Buying different types of 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers will determine if you need longer wheel bolts. You do not need longer wheel bolts if you use bolt-on wheel spacers. Slip-on wheel spacers under 20mm require longer wheel bolts through the wheels and rotor, ensuring a secure number of turns and enough clamping force between the threads to keep all parts in place.
How Long Wheel Bolts Do 2023 Porsche Panamera Wheel Spacers Need?
The 2023 Porsche Panamera uses 30mm M14x1.5 wheel bolts to hold the wheel. 30mm wheel bolts will go through the wheel and rotor, ensuring that the wheel bolts seat fits. The threaded part of the wheel bolts will engage the rotor threads and leave a space, probably 1mm-3mm. The 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers also require the wheel bolts to be clamped to the seat of the wheel bolts.
2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers have increased wheel clearance, the increased thickness of wheel spacers is the length of stock wheel bolts that need to increase. A professional wheel spacers manufacturer will provide wheel bolts of the corresponding lengths. For example, when the thickness of 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers is 12mm, the length of longer wheel bolts should be 30+12=42mm. The exact length is the best. Considering the depth of the bolt holes and the engagement of the threads, longer wheel bolts result in the seat not clamping the wheel, shorter wheel bolts result in the threads not being fully engaged, and the wheel may fall off during driving.
Do Bolt-on 2023 Porsche Panamera Wheel Spacers Need Longer Wheel Bolts?
Bolt-on 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers do not require longer wheel bolts, as its construction uses additional wheel bolts to secure the wheel spacers. The length of these wheel bolts is based on the thickness of the wheel spacers and the length of the stock wheel bolts by machining the bolt hole depth of the wheel spacers to ensure that the thread length of the wheel bolts through the bolt holes can provide a sufficient number of safety turns. Most wheel spacers are factory machined for bolt hole depth, except for some models that require specific length wheel bolts.
Are Wheel Bolts Safe 2023 Porsche Panamera Wheel Spacers?
Suppose you use longer wheel bolts to secure slip-on 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers. In that case, BONOSS offers you the corresponding lengths of 12.9-grade bolts, which can be purchased separately or added to the wheel spacers purchase page. It has an excellent ultimate tensile strength of 152,000N and a proof load of 121,000N, which is stronger than the 10.9-grade stock wheel bolts. The 7075-T6 forged aluminum alloy washer eliminates the potential for bolt loosening, allowing the wheel bolts better to secure the 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers and wheels.
If you are using bolt-on 2023 Porsche Panamera wheel spacers, the additional five pieces of M14x1.5 wheel bolts will also require 140N.m of torque. When you hear the torque wrench “ticking,” it often means they have been tightened. You may need to recheck the installation of these parts after driving the vehicle for more than 100 miles, and regular checks will reduce the possibility of errors.
