Do I need wheel spacers for my 2022 Mercedes-Benz C300 custom wheel offsets? How to install aftermarket wheels safely? With the release of the new 2022 W206-generation C300 Sedan, these topics become increasing. Because of cost limitations, OEM wheels are sometimes not as attractive as aftermarket wheels. That is why changing to the aftermarket wheels has become one of the most common vehicle modifications. These wheels not only enhance a car’s appearance, adding more style and an improved look but also improve the handling to a certain extent. But they are usually made to fit many different vehicles, which will likely not match the exact specifications needed to fit your vehicle. And wheel spacers (also called wheel adapters) can be an instant and effective solution for safely installing your finest wheels. Done properly, your modifications will be beneficial.
As Wheel Spacers for Positive Offset Matters
A positive offset is when the mounting plate is in front of the centerline of the wheel. The mounting plate will be closer to the outside. An excessive positive offset will cause the inner edge of your rims and tires to rub against the suspension components. It can also negatively affect your car’s handling, making it potentially dangerous to drive. In this case, wheel adapters can create the desired clearance to correct the offset by pushing the wheels away from the vehicle hub. Through this function, they can give your car an excellent look.
As Wheel Adapters for Bolt-Pattern Matters
Wheel adapters, often also referred to as PCD adapters or PCD hub adapters, allow you to fit wheels to your vehicle when the PCD doesn’t match. By using the wheel adapters, you can build your own PCD conversion custom specification. For example, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class uses G-Class wheels. The C-Class has a 5×112 bolt pattern. By putting a wheel adapter on the C-Class that has a 5×112 bolt pattern on the hub side (that will fasten with the matching lug bolts) and the wheel mounting side of the adapter will have matching inner lug nuts on it in a 5×130 bolt pattern. This allows 5×130 G-Class wheels to be attached to a 5×112 C-Class wheel hub.
As Wheel Adapters for Center Bore Matter
Wheel adapters can also be used to change the center bore of your car, making it possible for you to fit wheels with a different center bore to your vehicle. Most aftermarket wheels are lug-centric design because this allows manufacturers to make larger center bore diameter wheels that can fit a wider range of vehicles. Due to the larger center diameter of the wheel, there is a certain gap between the axle and the hub. Hub centric wheel spacers are designed to fill this gap, making a snug connection between wheel and vehicle hub. You can also custom the center diameter size, for example, 66.5mm to 70.5mm. By installing a wheel adapter on the 66.5mm size hub, you can mount a 70.5mm CB size aftermarket wheel. The center ring is machined to fit the existing wheel hub of your vehicle, while the hub-centric is made to fit your new wheels and the wheels are bolted onto the adapter with proper fastening.
