Lug bolt to Lug nut conversion

So I want to do a conversion as stated above and just want to know from the guys that have done it or that know all about it.

Is there a conversion kit can get locally without having to order online?

My other question related to this what length of studs will I need to clear my 20mm spacers?

Here's a link to what I'm talking about:

Cannot view the link.

I'm looking into a set from Vorshlag. They come in either 75mm or 90mm. 75mm is good for spacers up to 12mm & 90mm is good for spacers up to 20mm.

You need 90mm studs to clear 20mm spacers.

There is no local vendor for this kind of stuff, if you do find them it will be expensive.
Just have them shipped across the border.

If anyone oakville Motorwerks can get them Im gonna check with them later this week I need a set so I can use my ronal rim cause the stock bolts won't even show thread through the hub. I've been told that the vorslag and turner ones are the best by some track guys.

That's not bad for 20 of them. You may be able to find cheaper ones but we are talking about what attaches the wheels to the car, I'll probley be ordering a set in late July.

Are you kidding me? Its only $50 for studs and lug nuts. I got 4 20mm spacers and the studs for $290 . $230 is outrageous. If you want to know a place to get them for this price let me know.

Sorry i didn't realize vroshlag was that expense. Their stuff is top notch though so i wouldn't doubt the quality.

bf.c usually has specials all the time, i suggest you check on there often.

Currently i see this one:
