Stud conversion kit

Does any one know of any stud conversion kits out there that are not excessively long? I have been looking at the racing line stud conversion kit but the smallest stud they make is 70mm and I think that’s way to long for me since I don’t use spacers

Motorsport hardware has a lot of options, tuner lug nuts, titanium studs, pretty much whatever you want.

You don't have to get any particular length, as long as you get open ended lugs you can run any length. 44 is fine, no spacers, maybe okay with 5mm. You have to measure your wheel to know how much the center eats up for the lug seat.

Get MSI Racing studs. Settle for nothing else because they are all pretty much inferior and made in the same factory.
MSI makes great studs. I have them on my Cooper S. Do they make a R-13 lug nut?

I got mine from Rennline:
Rennline wheel studs
I got the 35 mm size, which is their shortest. I did not want studs that would stick out past the surface of the wheel, and these are perfect. Although these are marketed for Porsche, they fit the stock VW hubs. Rennline did NOT have the proper nuts to fit factory VW wheels (R13 ball seat); the Porsche nuts have a different radius seat. I can't remember where I got my nuts ;) Be sure to get the right nuts for your wheels.

Thanks for the info. I think I will get the same studs at 35mm. I can’t believe how difficult it is to find r13 nuts in black
