Hey guys. To anyone with a challenger strut brace and covers. I just installed some billet strut covers and I noticed I lost some threads due to its thickness. I am going to install a BMR brace as well but am concerned because I would lose even more threads to tighten the 3 nuts. Are there shallow nuts or another solution to keep things safe? My car is a 19 scat pack.
I've attached pics of the covers installed if it helps.

Would these be suitable replacement?

Those cosmetic strut covers are thick! Not sure I'd gamble with lack of thread engagement for such a vital front end component. I think you'll have to choose between prettiness or performance of a strut brace.

That's what I was afraid of maybe I can have them modified. I did swap the hardware for stainless lock nuts.
