Starlite hubs remain as the oval track benchmark standard. Based on the traditional eight-bolt drive flange design, Starlite hubs demonstrate superior strength from perminant mold, high density aircraft aluminum. The close tolerance castings are precision machined to assure consistent fit, strength and durability. Over the years, this innovative hollow core design has been refined and is race proven. Wilwood's high volume, quality assured manufacturing capability has made it both racing tough and economical.
Starlite hubs are available in standard offset for use with Superlite, Dynalite and Narrow Mount Dynalite series fixed mount calipers. The GM offset is available for use with GM style floating mount calipers. A new offset configuration is also available to accommodate the thickness of dynamic rotor mounting plates. Fine threaded 5/8" studs are also an option on the Starlite series.

What's The Angle
Most racing wheels have a 45° seat for the lug nut to seat in while most street wheels use 60°. By using 45° the lug nut is able to clamp tighter over a larger area, which helps keep your wheels on the car where they belong.
If you mix and match street and race wheels or lug nuts you are just asking for trouble. All our lug nuts are 45° and designed to be used with racing wheels.
Replace those "puny" stock wheel studs with these "super-strength" oversized wheel studs.
