I'd say depending on the Titanium grade. "low as you can go" usually Chinese stuff comes at about 10€ per piece. That means about 200€ for "Titanium" set. I have a sample on a way to take it to the material analyze to compare with the proper Grade 5 Titanium from Russia that is also on the way as a sample for a test. I'm curious what will be the difference if any at all. We will also test stock bolt. More later...

Beware the Chinese "sample", as it is not always representative of future shipments, based on other products.
No experience with Russian equivalent.

First sample prototype of GMS titanium stud bolt is here. Weight, looks and machining is superb. Let's see the quality of material...analyzing... 🧐

What's you estimate of total unsprung weight saving with titanium studs vs. stock nuts all around? And the studs are longer enough for 20mm spacers.

OEM is 292g/pcs, titanium is 45% of weight. If pin is hollow, hard to say, but if its massive, I'd guess not that much really..? 4-500g all around?
