Which recent porsche's use studs rather than bolts to mount the wheels? I'm looking for some locking lug nuts for my H&R adapters to run porsche wheels and this is what I need to know. I was told by 1552design that it might be the 993 or early 90's 911.
hmm, the only Porsches i've ever known that used bolts were made a while ago. the 4-bolt 924s are that way.
which ones have studs? well let me put it this way:
the 924 (5-bolt), 944 (all versions), 928 (all versions), 968 (all versions), and 1970s-current 911s all have wheels that are basically interchangeable with each other (except the offset is a tiny bit different). as far as i know, all of those cars use nuts to hold on the wheels, and there are studs mounted to the hub.
does that answer the question? sorry, i'm not a "wheel and tire" guy when it comes to aftermarket Porsche wheels. you can bet that if it's any of the models i named above, it has studs mounted to the hub, and you don't need bolts to hold the wheels on.
i know the 914s used bolts, and i'm pretty sure the 911s of that time period did, too. it would make sense at least, though all i can say for sure is that 914s had them ([chris farley voice] i know] from experience[/chris farley voice])

no problem! matter of fact you could order locking nuts and may came with them. my 944 came stock with porsche factory locking nuts. they give you MANY extra keys because if they break... get out the drill.
