolns and Fords. We didn't have air tools or a torque wrench. He'd use a heavy duty cross wrench socket tool to tighten the lug nuts as tight as possible. So much torque that he actually welded rebar onto the X wrench to keep the shafts from twisting. I'm sure it was wayyyyyyy too much torque but even then, we never broke a stud or stripped a nut on those inferior Ford parts.

Add me to the list of people with broken Apex Pro Series studs. I see I'm not the only one who limped a car in on 2 studs.

This is after 4 DE weekends, no wrecks, 17ft lbs into hub, 94 ft lbs for the wheels.

Emails to them have thus far gone unanswered. (Update- emails were replied to. I missed the fact that they were out for two weeks.)

Emails went unanswered because as mentioned on the website we were shut down for 2 weeks. I will reply to your emails that I see now. Also, please be fair, most of the posts on RL in this thread and others about broken studs are from other manufacturers. They all break under certain conditions which I will discuss with you via email.

Fair enough, I've been on the site multiple times and could have missed that.

a couple years ago tried to buy some studs from apexcomp (not to be confused with clarke from apex racing...) and got literally NO help when a couple questions on fitment were asked. Called MSI and they were super helpful, bought from them. Their products are on all my cars.

Looking to get some wheel studs myself but I have an interesting problem to solve. The current wheels I have use tuner lug bolts (Avant Garde Ruger Mesh). The wheels I get for the track will most likely not require tuner lug bolts. Is there a wheel stud that can handle both wheels? Is it just an issue of getting 2 sets of lug nuts (tuner and "standard")? ..or am I up poopoo creek here?

Any help would be great!

Only the lug nuts touch your wheels (once tightened).
So get yourself a set of proper 14mm radiused lug nuts and your track wheels will fit.

Slightly late reply/request - link to where to get them?

The last thing I want is to have a horror story from what I've read about the rennline studs (yikes).

Thanks!

Google "H&R 1454005". Tons of places sell them. These are 40mm which works with every wheel and will accommodate 7mm spacers if you need.
