Best hub studs and lugs

I am looking for some quality hub studs maybe with polished bullet noses...also titanium lug nuts. The whole think has to look good as well.

Need to replace my beat up lug bolts

MSI makes top quality studs IMHO. That's what I use on my SPB:

I have Rennline studs and nuts installed on my car but they only come in black and look like the MSI's.

I did find this titanium set on the 6SpeedOnline forum but don't have any personal experience with them:

Thanks Gents I will go through all of your suggestions!!

Tom, astetically the world Motorsports kit you found is exactly what I was looking for! Design wise I would have liked to see more of a step transition between back and front threads; perhaps there are issues with clearing the brake rotor through holes.

I do also wonder about the durability of titanium stud vs chromoly; although I have caught some traffic rennline studs failing.

-is more of a step transion needed such that the stud buts up against the hub surface?
-is TI recommended for the stud application?

I just installed the Rennline studs and nuts. Good price, bulletnose tip. You have to double nut them and make sure you use high temp threadlocker...
