A situation where the 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts come off can cause a wheel to fall off and lead to a serious driving accident. Using properly threaded, good quality 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts and installing them using the correct torque value can prevent 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts from falling off.
Why 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS Lug Nuts Fall Off？
2014-2018 Cadillac CTS Lug nuts fall off in the first case may be due to the installation of insufficient torque value, engagement turns are not enough, and loose during the driving process. The second situation may 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts the wrong seat, the seat type is mainly divided into three kinds, ball seat, conical seat, and flat seat, which can also be subdivided according to the different curvature, 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts use conical seat type, the wrong seat type will result in insufficient clamping force, the correct seat type will completely overlap with the base of the wheels, producing greater friction and clamping force at the recommended torque value, ensuring that the 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts will not loosen before the next disassembly.
The third case is 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts the case of fracture due to poor material quality, stock lug nuts generally use steel alloy material, durable but heavy weight, aftermarket lug nuts use steel alloy, aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, and other raw materials, of which the use of steel alloy and aluminum alloy is more.
The same point between the two is that there are different grades of materials, of which steel alloys can be divided into low-carbon steel and high-carbon steel, etc. The carbon content will affect the mechanical properties and tensile strength, and steel alloys with less carbon content will show better performance, while aluminum alloys are divided into different models, of which 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 models are more common, and 7075-T6 is the best performance aluminum alloy. There are inferior products on the market, which are often made of high-carbon steel or low-strength aluminum alloys, and pretend to be high-strength products.
The fourth situation is the 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts rusted, lug nuts rust prevention is very necessary. Because lug nuts are exposed to air contact for a long time and are in direct contact with rain and road water, they are easy to generate oxidation reactions. Lug nuts’ surface and threads will rust, if not regularly serviced and inspected, these rust stains will continue to oxidation and spread to the lug nuts inside, affecting the mechanical properties of 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts and causing metal fatigue, most importantly rust can make lug nuts expand in size and 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts may no longer be able to fasten wheels.
How to Choose Excellent 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS Lug Nuts?
BONOSS offers two types of 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts, the first one is honeycomb wheel lug nuts made of forged 7075-T6 aluminum alloy, featuring a close-end design to reduce external erosion and oxidation of the threads and to better protect the 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts and features a honeycomb design for the close-end. Available in nine colors in stock 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts to better match the wheel color, with an overall rust-resistant finish using hard anodizing.
The second one is the locking wheel 2014-2018 Cadillac CTS lug nuts made of titanium, featuring lighter weight, higher tensile strength, and better rust resistance. Each lug nut is only 34g, which obviously reduces the under-spring weight, which is good news for customers pursuing extreme driving performance. Excellent heptagon with a special locking socket, effectively protecting the wheel. Titanium alloy material forms a dense oxide film on the surface for better rust resistance, and BONOSS has hard anodized it on top of that, making it more durable than steel alloy and aluminum alloy products.
