The threads are cut on our CNC screw machine and then heat Treated by a Heat treater specializing in Aircraft titanium products.

We have processed our Titanium Hardware through a Type I anodizing process and hope you like the results.

I just wanted to add some thoughts about the Thread rolling vs Thread cutting topic:

The two methods of forming external threads can provide equivalent service in many applications. The ultimate holding power under steady load is still determined by the shear area of the thread root.

PROPERLY cut threads are extremely durable. The cutting tool and lubricants used need to produce a smooth flank and root, this will increase fatigue life significantly in highly stressed cyclical loadings. Proper radius of the root is very important for long life in such cyclical loadings. When combined with proper heat treating a cut thread is equivalent to that of a Rolled thread.

Calling out rolled threads is not a substitute for proper sizing and material selection. Heat treating after rolling is very important for attaining high strength, long cyclical loading life, and smooth torque vs clamping force. Improper rolling techniques will not produce a strong thread.

Brittleness is not a characteristic caused by differences between cutting and rolling. It is easy to mis-analyze a thread failure and attribute the failure to an incorrect cause.

I have taken the steps required to develop a product which is manufactured to the highest of standards enabling it to meet the conditions of use.

The product is Aircraft grade Ti and I have countless hours into development. While the market does have cheaper options (even in the Ti), as well as Even pricier options. I do feel that these are priced competitively.

What was the time out period on your former stud sets? From a PCA Club Race perspective.

Longevity of the studs has many factors that contribute. More often than anything people damage the threads on the studs and that results in replacing them.
If you competing in 3 or 4 CR's per season, do test and tune days as well as Open track events.... Let's say you put 60 to 80 days a season on your car. You should be changing your studs and nuts every season. Many people go several years, while others never replace them until a failure occurs.

You can use steel Wheel nuts on these.

The set includes a tube of Loctite 271, you should clean the hub threads with some degreaser prior to installation of new studs, place 2 jam nuts on stud (included), place a small strip of 271 along the stud onto the short stud threads, screw into hub until it stops, then torque to 95 ft lbs. Remove Jam nuts....

Use Titanium Nuts or Steel nuts are you would normally.
