1. Are Mercedes Benz SLK-Class R172 wheel spacers safe?
In general, the material of these R172 wheel spacers is steel or aluminum. They are installed between the hub assembly and wheel, pushing the wheels out and increasing the wheel track. The Mercedes Benz R172 spacers are safe as long as you use the high-quality ones and install them correctly. The tensile strength of R172 wheel spacers can resist great tension before breaking. Compared with some cheap cast wheel spacers, BONOSS forged wheel spacers are safer and stronger, the tensile strength ≥ 310Mpa (AL6061-T6), and the tensile strength of cheap spacer is about 125Mpa. When faced with bumps and impact loads, the higher tensile strength can withstand greater force without breaking. For details, please check Are Wheel Spacers Good or Bad.

3. Will BONOSS Mercedes Benz SLK-Class R172 wheel spacers cause vibration?
Actually, the wheel spacers just increase the wheel track and the grip. Mercedes Benz R172 wheel spacers can be used to correct the offset or solve the gap problem of larger brake kits. We recommend using the hub-centric wheel spacers, they can provide a better support and stability system. Their design purpose is to establish a tight connection between the wheel hub assembly and the wheels to ensure that the wheels bear the weight of the car. To make the spacer more fit the wheel hub assembly, the BONOSS spacers adopt the multi-stage hub-centric design and precision 0.02mm CNC machining, which effectively guarantees the safety and reliability of spacer quality and provides higher stability. Thereby reducing high-speed vibration, so it is safer. For details, please check Why do You Need Wheel Spacers with Hub Centric Rings.
4. What are the benefits of the “Lightweight Plus” design of BONOSS forged Lightweight Plus wheel spacers?

Compared with the previous generation product, the weight is reduced by 20%, and the weight is reduced, making the system works more efficiently. The overall comfort of the overall acceleration and handling performance is better, and the driving is safer.
5. What are Mercedes Benz R172 spacers make of? How do they stand out from the common?
BONOSS forged Mercedes Benz SLK-Class R172 wheel spacers are made of high-grade 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Due to the continuous stress cycle and deformation process, forged wheel spacers become stronger and stronger, and their strength is greatly improved. This metal has good mechanical properties and taking AL6061-T6 as an example, its tensile strength ≥ 310Mpa, yield strength ≥ 275Mpa, and failure elongation ≈ 10%. Compared with industry standards, the cheap spacers which using low-quality materials are not strong enough and will deform and endanger driving safety under strong impact. In contrast, BONOSS insists on producing professional Mercedes Benz R172 wheel spacers far higher than the industry’s safety and professional standards.

10. What is the difference in vehicle handling experience after installing BONOSS Mercedes Benz R172 spacers?
Wheel spacers are a cost-effective way to increase the track without changing the wheels. As the width of the track increases, the overturn resistance is enhanced, and the weight of the vehicle is evenly distributed on all wheels, thereby improving the ride comfort. When the wheelbase increases, the vehicle’s grip is also enhanced, which is very effective when the vehicle is turning. When the offset of the wheel is insufficient, the wheel spacer will compensate for the custom offset by pushing the wheel away from the hub. By pulling the wheels out of the ideal distance, large brake kits can be installed without rubbing the suspension parts. The tolerance of the BONOSS wheel spacer is 0.02mm, which is more suitable for the wheel hub, reducing the vibration of the vehicle at high speed and providing a smoother driving experience.

11. What kind of Mercedes R172 spacers should I choose to fit other brand wheel rims such as BBS wheel rims, Vossen wheel rims, OZ wheel rims?
Mercedes R172 wheel spacers, wheel studs, and lug nuts are equally important to the wheel. An excessive positive offset will cause friction between the inner side of the rims and the suspension components. In this case, installing wheel spacers can provide the clearance required to avoid friction between the inner side of the rims and the suspension assembly, and correct the deviation by pushing away from the rims. Mercedes Benz R172 Wheel spacers can also be used to adapter the car’s pattern and center bore diameter. In this way, aftermarket rims with different data can be installed. For example, BBS wheel rims, AMG wheel rims, AEZ wheel rims, Antera wheel rims, OZ wheel rims, and Vossen wheel rims. Compared with those cheap cast spacers, BONOSS Mercedes R172 spacers are safer and more professional. For more detail, please click When to Use Wheel Spacers for Aftermarket Wheels.
12. How do I choose Mercedes Benz R172 spacers for avoiding the problem after installing Prior Design brakes, AP Racing brakes, Brembo brakes, or other brands?
High-performance brake kits are usually larger than car parts, and the caliper usually cannot be accommodated in the original rim space. By replacing a larger rim, a suitable gap can be obtained and avoiding friction between the rim and the brake caliper. If you have installed a larger brake caliper and want to fix the current wheel on the vehicle without scratching, installing the Mercedes R172 spacers will be the most cost-effective solution. Mercedes R172 wheel spacers can be adapted to Brembo wheel brakes, AP Racing wheel brakes, Prior Design wheel brakes, EBC wheel brakes, Endless wheel brakes, and Alcon wheel brakes. Compared with those cheap cast spacers, BONOSS Mercedes Benz R172 spacers are safer and more professional. For more detail, please click When to Use Wheel Spacers for Big Brake Kit.
13. What kind of Mercedes Benz R172 spacers do I choose to fit the body kit or aero kits?
Usually, wide-body kits including the upgrades of larger-size wheels and bigger brake kits, and the Mercedes Benz SLK-Class R172 spacers allow adding larger wheels and larger brakes. This is a very safe upgrade if you are going to drive a wide-body car on the track. Installing spacers is the simplest and most effective modification to low the chassis, widen the wheel track and make the wheels flush with the fenders. Mercedes Benz R172 wheel spacers can be matched with AMG wide-body kit, Brabus wide-body kit, Carlsson wide-body kit, Liberty Walk wide-body kit, and Hamann wide-body kit. BONOSS Mercedes Benz R172 wheel spacers have 3mm-20mm thick for choosing. For more detail, please click When to Use Wheel Spacers for Wide-body Kit.
14. How to choose Mercedes Benz R172 wheel adapters for installing Audi wheels, BMW wheels, Porsche wheels, or other else?
For the same wheel bolt pattern, we can customize a 3mm to 160mm wheel adapter to fit the wheel, and what you will need to do is check the thickness you need and contact us. In some sense, the Mercedes Benz SLK-Class R172 wheel adapters also play the role of wheel spacers increasing the wheel track. Because wheel adapter can push the wheel outward too, and make the wheel flush with the fender. At the same time, it can also be used to solve the gap issue of brakes, tie rods, and other suspension parts. Compared with spacers, Mercedes Benz R172 wheel adapters can change the PCD and the center bore diameter so that you can install wheels with different data. In brief, installing wheel adapters make the vehicle obtain better turning performance, a smoother driving experience, and a fuller appearance. For more detail, please click Do you need wheel spacers or wheel adapters.
15. How to measure and determine the thickness of the Mercedes Benz R172 spacers?
Use a straight edge or metal square, to attach it to the outer side of the wheel and the inner side of the fender for measurement. The distance range is the choice of the thickness of the spacer with a flush or almost flush appearance with the fender. If the spacer is too thin, you will still be affected by the wheel or caliper, if it is too thick, the tire will hit the fender. Therefore, the use of spacers of appropriate thickness can not only ensure safety but also avoid violation of local laws and regulations due to the overly prominent appearance of the wheel. At present, BONOSS Mercedes Benz R172 spacers have a thickness of 3mm-20mm for choosing. For more detail, please click How to Measure Wheel Spacers for My Vehicle.
