Whats the benefits of doing a stud conversion?

I think one reason its low on the list of things i want to do.. i've never heard of Lug bolts breaking. but i have heard of studs breaking. Im sure it won't happen very easily, if at all, but theres always that chance and I'm sure theres always that chance with my current lugs as well.

Way easier to mount on wheels. I've heard of a LOT of extended lugs bolts breaking. I decided to go with studs because of the ease of use, plus if you get high quality studs such as the Vorshlag studs, and you don't overtorque them, it's very unlikely for them to break. That said, if you're putting it up to track conditions (a lot of extreme heat cycling), you should be replacing preventatively every few seasons.

easier to change wheels and spacers, better seating and balancing of the wheel, stronger. The main reason I am converting because I am running a few different spacers and I want a locking nut on my wheels. People with spacers cannot use a type of rad lock bolt with spacers. I also find it easier to switch spacers out. Tracking is next

I ordered vorshlag studs. Do you know the torque spec on the studs and muteki's lugs by chance?

Red loctite. 20-30 lb/ft on the studs. Then attach wheels and torque down lugs to 80 lb/ft. remove lugs/wheels and ensure stud tightness. Reattach wheels. Do it again after a few heat cycles.
