What do lock wheel bolts do? Do I need locking wheel bolts for Mercedes C300 wheels? How to remove a wheel lock bolt? With the release of the new 2022 W206-generation C300 Sedan, these topics become increasing. Although the Mercedes OEM wheels have been equipped with anti-theft wheel bolts, when you change to aftermarket wheels, these stock bolts may not be suitable. Wheel bolts are relatively small components under extremely large forces, and they are absolutely critical to locking the wheel on the Mercedes W206 so that the seat type and other fitment are quite important. Besides, if you use lighter wheel bolts, they will improve the performance of your C300 W206 to a certain extent. Aesthetically, the lug bolts are actually an easy, instant, and effective beginning of wheel style changing. By installing new style bolts, you can make the C300 look good, personalized, and different.
What do locking wheel bolts do?
If you’ve ever brought your car to a shop for new rims and tires, you’ve probably been asked whether your vehicle needs a wheel lock bolts kit. The lock wheel bolts kit (also called anti-theft wheel bolts) consists of two parts, the bolts, and the key. They are used to defend criminals from stealing your wheels. They come with a unique heptagon shape head design, which requires a special matching socket for installation and removal. Even if the thieves have a full set of socket wrenches, they won’t have the unique seven-sided socket to fit. And the key usually comes in a set that can be found with the spare area in the package box. Getting these lock bolts for your rims is an effective way for wheel protection.
How to Confirm the Seat Type of Bolts for New Wheels?
There are conical seats (also called “cone” or “tapered” seats), ball seats (also called “radius” or “rounded” seats), flat seats (also called “mag” seats), etc. A 60° Conical Seat is the most common and is found on most aftermarket wheels. But there may be differences, so please take a check to your new rims. You can get information from the wheel manufacturers or just touch the lug seat around directly with your fingers. Typically, for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C300 W206 factory wheels, the seat type of the lug bolts will be the ball seat. For the aftermarket wheels, the seat type of the lug bolts can be conical or ball seat, few are flat seat. It is essential that the wheel bolts seat and the wheel lug seat match. If the wheel bolts seat type does not fit the wheel lug seat type, it is possible that the wheel bolts would be bent or damage the wheel. The mismatch between bolts and wheels could potentially cause the bolt to loosen and the wheel to become insecure to the vehicle.
