How to set a centerlock wheels system?

Every center lock nut breaks apart into 6 to 7 pieces which include O-rings, gaskets and various other parts that need to be oiled by using specific oil that is advised for Porsche and put back together with care whenever you take out the nut. As Ferrari, Porsche, Gumperts, hosers, they all use a center lock instead of a 5 bolt pattern. No the question is that;

  • What are the actual benefits of this system?
  • Would they be lighter than having 5 smaller bolts?
  • Fast speed of removal instead of 4 or 5 bolts wheels.

Benefits of center-lock

1) Slightly lightweight

2) More area for brakes.

3) Technically stronger for wheels or lighter for the same strength.

Issues with center-lock

1) More torque to tighten

2) Often needs special tools to operate the special nuts

3) Low rim selection

4) High Cost due to low volumes

On the safety matter, many road cars with center lock wheels have some kind of clip outboard motor locks with mounting nut which would reduce the chance of its working off though not properly tightened. It's also a misconception to assume that a center lock system stuck in place at one point due to a wheel. You can see Ferrari F50 has center locking wheels system that has 6 mounting bolts on the hub to uncover the wheel.
