low quality screws have been a frustration. I hate wringing the head off of a screw. I'd rather have a few extra grams from titanium than break an aluminum screw.

Don t try acer titanium screws. They are expensive and low in quality.

I switched to a cheaper screw set like yeah racing and no problem.

Honestly, I have used Tony's Screws since he started his business and for off-road, there is nothing better. I have never gotten a bad screw from him. I order a kit from him for every new car and I assemble the kit with his screws. They are super high quality, but they are steel. I can find another way to save weight. Aluminum screws are garbage. They might be lighter, but they stink. If someone would create an affordable titanium screw set, I would consider it, but I am forever done with aluminum and I won't spend as much on titanium screws as a new motor cost.
