FS: Motorsport Hardware 75mm Stud Conversion with Black Conical Lug Nuts

I purchased a full Motorsport Hardware Stud Conversion several months ago. They are 75mm 12x1.5 Bullet Nose Track/Race Studs with Black Conical Lug Nuts.

Out of the 20 race studs, I only used 10 of them. So 10 are used. 10 are new.

Out of the 20 lug nuts, I used all 20 of them.

I am selling them because I ran into some issues torquing down the lug nuts. At first I thought it was from improper installation, so I took off 10 of the used studs. I replaced them with OE Lug Bolts. I still ran into issues torquing down the lug nuts. This indicated to me that the Motorsport Hardware Stud Conversion was not the problem. After cleaning out the wheel hub threading and reinstalling the OE Lug Bolts, everything seems to be torquing down perfectly. Thus, I believe the underlying cause of all of this was due to dirty threading, not allowing both the studs and lug bolts to torque down properly. I would have reinstalled these, but I need longer studs to accommodate a large spacer for my winter wheels.

I cleaned off the used studs and lug nuts the best I can and none of the threading looks to be stripped or warped in anyway. They have been on the car since mid-August, so they studs and lug nuts still have a long life time ahead of them. I am fairly confident that the used studs are still useable. The used lug nuts are definitely still properly operable.

Despite that, I am willing to just sell the kit for roughly 50% of the cost of a new kit, essentially just the price of the brand new 10 studs and shipping charges.

I will post pics of the used studs and lug nuts later. I am currently letting them take a bath in some CRC Brakleen to assure cleanest condition possible.
