Have I read or seen any complaints of using studs? No I have not.

Would you use them on your car? I know our carts don't have the weight or speed of a car but the same applies. The contact between the wheel and the hub with studs is minimal at best. The wheels were not designed to be installed with studs but where designed to be installed using the clamping force of the lug nuts or bolts. I just don't feel comfortable with the axial loads put on studs.

Should I use thread locker with these? If so red or blue? Also how tight should I torque these? Thanks.

I'm using 2.5" spacers on my G2, there the stud type. They have an allyn socket in the outside end. I tightened the stud into the spacer as tight as I could get it with a standard allyn wrench - then a small thump with a rubber mallet to finish it off. I've never had a problem and I torque the lug nuts 45-50 lbs. You didn't say what type ride you have, G2's or Yamaha's are metric and a 1/2" - 20 lug nut will start on and when you impact it tight will destroy the studs so don't mix up your lug nuts.
