Picked this kit up on clearance and did a quick install. Installation time appox 1hr. Easy installation.

Likes:
14x1.25 nuts can be hard to find so this is a steal for an entire kit.
Threads on nuts start at the end and continue for 3/4 of the length giving increased thread contact patch.

Considerations:
This is the first time I've done a stud conversion. I thought 60mm would be too long but once installed, I think I would prefer a longer version. I would also prefer one that had the bullet speed loader end to it. But for the price this is a hard contender. I do like the fact that none of the threads are exposed from the end of the nut thus cutting down on rust/thread damage.

Why on clearance? The studs may have some variances in the hex and/or finish but it does not affect the functionality in any way
There may be some inconsistencies with this particular hex so we will be including (2) nuts for installing using the double nut method

Tip #2
Use some blue threadlocker when installing the stud into the wheel hub. This will help lock and secure the stud and prevent vibrations from turning the bolt. Red thread locker requires heating of the bolt to remove if you need to change a bolt.

Tip #3
When installing the stud, do not place the nuts nose to nose. They can shear the tips onto each other and then get locked on the stud. When you go to remove the double nuts, you will keep removing the bolt as well.

Tip #4
Grab a couple of washers from Home Depot/Lowes and put them in the middle to create a friction plate. This helps tremendously with install and removal of the double nuts.

When putting on the first nut be sure to leave some room and not go all the way down to the bottom of the threads.

Torque the studs to 25ft/lbs

Tip #5
Wedge a soft handle screwdriver in the front rotor to keep it from spinning while you are torquing everything. Another option is have someone sit in the car and hold the brake down. You will need to put it in the top and bottom when installing the double nuts and removing them.

If installing spacers it is recommended to ensure that the nut gets a minimum of 7 full turns when torquing.

Now repeat 19 more times.............
