    Build thread in sig...
    you want to use blue. red "requires" heat to break loose. way overkill for spacer studs, and a good way to twist studs off down the road.

    I'd use blue if it were me. Red usually requires heat to break loose.

    Dammit, Colin beat me to it...

    The easiest rule is if you plan to remove them once in a while (like if you are removing the rotor for brake work) then use blue. Red is for bolts that you don't expect to remove on any kind of regular basis.
