    do you have a side by side comparison of the long versus short TI Lug Nuts and also on a wheel ?

    what is the final recommendation for the torque lbs for the TI Lug Nuts on the GT350R carbon fibre wheels. I believe the factory recommendation is 150LBs of torque for dry application with the OEM steel bolts and nuts. I would not take a chance unless there is a recommendation and confirmation by an expert.

    No recommendation has been provided other than what has been working. To date there are over 100 sets being used on the street and track without issue. Most enthusiasts using them are at 125-135 ft/lbs. And they work on the F150 Raptor as well.

    I actually haven't done in side by side photos on a wheel since they are specific lengths for the front and rear. This ensures they protrude the same amount front to back. There wouldn't be a situation where you needed to interchange them, but some more installed photos are below.

    Titanium lug nuts have been in use for decades from many other manufacturers across many other makes/models of cars. I wouldn't call it taking a chance, but it all depends on your personal comfort level.

    The anti-seize is only needed to prevent galling. You may want to consider a Zinc based anti-seize as it should not affect the torque values. Check out the link below.

    Rick,

    Cost on these is $400 shipped in the long or short version. I sell them direct, so just send me an email or DM to get an invoice for some. You will want the all short set, and I think I have one more set in stock.
