The practicality of Aftermarket Wheel Bolts

If you’ve purchased a set of aftermarket rims, you’ll possibly need to replace your stock wheel bolts to match the new wheel insert holes. Aftermarket wheel bolts come in three standard types: cone seats, ball seats, and flat seats. 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. Aftermarket wheel bolts are made to match specific mounting holes and fit different seat types of rims. This is especially important if your aftermarket wheels are not compatible with OE wheel bolts.
