Why do you need EQS extended wheel bolts? Are they safe on my Mercedes EQS? These are common questions when talking about aftermarket extended bolts. Wheel bolts are standard on almost all Mercedes-made cars and use threaded rods attached to ball seats that match the wheel inserts. The bolt goes from the wheel through the brake rotor cap and directly threaded into the vehicle hub, locking everything in place. Any time you run EQS wheel spacers, you need longer lug bolts. If you have installed a wheel with a spacer using OEM lug bolts, don’t be fooled by the fact that visually the wheel is securely fastened. Actually, the thread of stock bolts is enough for fastening the stock wheels, when putting an EQS spacer between the wheel and vehicle hub, the thread won’t be enough anymore. When your Mercedes-Benz EQS is loaded to capacity, an emergency maneuver performed at high speed may lead to a bolt failure.
How to Choose Proper Thread EQS Lug Bolts?
The EQS lug bolts are crucial hardware used to secure the wheel to the vehicle. Equipping your Mercedes EQS with the correct lug bolts is very important to ensure the safe and reliable mounting of the wheels. Common seat types of wheel bolts include conical seat, ball seat, flat seat, etc. If you use current wheels, just keep the same lug seat of extended wheel bolts. Most Mercedes-Benz car’s OEM lug bolts are ball seat. But if you upgraded to aftermarket wheels, then you need to make sure you have lug bolts that will fit properly. If you have added EQS wheel spacers, to meet proper thread engagement, the thread length of the matching EQS extended wheel bolts should equal the length of stock bolts plus the thickness of the spacer. Giving an example, if your stock bolt’s length is 27mm, and you have installed 12mm wheel spacers, then 39mm lug bolts will be required. It is recommended that check whether the lug bolts are fit correctly or not by spinning the wheel while it’s off the ground, making sure it has 360-degrees of rotation.
