Aftermarket wheels are designed to improve the appearance and performance of your vehicle. Since they are designed by different manufacturers, there are many differences from the original equipment factory wheels. If you add aftermarket wheels, make sure you have lug bolts that will fit properly. However, most stock lug bolts will not work on the aftermarket wheels. That’s why we recommend purchasing a new lug bolt kit to fit your wheels. If you’re considering getting new wheels to fit your vehicle, it’s important to ensure you have the right hardware. A set of aftermarket bolt kits come with all the necessary hardware to safely secure your wheels to your vehicle. They are made based on your specific vehicle and matched up to the wheel/rim. This provides a better installing experience as well as good safety.
When Do You Need to Replace Your Stock Lug Bolts?
Lug bolts are standard that used to secure the wheel to European-built vehicles. When you upgrade to aftermarket wheels, equipping your vehicle with the correct lug bolts is very important to ensure the safe and reliable installation of the wheels. Depending on the wheels and vehicle hub, lug bolts vary in the thread, length, seat type, or others. Thread engagement refers to how much contact your lug bolt has, or how many complete turns before it is tight. For your safety, proper thread engagement must be met. Common seat types of wheel bolts include conical seat, ball seat, flat seat, etc. If you get aftermarket wheels, it is important to confirm the lug seat type of your wheels. You can get information from the wheel manufacturers. Making sure you have lug bolts with the correct seat type that will fit safely. It is recommended that check whether the lug bolts are installed correctly or not by spinning the wheel while it’s off the ground, making sure it has 360-degrees of motion.
