As long as you choose the right thickness of high-quality 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers, it will be safe when tightening all the parts. Do Slip-on wheel spacers and bolt-on wheel spacers require different torques for different constructions? What tools do you need to install wheel spacers? Does a bigger torque mean that wheel spacers are safer? BONOSS will explain the torque and precautions for installing wheel spacers.
How Much Torque 2023 Maserati Levante Wheel Spacers?
Understanding the part specifications of the 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers will help you get the corresponding torque. 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers use M14x1.5 wheel bolts with tapered seats, you need to use a 17mm socket to remove and install these wheel bolts, and for some specific anti-theft aftermarket wheel bolts, you need specially shaped sockets.
If you are using bolt-on type 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers, the stock and aftermarket wheel bolts need to be installed using a torque of 140N.m. Similarly, the slip-on type 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers must be torqued to 140N.m to ensure they are tightened. Tighten the wheel bolts twice clockwise until you hear a “ticking” sound from the torque wrench.
Should I Use Loctite on 2023 Maserati Levante Wheel Spacers?
Loctite will allow the 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers to adhere to the hub assembly. The various colors of Loctite differ in strength and removability. Red Loctite is emphasized for industrial-grade products, and most customers also choose to add Loctite to the back of wheel spacers or wheel bolts, which can lead to an increased possibility of accidents with wheel spacers. 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers need to fit perfectly on the back of the hub assembly. The use of Loctite may cause gaps in them.
The first reason why Loctite is not recommended by professional 2023 Maserati Levante wheel bolts manufacturers is that there should not be any liquid or solids between the threads of the wheel bolts, which is why the threads need to be cleaned of debris before installing the wheel bolts, Loctite may cause a difference in the torque of the wheel bolts installed, and they may not reach the standard Torque means they may have the possibility of coming off. Loctite will make this tedious when you need to change your tires at the roadside. The red Loctite needs to be heated to 500F to dissolve.
The 2023 Maserati Levante wheel spacers and wheel bolts are safe due to precision and clamping force. The precision of the wheel spacers will help it always fit the hub assembly and the wheels, and the hub-centric wheel spacers will ensure that the wheels are in a centered position. A torque of 140N.m applied with a 17mm socket will ensure that the wheel bolts generate sufficient clamping force to hold the wheel spacers and the wheels in the same position.
Does a Bigger Torque Mean that 2023 Maserati Levante Wheel Spacers Are Safer?
It is wrong common sense that greater torque is applied to wheel bolts to ensure greater safety. Including daily tire changes and wheel bolt replacements, professional repairers will use torque wrenches for installation. The specific torque will prevent plastic deformation of wheel bolts. Wheel bolts will cause wear and tear every time they are disassembled. The increased torque means that the threads of the wheel bolts may be staggered and deformed, which may cause deformation of the head when the wheel bolts are disassembled.
