What I forgot!

In addition, a rear window (Polycarbonat)
will be installed. This is 40% lighter than the originals.

Really impressed with everything you've done, awesome work!

On the picture below, it shows two different hubs, did you replace your hubs and studs or is that a different car? If you did replace them, can you tell me what hubs you use?

Thanks for the words of praise ....your camaro is awesome

The camaro pictured belongs to my friend/dealer. For me, all 4 hubs are provided with other studs. In the hubs are also each 4 "pockets" milled. The goal is to save weight and thus move less extent. Also, very light but firm nuts are used.

That is a cool idea of milling pockets! Can you please find out what studs he used?

Thanks,

The studs are much more stable, by Andre Hung can not be set at an angle the wheel nut, the aluminum wheel nuts are lighter than 1kg, the heat can be more readily dissipated by the milled pockets moves from the brake disc on the hub to the camp........

Data for the aluminum wheel nuts.

Total length 27mm
Wrench size 19mm
Kegelbund

The small and compact design, these are the lightest wheel nuts on the aftermarket.
