Back then 2017, Mercedes-Benz GLS had few rivals in the full-size SUV market segment. GLS has a large space, a powerful V8 engine, and a cabin with top-of-the-line interiors and multi-functions. It is equipped with 19-inch tires and self-leveling air suspension provide GLS with support for off-road capabilities. It itself is an icon of top driving experience and luxury. BONOSS has also prepared wheel spacers for such a top crossover vehicle, providing you with the convenience of modification and driving stability. Of course, safety is a hot topic that cannot be bypassed by the wheel spacers, so today I will analyze and explain to you that the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 wheel spacers safe for your daily driving.
What Are 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 5×112 Wheel Spacers?
To discuss the safety of the wheel spacers, you need to understand what it is? If you know wheel spacers or car modification well, then you can skip this section. This is for those who are new to car modification.
So, the wheel spacer is a metal ring that is used to install between the wheel rotor and the wheel hub. Installing spacers can create some space in the wheel assembly, and make aftermarket wheels match perfectly to your vehicle. The wheel spacers are very usually in changing the new wheels or some brake calipers upgrades, that can help correct the offset of wheels.
BONOSS 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 5×112 wheel spacers are specifically matched to GLS, which corresponds to the BLA version spacers of BONOSS. The BLA version spacers have no studs, they match the vehicles that are designed to use the wheel bolts to fasten. And the number 5×112 is the GLS bolts pattern’ PCD. So, if you have the idea to choose a set of wheel spacers, these details you must pay attention to. Otherwise, the spacers with worry data will be harmful to your driving.
Is Using BONOSS 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS Wheel Spacers Safe?
With more than ten years of experience in the spacer industry, and having seen countless successful and safe cases, I can say that as long as the precise data and high-quality wheel spacers are installed correctly, it will make your car safer than before. What is a high-quality flange? The choice of spacer material is a very important judgment factor. High-quality spacers will use aircraft-grade materials or higher aluminum alloys like 6061-T6/7075-T6, to manufacture spacers by forging. To ensure the higher performance of the spacers, our BONOSS also adopts this industry’s top production method.
The other two factors are tensile strength and yield strength. The further one tensile strength means the wheel spacers can bear the maximum amount of tensile stress, the after one yield strength means the spacers can be applied before permanent deformation under the external forces. The strength of the wheel spacer is determined by these two factors. When your GLS meets bump and impact, higher yield and tensile strength can make your wheel spacers can ensure that no problems occur and will not affect your driving. So, in order to buy safe and high-quality Mercedes-Benz GLS wheel spacers, you must pay attention to these factors to ensure your driving safety.
You know what, although many stores you can find in any e-shops claim that they are selling 6061-T6 aluminum spacers, but they are not made by the forged process. As the matter of fact, they are often the cheap and nasty wheel spacers for more profits. Forging provides higher standard performance spacers than casting. BONOSS forged 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS wheel spacers are stronger and safer than those casting alternatives: Tensile Strength≥310Mpa (AL6061-T6), Tensile Strength≥572Mpa (AL7075-T6), Yield Strength≥275Mpa (AL6061-T6), Yield Strength≥503Mpa (AL7075-T6), and the Tensile Strength of the cheap alternatives is approximately 125Mpa below.
