How do I know what EQE wheel spacers I need? Do I need longer bolts for Mercedes EQE wheel spacers? Who sells Mercedes EQE wheel spacers near me? With the coming of the Mercedes EQE, these topics have become very popular. As a kind of aftermarket wheel component, the wheel spacer is a simple and inexpensive upgrade that provides many advantages to your Mercedes EQE. Installing Mercedes EQE wheel spacers can create extra clearance by pushing the wheels outward to correct positive offset as well as clear larger brake calipers rubbing issues for wheel fitment. They are also commonly used for handling improvement and visual enhancement. By pushing the wheels out, it will provide more stability and better cornering performance to your Mercedes EQE. The resistance to rollover also enhances when the wheels of the vehicle are moved outwards from the wheel hub. This is effective when the vehicle is driven in hard condition.

How Do I Know What EQE Wheel Spacers I Need?
The thickness of the EQE wheel spacers you need will be determined by measuring the wheel gap. If you have a straight edge metal ruler, place the straight edge on the outermost part of the rims where the wheel comes closest to the fender (preferably the top), then, measure from the outside wheel to the straight edge. This distance is the size EQE spacer you will need to achieve the look that flushes or nearly flushes with the fender. There are usually two types of wheel spacers: One type simply slides into the hub and come with their own lug studs and nuts, they are named “bolt-on wheel spacers”, while the other type bolts to the vehicle hub with another set of extended wheel bolts, they are called “slip-on wheel spacers”.
European cars usually use wheel lug bolts to secure the wheels to the hubs. In this case, slip-on style Mercedes EQE wheel spacers will be your most suitable choice. To ensure a proper installation, you will also need to use new extended wheel bolts which are longer than the stock ones by the thickness of the wheel spacers. All BONOSS slip-on style Mercedes EQE wheel spacers are matching with extended lug bolts (optional) with appropriate length, seat type, and thread to suit your Mercedes EQE.
What Kind of Material is Better for Mercedes EQE Wheel Spacers?
It is easy to notice that there are Mercedes EQE wheel spacers of different materials that exist on the market. When choosing safe Mercedes EQE wheel spacers, material selection can be very important. Since quality is a crucial part of wheel spacer safety, BONOSS only uses high-grade forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 billet aluminum alloy material for higher performance and safety. Both 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 are high-performance Aluminum Alloys. They feature good corrosion resistance, weldability, workability, and machinability. After the forged process, the structural strength, toughness, and corrosion resistance are improved greatly. In addition, the tensile strength of 7075-T6 is nearly double that of 6061-T6. The hardness of 7075-T6 is about 1.5 times that of 6061-T6. Both forged 6061-T6 and forged 7075-T6 Mercedes EQE wheel spacers are available in BONOSS Stock.

Do I Need Longer Bolts for Mercedes EQE Wheel Spacers?
BONOSS EQE Extended Wheel Bolts (also called longer wheel bolts, extended lug bolts) are designed with longer thread lengths to allow full thread penetration with EQE wheel spacers or wider aftermarket rims of a different offset. Any time you run wheel spacers, extended wheel bolts are a must option for properly fastening the wheel to the vehicle hub. They are made by the forged process. The forging process offers lots of advantages over other manufacturing processes for wheel bolts. Due to the continuous intense pressure extrusion, the forging process brings superior mechanical and physical properties. Among the key advantages are:
- High tensile strength and tough, safe and secure
- Hard and durable, guarantee long-term applications
- Better wear resistance and higher fatigue strength
- Elimination of porosity, evenly and tight internal structure
- Good polishing and finishing surface characteristics
The head part of BONOSS EQE Extended Wheel Bolts is Twelve Petals Shape. This design is not only for aesthetic purposes, but more importantly, it is a proof of super forging process (The edges and corners of the petal shape can only be manufactured by forging process, and such a uniform distribution requires a large-tonnage machine in one-time forming, which cannot be presented in a later turning process).
They are also thoroughly tested and inspected, certificated by SGS, TÜV authoritative institutions, truly guarantee safety:
