  1. What’s the difference between wheel bolts and wheel studs? Most factory cars come with the form either wheel studs (such as Japanese-made cars) or wheel bolts (such as European-made cars). So, what’s the exact difference between wheel studs and wheel bolts? Wheel studs with lug nuts are mostly used on Japanese-made cars (such as Honda, Toyota). The studs are mounted in the hub and protrude beyond the brake rotor hat. ........ Find more from the link (https://www.bonoss.com/why-use-wheel-stud-conversion-kit-instead-of-wheel-bolts-cai.html)
  2. Do you know what is Stud conversion? For one thing, it is easier to replace the wheel hub. German car owners, especially those who have disassembled and assembled wheels by themselves, will have a deep understanding: when installing wheels, there will be an embarrassing situation that it is difficult to align the holes, especially in rainy weather, high speed side and other harsh environments. It is maddening to say. German cars generally use bolts to fasten the hub, while Japanese cars extend the studs on the wheel spacer and fasten the hub with nuts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPczV1U7NKw Although the effect is the same, German cars need disassembly tool. In addition, today’ s wheels are getting bigger and bigger. 19-inch and 20-inch , which is difficult to operate. Japanese cars have several studs on the hub and put on the wheels. It is easy to tighten the nut afterwards. Therefore, the conversion studs can make the European car "transform" into the form of the Japanese car, so it is called "conversion". The effect of conversion studs: 1. The process of installing are more convenient, just hang the rims on the studs, and the nuts can be easily tightened; 2. It can support various general nuts of M14x1.5, such as steel nuts, aluminum alloy nuts and titanium alloy nuts; 3. With wheel spacer of various thicknesses, the wheel track can be widened, the ET value of the rim can be corrected, and the brake can be dodged; It would be a good choice for German cars to install the bonoss forged titanium exposed stud conversion.
  3. Take a example of install wheel spacers from BONOSS company on Tesla. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5KKsBOM9y8&t=62s When we modify our cars, which keywords will appear in your mind, wheel spacers? bodykit? hellaflush? wheelhub? exhaust? turbo charger? rim? etc... Gradually, modifying cars has changed from love to a popular culture. The modifying culture vary from region to region. The high horsepower of American cars, the hellaflush of Japanese , and the ECU calibration of European . In the communication, we found that modified parts are constantly changing. Local upgrades and diversified functions meet more needs of modified players. I heard a car product that has become very popular recently. Although everyone may have their own likes and dislikes, I will analyze this product from my own perspective.It’s the product from BONOSS company: BONOSS Forged Active Cooling Wheel Spacers (Formerly BLOXsport). Its new function: Active Cooling, it’s a new function, for a long time, no matter who install the wheel spacers, the main function is to widen the wheelbase to improve the handling, or to install wheel spacers when refitting the wheel hub and brake system. But the function is still single so that I can't help thinking about how to buy the wheel spacers in a reasonable price with additional value. So how is the function of active cooling work? According the introduction, the design principle can make use of the rotation of the wheel spacers to allow the external cold air to flow efficiently and continuously inside the wheel spacers to take away heat. In terms of the principle, it achieves the target that active cool the brake system, improve braking efficiency and reduce the risk of driving. Of course, there are many more about this product I haven’t mentioned, including its quality, other design details, about these, you can leave your questions or opinions below.
