True Ti has a greater strength/weight but whenever comparing materials grades and alloys have to be compared to compare strengths as they can be all over the place.Titanium is is far stronger, pound-for-pound. So High grade stainless steel would be stronger, but weigh about twice as much.
The specifics depend on whether the Titanium is an alloy or pure metal, and the metal you are comparing it with.
The weight savings is the big benefit here since any weight saved from the wheels/tires/brake rotors/ axles, et. al. Is both rotating mass and unsprung weight. This gives exponential gains in acceleration and handling (I think a pound saved in unsprung weight is equal to three pounds of sprung weight...)
I thought I had wheel studs from a BMW that might be the right size, but I may have included them in the sale of a car several years ago.
Are those the ‘capped’ version? Assuming so, how are they held on? Is it just a friction fit?Just received mine! Showed a before and after along with a close-up. Looking good.
Here's the link to his eBay listing.Jeff, I'd like to purchase your titanium lug nuts for some Martian wheels...can you provide me with a link to your Ebay listing or otherwise contact me at Jfried at me dot com with purchase details. I can't seem to PM you??
