Stock wheel studs. Have never had any need for anything else in 20+ years.

Way back when, in the early 2000s, I broke a couple of stock wheel studs at HPDEs. At that point I was running the stock acorn style lug nuts. I shifted to aftermarket lug nuts (RAYS, Gorilla, McGard at various times over the years), still with stock wheel studs, and have never had a problem since.

I have equipped my 2013 WRX with arp extended studs. I did the ATS-V brake swap and didnt want to chance thread engagement with the new spacer and wider wheel combo. The studs are great but are almost impossible to install without shop tools and a press if you car has ever been exposed to the elements.

Was it super necessary, probably not, was I going to chance it, no.

The general rule of thumb for thread engagement is about 8 full rotations of thread engagement for your lug nuts to ensure they are safe. You could most likely get away with only 6 but if something does happen to go wrong it will be very dangerous and expensive.
