Product Release! – CorkSport Lightweight Extended Lug Nuts

CorkSport Performance would like to announce the addition of the 20 piece Extended Lightweight Lug Nut Set to its line of high performance Mazda accessories.

Crafted from 7075T6 aluminum, aerospace quality alloy that boasts an impressive ultimate tensile strength of 74,000 – 78,000 psi and minimum yield strength of 63,000 – 69,000 psi., the CorkSport Extended Lightweight Lug Nuts are guaranteed to hold up even under the most demanding driving conditions and weigh-in at a mere .8 ounces each, 29% lighter than the Mazda OEM lug nuts, making this an easy way to enhance the look of your car while losing unsprung weight.

Each lug nut is meticulously crafted from an extruded aluminum billet and CorkSport utilizes CNC machinery to ensure the highest grade of precision quality during production. The CorkSport Extended Lug Nuts come in black with CS laser etched logo for a long lasting, durable finish.

“Many of CorkSport’s customers spend good money on their wheels and want a good looking lug nut to compliment them”, said Rich Harris, President of CorkSport, “The CorkSport lug nuts are not only lighter-weight than traditional lug nuts but help to enhance the overall look of the vehicle, making this a styling upgrade that possesses performance benefits as well.”

The CorkSport Extended Lug Nuts have been developed specifically for Mazda and Mazdaspeed vehicles with 12mm x 1.5 pitch thread for exacting fitment and require a standard 19mm socket for installation. They are available for purchase at for $99.00.

Product Sneak Peek – CorkSport Fall Line-Up

I attended my first research and development meeting at CorkSport a couple weeks ago and spent the morning and well into the afternoon reviewing product submissions and discussing the viability and potential demand for each of the ideas that were submitted to us.

We reviewed over forty-five product submissions and ranked them on feasibility, development time, demand, and the value it would provide to our customers. Coming out of that meeting, I think customers will be pleased with some of the fantastic products coming to market over the next six months and though we are keeping our cards close to our chest on some of the exciting products we have in store for all you Mazda performance enthusiasts, I will divulge some the new products you can expect to see released in the coming weeks.

Lug Nuts – As early as next week, you can expect to see new CorkSport Extended Lightweight Lug Nuts added to our list of performance accessories. Thanks to the feedback from our Facebook Fans, we will be offering them in black as the overwhelming color of choice. More to come on this product soon!

Shifter Bushings – Coming up before months end will be the CorkSport Shifter Bushings. Removing unwanted play in your car’s shifter mechanism, our bushing kit will greatly improve the feel of shifting in your vehicle.

Gen 1 Mazdaspeed 3 FMIC kit for SRI – Expanding on the success of our recent Gen 2 Mazdaspeed 3 release of a FMIC kit for SRI, CorkSport will be releasing a version for Gen 1 Mazdaspeed 3 drivers by the end of the month! Like our Gen 2 version, the FMIC kit for SRI will provide solid power gains without the lag commonly seen in larger FMIC kit’s that require removal of the crash bar.

Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar – Currently on a fall release schedule, the CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Rear Sway Bar will greatly improve handling by tightening up the rear suspension. The Rear Sway bar can be purchased stand alone or can be used to compliment the CorkSport Mazdaspeed 6 Front Strut Bar.

CorkSport LED Under Hood Lights – Also on the fall release schedule is a kit that will illuminate your entire engine compartment. The CorkSport LED Under Hood Lights are a low power draw kit that will attach to your battery, includes an automatic on/off switch and will cast a cool blue/white luminescence on your engine bay.

These represent just some of the products you can expect to see in CorkSport’s fall line-up. More will be introduced as the development and testing process winds-up.
