Yes, you will want to use the Loctite Threadlocker 242 - Medium Strength - 1/4" to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts item # LT37418 to install the Redline Replacement wheel studs item # 25-53. This is the blue one you will be able to remove your studs in the future if you need to replace them.

The red Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube item # LT37420 is the one you would either want to use or stay away from if you don't plan on removing the bolt.
