Titanium wheel bolts are widely used in car upgrades. They are considered to be one of the easiest and quickest items that bring your car to higher performance. Many racing vehicles will use Titanium wheel bolts for strength and lightweight. As most people know, reducing unsprung weight makes your car faster. Lighten the vehicle weight decreases fuel consumption and improves engine efficiency, to some extent.
Besides, Titanium wheel bolts have the benefits of low density, as well as high-temperature resistance. This type of wheel bolt also has an extraordinary resistance to corrosion. A thin oxide (TiO2, titania) layer spontaneously forms cover on the surface to protect them against rust or corrosion. Some Titanium wheel bolts are made with unique heptagon shape heads which keeps the outside of the wheel bolts looking good and adds a superior layer of security to your wheels. A set of Titanium wheel bolts is actually your solution to ugly and insecure wheel bolts.
As the weight savings, you will get a better driving experience. Technically, every little bit of weight savings you do on the car should result in better stopping power and acceleration. If you would like to spend a small fortune getting forged performance wheels to save a few pounds of unsprung weight, why not go the rest of the distance to minimize the extra weight in the wheel bolts.
Better Appearance with Titanium Wheel Bolts
Apart from performance enhancement, Titanium wheel bolts will also make your vehicle look nicer. They come in a variety of styles and colors. No more monotone metal-grey, as the process develops, Titanium wheel bolts can be anodized to various colors, such as Nitrogen-blue and Coffee-golden. Simply put, color matching will essentially improve your design’s visual appeal. Therefore, you can invest in new Titanium wheel bolts to decorate the wheels. This adds a personalized style to your vehicle.
Excellent Compatibility with Titanium Wheel Bolts
Some Titanium wheel bolts are designed with floating seats. The floating seats are replaceable which allows for a perfect fit on any wheel. They are mainly available in two options depending on lug bolt size: conical seat and ball seat (R13 or R14). Besides, the separate design eliminates the bolts loosening and abnormal sound caused by the PCD hole coaxially deviation between the vehicle hub and wheels while driving. Since the floating seats are not fixed, they can effectively prevent your beautiful wheels from being scratched by the bolts.
Superior Security with Titanium Wheel Bolts
Many aftermarket wheel bolt kits provide 16 standard wheel bolts and 4 locking wheel bolts that require a special tool. To further improve the security, each heptagon Titanium wheel bolt is also a wheel lock. This means you get 20 wheel locks in a heptagon Titanium wheel bolts kit. Like other locking wheel bolts, this type of bolt requires a special heptagon socket for installation and removal. Even if the thieves have a full set of socket wrenches, they won’t have the unique seven-sided socket to fit. This effectively decreases the stolen risk of your wheels. The only time these heptagon Titanium wheel bolts can be removed is when the key socket with the correct pattern is inserted.
