Wheel studs

Searched but didn't find what I'm looking for. After my second stud break on my '14 FRS, I've decided to replace them all. It appears that ARP is the preferred brand. Is that the case? Looks like...

I agree it's a great car, but disagree about the fastest handling. My Mazdaspeed Miata was about 200 pounds lighter and far nimbler. No contest when it came to tossability, at least for me. The 86...
