The potential of the C-Class can be tapped with the necessary upgrades, perhaps by fitting larger performance brakes, replacing the wheels with superior alloy wheels, or adding the excellent wheel spacers from BONOSS. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will in all probability follow the 2022 re-upgraded C-Class, and the keyword we get from the current look of the C-Class is sportiness. And often the C-Class as a compact model is probably better suited to young drivers, with acceleration from a start, smooth cornering, and necessary braking being the driving objectives. “The C300 helps bolster the case for the axiom that it’s more fun to drive a slow car fast than it is to drive a fast car slow.”
What Wheel Spacers Do I Need?
We need to know the hub assembly PCD and CB data for the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class to get the right wheel spacers. If the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class follows the 2022 data, it will have a PCD of 5×112 and a CB figure of 66.5 for the W205 chassis. The code number usually represents the consistency of the data. Of course, there will be corrections after the actual measurement of the data, BONOSS does not make assumptions regarding the data, so what wheel spacers should you choose to fit your Mercedes-Benz C-Class according to this data?
How Big of Wheel Spacers Can I Use?
Whichever thickness of wheel spacers you choose to buy, you should first measure the wheel gap of your vehicle. This step can be measured in a very simple way. Take a straightedge and place it on the outermost part of the rim/tire. Use the ruler to make contact with the rim or tire in two positions to maintain the correct gap. Measure from the outer wheel to the edge of the fender to see how much space you have to keep the wheel and fender flush. Repeating this on the front and rear wheels will help you to get an idea of the size of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class wheel spacers required. Installing wheel spacers at the same time will correct the wheel offset of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class by reducing the offset from the OEM wheel offset. Installing 15mm wheel spacers will reduce the offset by 15mm, which will effectively prevent your new offset wheels from rubbing on fenders or other chassis suspension components. Another ideal calculation is to use the wheel offset minus the final ideal offset, the difference being the ideal thickness of the wheel spacers for the 2023 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
5mm-20mm wheel spacers are a common choice for Mercedes-Benz C-Class customers, 5mm wheel spacers are often chosen for performance brakes that require more space, and 10mm-15mm wheel spacers for better handling and a fuller look, and other thicknesses are chosen for the owner’s personal preference.
After getting the correct PCD, CB, and wheel spacer thickness, knowing the performance criteria for wheel spacers will help you get the best wheel spacers. BONOSS has designed hundreds of hub centric for the safe use of wheel spacers with a 100% fit to the original vehicle data, CNC machined to high precision tolerances of 0.02mm.
How Do Wheel Spacers Affect Handling?
Fitting wheel spacers to the front wheels will increase the turning radius somewhat, thus making the vehicle more stable at higher speeds and reducing the vehicle’s roll angle due to the change in center of gravity, this change is based on a reasonable amount of front-wheel offset. The small amount of wheel rotation is fed back to the steering wheel when driving, providing a more tangible driving experience for you.
The addition of wheel spacers to the rear wheels is different, as the rear wheels are not involved in the rotation, more feedback will come from the stability of the vehicle when accelerating, especially when overtaking large vehicles where airflow will have a greater impact on the vehicle’s stabilizers, adding a certain amount of wheel track will help the vehicle to combat airflow and stabilize the body. The addition of a wheel track will also help to stabilize the vehicle in the event of strong side winds at high speeds. In most cases, it is recommended by BONOSS to install four-wheel spacers to correct the offset of the front and rear wheels at the same time.
