    Titanic Sale on Titanium! Hey everyone, we at Tikore are settled back in from our SEMA trip. Nothing like walking into SEMA and the very first car you see.... a 1000hp Porsche with our bolts on the wheels... lets just say it set the tone for our trip.

    We have had many of you ask about a possible group buy. Lets do it. This is what we've got:

    - Sale has ended, pricing and information removed -

    Dear Joshua, Count me in for a set of the two piece ones. Let's hope we get enough people interested in taking care of a weak spot in our cars.

    And because Porsche hadn't anticipated having such obsessive-compulsive owners who populate the Planet 9 community.

    Do you need a special socket to remove or tighten these lug bolts?

    Special socket not required. However, some people do prefer to use a soft socket.

    One could make the argument that 2 piece is better, since it would provide an absolute perfect fit when tightened due to the floating seat. Most other cars use a 1 piece. Porsche uses a 2 piece... Porsche folk tend to want something just a little bit better.

    Joshua, I will buy a set of the 2-piece bolts. Had all the wheels off my car and was astounded how crappy the stock bolts looks. Thanks!

    re: TiKORE Titanium Lug Bolts - Holiday Group Buy (Now Over)

    At K-Man S' request, I have just put up a review in the articles section documenting my initial impression with these TiKORE bolts from 12/2010 here:

    titanium lug bolts for Porsche - Articles

    Hard to believe it's been a year already. So far the bolts have held up fine and still look great. Highly recommended.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for offering a group buy. I was wanting to know what size titanium lugicon bolts are used for a Boxster S (2007)? What is the lenght? Aso, have you reached 5 for the group buy?

    re: TiKORE Titanium Lug Bolts - Holiday Group Buy (Now Over)

    Posting a list (as done previously on this site) might be a good way of showing who's in on the group buy, and might just motivate people (like me) who are on the fence.

    I am interested if it makes it to 10 (can't afford otherwise)

    What is the weight savings we are seeing on these?

    The weight of the factory set is 4.11 lbs.
    The weight of the TiKORE set is 3.07 lbs.

    Please note the factory set features an aluminum ball seat, thus lighter weight in that area, but risk of wearing down the seat and oxidization of the aluminum. These bolts offer weight savings and an escape from the weathering that we all see from Porsche lug bolts.
