      Anybody have a recommendation? I am using the crappy ones that Tire Rack sent me with my wheels. I was thinking it might be cool to get some blue aftermarket studs. Color isn't absolutely necessary, but I would like to get something higher quality than what I've got.

      Nope. Just buy some H&R lug bolts and paint them blue.

      Many places to get studs, never seen blue ones. You can get blue lug nuts...

      What are some decent brands? They don't HAVE to be blue, just need to be nicer than the cheap crappy ones I have.

      Just to be clear, are you referring to studs or lug bolts? I doubt that Tire Rack sent you studs with your wheels but so far the replies and suggestions go both ways.

      Was referring to lug bolts, actually. I've always had cars with lug nuts so I wasn't sure what to call them.
