Using 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers is a good practical application for aesthetic purposes and off-road performance upgrades. It is the most cost effective and easiest way to widen your truck without damaging the ride quality. The F150 wheel spacers have a direct relationship with wheel offset. Running a standard +44 offset rim with a 1.5-inch wheel spacer has a similar effect as running a +6 offset rim. By moving the tires out about 38.1mm, they make the truck look rugged, powerful, and muscular. You can achieve such a purpose without replacing the wheels.
While a good look is important, many off-road enthusiasts care more about practical use. If you add a 1.5-inch wheel spacer on each tire, then the track width will increase by about 3 inches. This is a big improvement for your off-road ride. For example, the wheels sit further away which provides better stability and rollover resistance. Your 4×4 machine will cross obstacles more efficiently. In addition, 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers add about 38.1mm inner wheel clearance. This allows you to install bigger tires and larger brakes safely and nicely.
Do 1.5-inch F150 Wheel Spacers Solve Big Brake Clearance Issues?
These 1.5-inch F150 Wheel spacers can easily solve big brake clearance issues. Before installing a performance brake system, you should always confirm that there is enough room left for wheels, regardless of wheel size. Typically, performance brake calipers are bigger than the originally equipped ones. Larger brakes are often required more space to fit. Thus, it is necessary to utilize F150 wheel spacers or to upgrade to aftermarket wheels with more backspacing. Aftermarket wheels usually vary in style, seat types, and materials. It may spend more time and budget to get the correct set. In this case, 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers are another cost-effective option to maximize wheel fitment easily.
Apart from the basic function, BONOSS forged active cooling 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers provide additional advantages. These BONOSS forged 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers are designed with heat dissipation grooves to make brake cooling better. The heat dissipation grooves behind the wheel spacers boost the cooling efficiency, reducing brake thermal decay, and improving road safety. In addition, the side knurling design eliminates internal stress and enlarges the cooling area which is good for the active cooling effect. Always stick to quality 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers, there will be no problem at all.
What Materials Are Best for 1.5-inch F150 Wheel Spacers?
Wheel spacers have existed for decades. For hundreds of years, spacer manufacturers have produced many variants with significantly different properties. Aluminum alloys are strong and durable. Due to the material properties, Aluminum 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers are also better in corrosion resistance. As tire specialist claim, aluminum wheel spacers are a good idea for most 4×4 off-roading needs. BONOSS forged active cooling 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers are made of forged 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 aluminum alloys.
By subjecting the material to tremendous stresses, the forging process eliminates internal voids, thereby providing better structural integrity. In simple words, BONOSS forged active cooling 1.5-inch F150 wheel spacers are far safer and more reliable than other cheap alternatives. They undergo a series of safety tests before leaving the factory. The tensile strength is up to 572 MPa and the yield strength is up to 503 MPa. High tensile strength gives it strong resistance to being pulled apart, making it resistant to bending and breaking.
